Connected Devices & Chatbots Hackathon

Date: June 9-10
Location: Students Culture Hall
Lucian Blaga Square, no. 1-3

Event info


If you have an appetite for innovative technologies and a sparkle in your eye when it comes to challenges, we have prepared for you an intense 24-hour hackathon focused on connected devices & chatbots. The best projects come out as a result of fair competitiveness and that’s one aspect you’ll definitely find here. The latest devices and other developers as eager as you to build awesome stuff await for you. Just bring your idea and it will have the best surroundings to fall into place.

Last year, some of the gadgets we provided for our Connected Devices Hackathon have been: DJI, Oculus, Parrot, Amazon Echo, Microsoft Hololens and Onyx Beacon. These helped the participants in finding their energy and inspiration for creating awesome projects. Estimating  how efficient a solar power panel would be if installed, short training lessons on CPR, using The EyeTribe Tracker for introducing your pin code into the ATM and reinventing the way code is written for IoT devices are now possible due to Techsylvania’s hackathon.

The top three projects will be rewarded with free VIP conference passes and consistent prizes that we’ll announce soon.

Popular chatbots you can use during the hackathon


Telegram

Has third-party applications that run inside the app. Users can interact with bots by sending them messages, commands and inline requests. They can control the bots using HTTPS requests to the Telegram’s bot API.

Slack

Bot users are similar to their human counterparts. They can be mentioned, post messages and upload files, but are programmatically controlled via a bot user token. There are two kinds of Slack bot users: custom bots and app bots.

Messenger

In Facebook Messenger bots can be implemented to raise awareness, acquire new customers, enable transactions, provide support or just for amusement. They can be created in 10 minutes using Node.js.

Snips

Snips helps developers integrate an AI assistant that can interact with users by voice or text and understand complex queries, all while running locally on device.
