Check out the exciting challenges of DeepTech GigaHack. Ready to take them on?
EnergyTech Challenge: Using provided Energy Balance data, teams will engineer an accurate tool to predict energy usage trends for the upcoming years. This tool will clear up complex data patterns, revealing insights and producing forecasts for short and medium-term consumption across various sectors and energy sources.
Big Data Challenge: Participants who choose this challenge will engage in the creation of in-depth profiles for global-scale companies. Encompassing a broad array of dimensions including company history, financial standings, products, services, business models, and areas of specialization, these descriptions will come together to form a comprehensive and all-encompassing view. Another Big Data challenge refers to crafting a proficient machine learning model to forecast daily orders for retail establishments. The model’s primary objective is to reduce the likelihood of human-associated errors in order placement while seamlessly integrating seasonal patterns and trends within the predictions. The solution should be adaptable to nearly any company worldwide.
FinTech Challenge: Open Banking & Instant Payments – the participants will be tasked with creating a sophisticated algorithm that not only swiftly and accurately detects fraudulent activities but also provides insights to enhance financial security. Alternatively, participants can opt to craft an inventive instant payment platform that redefines user experience and sets new standards in fintech.
HealthTech Challenge: HealthTech enthusiasts are invited to reshape the narrative of patients’ medical histories, by designing a digital personalized avatar that accurately mirrors patients and their health journeys. From lifestyle choices to treatments and surgical interventions, this avatar will centralize medical insights, drawing from Electronic Health Records, Personal Health Histories, and DNA data. The DNA data will provide a basic picture of the person’s physical structure, including features like eye color, height, body shape, and others. Electronic Health Records (EHR) will offer historical data related to the person’s health status, including diagnosed illnesses, surgical interventions, and medical treatments. The Personal Health Record (PHR) will add an additional layer of information, including lifestyle, diet, exercise, and other activities that can influence a person’s health.
Open Challenge is tailored for those who find their innovation in unconventional places. If you’re confident in your capacity to craft an idea and solution addressing societal concerns, this is your playground.
