Quantexa Hackathon 2018
Quantexa Hackathon: 10 participants, 29 tasks, £7,000 worth of prizes
Quantexa ran a hackathon over Christmas – an optional event if employees became tired of the festivities and overindulging! Our rules: create something that is fun and interesting and will deliver value to our customers.
The tasks were focused on the following:
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)/machine learning/analytical tasks
- Core product enhancements i.e. visualisation and investigation features
- Demonstration building to showcase new features
After many hours of hard work, the participants were invited to showcase their chosen hackathon tasks which opened to a company vote. The winning technology feature, with the most votes, was awarded to Will Boulter.
Will designed a feature that enables risks and opportunities to be visually overlaid onto a network, highlighting key areas of interest for the investigators which ultimately improves efficiency when analysing large networks.
Thanks to all the participants – well done team!
