Hackathon will be held within AI MARATHON. The marathon will combine various competitions, championships and events around artificial intelligence, and thousands of students from all over the country will participate in it.
The prize fund of the marathon will be constantly growing — within its framework, the winning participants will receive investments from existing partner technology companies. In total, within the framework of the hackathon, the prize fund is 20,000 GEL, which will be distributed among 3 winners.
Students can participate in the AI Hackathon as a team. The number of students in the team is determined from 2 to 4 participants.
