Hackaton 'Hack The Future'

November 29 | Edegem

This year we welcome you and your teammate for the 5th edition of HACK THE FUTURE! As a student in your final year, you are at a major crossroad in your life. A brand new professional identity lies ahead, together with many questions considering: What now?

Hack the future is a 2-day experience-driven hackathon for last year students in an unique location – powered by Cronos Group.

The concept? 10 companies of the Cronos group challenged future IT experts (i.e. last-year IT students from several university colleges and universities) to create a piece of soft- or hardware in diverse disciplines. Every year, more than 500 students take up the challenge to develop an amazing soft- or hardware prototype.

Of course, a Hackaton is only a Hackaton when there is a major challenge to develop a solution based on SAP. The 2018 challenge is:

"Soon after the discovery of the artifact several days ago, our experts began detecting sporadic, unintelligible signals, transmitted planet-wide, seemingly originating from within the object itself.
Local scientists have put forward several theories on the nature of the signals, though there is no definitive answer as of yet. It could be some sort of intergalactic communication device, or possibly a location beacon of some sort, potentially gathering information about our civilization and technological capabilities. And so we turn to you, our masterful hackers, to apply IoT, advanced machine learning and other state-of-the-art technologies to localize and decrypt all the artifact’s signals. The world as we know it may be at an end. Every minute counts."

Technologies: IoT (Python), Machine Learning, UI5 (JavaScript)

Prior Knowledge: A little bit of Javascript and lots of interest in SAP technology
