Devpost Achievements

Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:


Teams that already have registered with us are eligible to participate in AIHack 2021. Do not sign up if you do not have a confirmation e-mail from us already. 


You must submit your code and a video presentation where you clearly explain what you have done on Devpost for judging. The judging criteria is enclosed and you may find this useful! 

No hard requirement on the length of the written report. E.g. the main text can be 2-3 pages, but you should stop once you think you have elaborated your analysis enough. A suggestion is that it should have i) a non-technical summaries of your key findings and their significance, and ii) some technical exposition to describe your exploratory analysis/data processing/modelling. Supplementary plots, tables etc can be but into an appendix, if needed.
