This weekend during the International Conference on Systems, Man & Cybernetics in Banff, Alberta Smartstones will be sponsoring a $1000 prize for the BR41N.IO Hackathon Series.
A little about the Hackathon itself from our friends over at BR41N.IO
"Brain Hackathons are brainstorming and collaborative marathons designed to rapidly produce working prototypes. At IEEE SMC, brain hackathons bring developers, technologists, engineers, students, artists, and scientists together in teams of 5 participants each over 2 days to cram and build solutions that they can present. Hence, the Brain Hackathon provides an environment for innovation and entrepreneurship. By putting creative minds from multiple disciplines together for a short period of time, we have the opportunity to discover and uncover possibilities for using BCI-related hardware and software not readily thought of. Hacks and innovation developed from Brain Hackathons have great potential for commercialization. Finally, Brain Hackathons are also designed to be a learning experience for everyone."
And the best part? You don't even have to be in Banff to participate! You can jump into the Hackathon from the comfort of your home. So head over to BR41N.IO to see how you can join a team and win some amazing prizes listed below!
