The Troitsk Tro.Pro team took first place in the international data hackathon for solving global social problems. The team includes active participants of Fablab (part of the TechnoSpark group of companies of the FIOP Rusnano investment network) and TechnoSpark Project School graduates.
In our Project School, teenagers interested in the latest technology learned to create their first tech startups. For more than two years, they were improving engineering skills, studying electrical engineering and programming, working with composite materials, attending workshops on 3D modeling and 3D printing technology, and mastering various approaches in the new energy industry.
The team of TechnoSpark Project School graduates won the contest in solutions to create an information system with its functions including the preparation of a text summary based on audio/video data. Now the winners will have to drill the hypotheses with experts. We wish our graduates success in their struggle for the 5.5 million rubles prize fund of the second stage of the contest.
In September-October, as part of the World AI&Data Challenge, a Solutions Workshop will be held, where the best ideas will be selected and presented to Russian and international experts and to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees – Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Chernyshenko.
The hackathon was held with the support of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, Boiling Point – MGUTU named after K. G. Razumovsky and Boiling Point – Troitsk. The best developed solutions will be implemented throughout Russia and presented for replication in other countries.
