2nd Place - HackingGood 2017

Cisco Toronto Innovation Centre

November 2017

In partnership with FuturFund and Cisco, this hackathon aimed to enhance education for young people around the world.

Our group ideated, wireframed and pitched Spotlight, a high-fidelity prototype that faciliates learning in a non-conventional way by connecting individuals with experienced mentors to learn more about possible career paths. Spotlight would use an AI assistant in combination with NLP to develop a special profile for deeper connections based on each individual.

Adobe XD was key in bringing Spotlight to life.

4th Place - Genesys Toronto Hackathon 2017

George Brown College, St. James Campus

October 2017

Hosted by Genesys and George Brown College, this was the second hackathon designed to enhance PureCloud beyond what it already offers.

Our team ideated, developed and pitched Cloud 9, a Google Chrome extension designed to translate incoming and outgoing chat messages such that a call center agent who isn't familiar with a customers spoken language could read and respond in a language familiar to the themselves.

Cloud 9 was constructed with HTML, jQuery, Node.js, Express.js and IBM Watson with one serving of an all-nighter.

RBC NGI Hackathon 2017

RBC Water Park Place

September 2017

The theme of this years hackathon was to develop a new and innovative way to recruit top tech talent.

Our team, Team Inner Source, developed and pitched Inner Source, a platform in which business units could pose projects in an open-source setting to be completed by individuals. Upon completion, individuals would "own their contribution", allowing them and their acquired skillset to be identified in a streamlined hiring pipeline.

Inner Source was built with HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Circular Design Challenge Hackathon Toronto 2017

Bitmaker Labs

July 2017

Hosted by OpenIDEO, this was first of many events bringing together bright minds to brainstorm, ideate and prototype how we might get products to people without generating plastic waste!

Our team devised and pitched a PoC app called "Recyclift". Recyclift allows users to request "Recyclifters" (equipped with sponsored backpacks) to pickup their waste/recyclables. In exchange, revenue from these sponsorships would then be used to provide incentives for these individuals in addition to points being awarded for their local community leaderboard.

GMhackAI 2017

Ryerson University, Sandbox by DMZ

June 2017

In partnership with the DMZ, Ryerson Futures and General Motors, this was the first-ever GM Hackathon event in Toronto! We worked on solutions to enable AI powered assistants to aid the way we work, move and play in an ever-growing autonomous age.

Our team developed and pitched a PoC AI assistant named "Rosie" which enabled the real-time assessment of a driver’s physical and mental state by utilizing metrics and past medical history from both wearable devices and driver speech in order to proactively guard against occurrences such as Road Rage.

Rosie was built using General Motor’s Next Generation Infotainment (NGI) toolkit with future consideration of using Reciptiviti, an API that enabled AI platforms to determine human emotions.

3rd Place - OSCE Days Hackathon Toronto 2017

University of Toronto, St. George Campus
