Since 2015, at the end of each year, a committee of Sparktech Staff and Machine Learning community members get together for Textract. This year, teams are expected to submit their application on the official website of the competition by December 4, as participants will be officially announced on December 5.
Each edition of this hackathon features a unique theme. This year, contestants will have the chance to tap into the many facets of truthology, as Textract will morph into a fakextract experience. The event will follow a Kaggle InClass competition format.
The 1500$ competition will take place on Saturday, December 7, inside the Sparktech Office, the same location as last year.
We are aiming for a maximum of 16 teams of 2-4 members. Our ML team is always eager to meet with students who take the time to participate and try out different algorithms as they create their own outcome throughout this 24 hour journey. This is why the final round of compelling presentations becomes essential in wrapping up the entire experience.
Make sure you don’t miss the fourth ML Hackathon powered by Sparktech, coming up this December!
