IBC 2016: Hack the Future at This Year’s Avid-Sponsored IBC Hackfest

By in Topics

36 hours. Over 100 hackers from around the world. A creative playground where anything is possible. IBC Hackfest brings together the brightest minds to define how emergent technologies will shape the future of our society. At this year’s Hackfest, developers and hackers will compete to show us answers to the question:

What will sports, entertainment, and education look like in years to come?

We’ll be looking at how “smart cities,” virtual reality, and artificial intelligence are just a few hacks away from changing our lives. How does the rise of “VR” and “AI” change our classrooms? How will we watch—and participate—in football games? In the future, how will we find and share our favorite content?

The winners who show us the coolest solutions will walk away with over €5,000 in cash and other prizes! That’s a pretty awesome deal. So…

Do you have what it takes to code your way into the future? Come and hack. Or watch and learn.

IBC Hackfest 2016 takes place Saturday, September 10, and Sunday, September 11 in the Diamond Lounge.
