TASKS

When joining HackYeah you can deal with any task you want. This might seem a little hard, but it gives you the opportunity to work on the idea in your area of expertise.

You can work on one or multiple tasks and you can be a member of one or several teams at once!

What’s more, you do not need to decide what task you’re working on before the hackathon.

There are two kinds of tasks: MAIN and PARTNERS TASKS.

MAIN TASKS

Main tasks consist of three OPEN categories, which means you only get the topic and it’s totally up to you in which direction you’ll develop your project. We don’t give any guidelines or one particular technology, however, there will be mentors for each of those categories who can help you with some ideas.

The open categories for 2019 are:

  1. COMMUNICATION
  2. ENVIRONMENT
  3. SECURITY

We do not ask for the rights to the solutions from Main Tasks.

PARTNERS TASKS

The HackYeah Partners always prepare various special tasks based on their current needs – whether open or one-solution tasks. Working on them is a superb opportunity for you and a huge step in your career.

[PKN Orlen - Internal employee communication using a chatbot.]

In a large enterprise employees often look for specific information in various categories. Some of that information is publicly available and can be found e.g. on the Intranet, while some of it require contact with particular employees. Such situations relate to e.g. information from the HR area on the person concerned. In addition to providing access to data available in the HR systems, there is also a need to provide the employee with additional explanation which is done by particular HR employees. The aim of the task is to propose a chatbot solution which would support the HR employees in providing additional information, i.a. based on a defined and constantly developed database of questions, continuous self-learning of the chatbot, search of available data and documents, etc. In addition to answering the questions, chatbot’s activities should also include pointing to particular locations on the network, where the employee can find the information of their interest, as well as providing with specific data files generated exclusively for them. The solution should be available on computers and smartphones. More details to follow soon.

[PKN Orlen - IT Security – workstation & OT server hardening verification (task 1) or assessing the level of cybersecurity (task 2) – choose one.]

Task 1

The solution should collect data about automation server and  workstation configuration, compare the collected configuration with the predefined model configuration and on this basis prepare a report. Data collection (i.a. audit policies, users, network interfaces, disk space, OS patches, AV, installed applications, launched websites) should be initiated manually and the results should be available in a legible form, e.g. in tabular form. The model configuration should be entered into the solution manually and stored in it under unique names. The solution must enable comparison of the collected configuration with the predefined model configuration and generate the report in a clear form. If the part relating to the model configuration is not provided, the report should contain the appropriate information. More details to follow soon.

Task 2

The solution should generate a report concerning the level of cybersecurity based on the information provided, broken down by particular areas e.g. network area, workstation and server area, procedural area, automation application area. The solution should enable saving entered answers and saving reports along with the information about who and when entered the answer / generated the report.

Assessing the level of cybersecurity should be based on a developed methodology, whose parameters should be configurable in the solution. More details to follow soon.

[BOSCH - We move, you win]

The algorithm and implementation of the adjustment of the servo drives position using real time image processing so called optical feedback.

The goal of the task is to use the available tools and libraries for image processing and Bosch Rexroth servo drive control for precise positioning of the shaft at a given position using the real time camera image.
In order to recognize the image frames, their unblurring, and at the same time accurately determine the position of the servo drive, a number of different techniques can be used, among others opencv or artificial neural network.

[Totalizator Sportowy - Enter the world of entertainment]

Totalizator Sportowy – the owner of the LOTTO brand invites you to design a new interactive tool. The world of lotteries absorbs more and more solutions from the area of new technologies. It is important to achieve synergy between many communication channels and to build multidimensional tools to broaden the horizons of entertainment.

[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!

MENTORS

Each year we invite specialists from various fields who are ready to help you. You can find them in the Mentors Village where they will be happy to inspire you and answer any questions you might have.


 

There are two types of mentors:

 

  • CATEGORY MENTORS

They are mostly NGOs whose area of expertise is one of the 3 main categories of the Hackathon (Communication, Environment, and Security).

They can advise the teams if their idea is relevant for the specific topic, suggest the direction of developing the idea or simply come up with the solution the team could work on.

  • CONTENT MENTORS

These mentors take care of the more technical part of the project development. They are mostly individuals, with specific knowledge.

They can advise if the team has some issues with UX, does not know how to solve some trouble while programming, has no idea how to present on the stage or has any other technical problems while hacking!


 

If you would like to become a mentor go ahead and contact Paulina, our head of mentoring. You can reach her by an email paulina.makarewicz@hackyeah.pl or call this number +48 506 689 550.
