[ARP – Mobile application for managers with biometric verification]
Once using IT tools for effective management it is necessary to provide the user with freedom of choice of time and place of the tool usage. The task is to create a functional application for managers, improving the decision-making process. The idea of our task is to provide secure and fully mobile workflow access without the need to set up a VPN.
In today’s world threats in cyberspace can cause unimaginable damage, therefore the application should have an advanced biometric verification module using artificial intelligence (fingerprint, face recognition). This module’s function would be to authenticate the user, allow them to use the app no matter what device they currently use, upload and update certificates.
The application should also include an AI module that analyzes the content of the question inputted by the user and creates possible answers on its basis, without the need to enter them manually. Then the answers should be collected and aggregated. The user should have access to the desktop, where he will be able to check current and historical processes.
The last element of the application is the creation of a bot, consisting of automated downloading and transfer of data from and to source systems.

[EXATEL – Data categorizing software]
Amount of available data increases every day. Finding useful information – information we can work with – is possible, but quite tedious and difficult without spending lots of resources.
Can you write the software which, given a lot of uncategorized data (say – tweets, blog posts, application logs, pcaps), groups them by the similarity of the discussed topic?
The goal is that certain groups can be ignored as uninteresting and other browsed manually. Could you score and sort the information in a useful way?
If you’ve considered trying your skills with unsupervised machine learning, this challenge is for you!
