Create the next-generation face reading app at Sightcorp F.A.C.E. Hackathon!

Developers and Creatives,

We have some exciting news to share with you: Sightcorp will be running a free hackathon weekend on 20-21 September here in Amsterdam. If you have a great app idea and you’re looking for a challenge, come and join us for 32 hours of hacking and fun!

Don’t miss out on the chance to build something awesome using our Face Analysis Technologies, show your talent to a highly-qualified panel of judges and be rewarded for that.

The purpose of the F.A.C.E. Hackathon is to create and submit an app prototype using the Face Analysis Cloud Engine API from Sightcorp, or one of our software development kits InSight and CrowdSight.

Participants can build a desktop, mobile or web-based application addressed to their field of interest: gaming, user experience, market research, advertising, narrowcasting, behavioral research and more. Our judges panel will distinguish the three most creative, innovative and useful apps, and which make the best use of the Sightcorp technologies.

Sightcorp will provide some cool gadgets which participants can use to build their app: Google Glasses, Kinects, AR Droids, odroids, infrared cameras.

All students, freelancers, developers, professionals and other creative people are invited to join the hackaton and build the next-generation app which can help to better understand people’s emotional behavior, profile and interest.
Participants can subscribe as an individual or as a team of up to 5 members. Also, company teams can join the event, as long as the company size is not bigger than 50 employees.

We couldn’t be more excited with the opportunity to welcome talented and creative minds in our first hackathon edition, and to see what will be the final outcome!

All this will be possible thanks to our dedicated sponsors: University of Amsterdam, A LabAppsterdam and ACE Venture Lab.

Subscriptions are open starting today and they will be running until September 15th. So mark your agenda for the event, team up and spread the word!

 

When: 20-21 September

Where: A-Lab, Amsterdam
