Ignition Hacks 2021 is a virtual hackathon supported by iAscend, designed to introduce participants to artificial intelligence and its various applications through a series of workshops and seminars featuring guest speakers.

 

Ignition Hacks 2021 will be a three day hackathon that focuses on hands-on applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning through a variety of workshops, including an introduction to TensorFlow, Git, and Python. Furthermore, we plan to have guest speakers give talks on emerging technologies and research in their field. We are striving to introduce more than 600 participants to the world of machine learning, while also aiming to make ground in 25 countries.
