Hackathon AI JAM was held for BTU students in partnership with Exadel Georgia and Quantori Georgia. The prize fund of the event was 5000 GEL.
As part of the competition, students, with the help of artificial intelligence, created task-solving mechanisms that not only effectively identify and analyze cyber threats, but also provide practical approaches to mitigate threats.
Participation in the AI JAM was open to BTU students either as a group or individually.
Within the framework of the competition, the jury identified 2 winners. GeoGuard, who took the first place, received a reward of 3,000 GEL, and BitBane, who took the second place – 2,000 GEL.
“The competition clearly revealed the very interesting ideas and broad possibilities of the participants in the field of artificial intelligence and cyber security, which makes me very happy. All participants were given the opportunity to create an interesting platform to present innovative solutions, which once again confirms the role of artificial intelligence in strengthening cyber security. The competition connected me with industry experts and potential future team members. This victory and the competition in general not only proved the importance of practical application of theoretical knowledge, but also made a significant contribution to current academic activities, broadening perspectives, in the field of artificial intelligence and cyber security,” said Geoguard team member Luca Baclaga.
