Confides to success

AI 4 Science hackathon



AI4Science (or artificial intelligence for science) is an initiative first proposed at Caltech that aims to bring together AI researchers with experts from other disciplines to push modern AI tools into every area of science and engineering.
DeepVerse, together with Bota Bio, Chemical.AI, and Foreseen Biotechnology jointly organize the first nationwide AI4Science Hackathon for students and researchers, providing a cross-disciplinary platform to foster innovations, where you can present your ideas and meet other brilliant minds.

A three-week online hackathon

We aim to support students and faculties on early stage research that leverages machine learning technologies to solve real world problems, and promote cross-disciplinary collaboration across academia, industry, and the public sector.

Have a research or science problem that is addressable by AI?

The AI 4 Science hackathon will be an opportunity to pitch your ideas and you will get:
  - One-to-one session with PhDs/Researchers from globally renowned universities (Cambridge, MIT, etc.)
  - Engaging panel discussions
  - Co-working space*
*The co-working space will be arranged later at DeepVerse's Shanghai office or Nest.Bio Lab's Shanghai/Beijing office when it is safe to do so.

The top teams will be rewarded:

Grand prize $8,000

one team

First Prize $3,000

five team

Second Prize $1,500

six teams

Third Prize $750

seven teams

Awards $150
