Intellinet Experts Participate as Mentors & Judges at Microsoft's Artificial Intelligence HackathonOn Saturday, October 13th, Microsoft and TAG in collaboration with the Data Science and Business Intelligence Society of Atlanta successfully hosted its first Artificial Intelligence Hackathon.  Experts from Intellinet, a management consulting and technology services firm, were honored to participate in the event as mentors and judges.  

Over 65 data scientists and students participated in the all-day hackathon center around A.I.  Teams were presented with two challenges.  The first challenge was to create a hack based using a variety of Azure components, including Cognitive Services, CosmosDB, and Azure Search.  The second challenge was to build a robust authentication system that uses both facial and voice inputs to verify a user from a set of pre-enrolled user profiles.

“The participation and ingenuity of the hackathon teams that participated exceeded our expectations” said Karim Lalji, Enterprise Data & AI Specialist at Microsoft.  “This was a great event for showcasing how Microsoft technologies can address real-world challenges and we grateful for Intellinet’s support and thought leadership during this inaugural event.”
