The two-day development marathon will be held on August 16 and 24 in Tartu. You can take part in the development marathon in person or online.
The main focus of the event is on creating artificial intelligence solutions through teamwork.
The first day of the development marathon focuses on AI-based project planning: what problem will AI solve, what is the technical solution, what is the impact of the solution on the company, what is the project schedule, budget and team.
The second day of the development marathon focuses on a short presentation of the project plan to an expert panel and the selection of pilot projects.
All companies that register for the development marathon also undergo a quick AI-based assessment to make sure that it is an AI solution.
Participating in the artificial intelligence development marathon is a requirement for setting up a pilot project and receiving funding of 25,000-75,000 euros. The expert panel at the end of the development marathon will make decisions about that funding.
The expert panel will give feedback to all the development teams participating in the event, and advice on how to improve their pilot projects. At the end of the development marathon the expert panel will choose:
- The projects that will receive funding to carry out their pilot projects
- The projects that can be taken straight to the applications panel of the AI technology accelerator and to the pilot projects round
The expert panel includes representatives from edutech, greentech, healthtech and industry, as well as professional associations, universities and science parks.
A total of € 370,000 will be distributed for the implementation of pilot projects!
