HACKATUNE IN

So no one told you it was gonna be this way, đź‘Ź
A new Textract edition is proudly underway!
Let’s meet: 8th of December on a Saturday,
24 hour ride for you to plug and play.

Assemble your crew, make sure you come prepared,
You have to show them that you’re really not scared.
You’ll tackle 99 problems, but datasets ain’t one,
We know developers don’t just wanna have fun.

To help you figure out exactly what this means,
It involves prediction, song lyrics and algorithms.
Whatever happens, don’t leave it all to chance,
Find creative ways to address this circumstance.

Let the drums roll, everything’s gonna be alright!
At midnight get up! Stand up! Don’t give up the fight!
If you hit a bump, you know the show must go on!
The coolest ideas may win this hackathon!

You may say we are dreamers, but we’re not the only ones,
Of course, a Machine Learning competition is not for everyone,
But if we’re alike from many points of view
All we want for Textract is you!
