About Virtual Hackathon
The E&E Productivity Nexus (EEPN) established under Malaysia Productivity Corporation (MPC) has the charter of enhancing the competitiveness of our E&E industry; particularly in increasing the productivity, capability and competency of the E&E sub-sector. One of the key focus areas is to create value towards the Industry 4.0 ecosystem.
One of EEPN I4.0 initiatives is to organize I4.0 hackathons, which will feature an Artificial intelligence (AI) based machine vision system. A two-day virtual hackathon aims for participants to develop affordable AI-based machine vision Proof of Concepts (POCs) solutions, for potential adoption by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
The Hackathon hardware and software suite is based on Intel OpenVINO™ toolkit, running off any computers (minimum requirements are stated in the InforPack document). MPC would like to invite interested parties to participate as hackathon I4.0 Champions. The hackathon will be organized via online and to be held on 17-18 October 2020.
The theme for the EEPN I4.0 VIRTUAL HACKATHON 2020 will be the “Crafting The Future of AI Experience”. The ideas and solutions to be developed should include AI technologies.
The participation and other stakeholders are encouraged to be included as part of the proposed solutions and stakeholders. Some of the focus areas to be looked into are Smart Manufacturing, Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Track-and-Trace.
There is a pre-briefing session and training workshop on 14th of September 2020.
