Use the workshops to get helpful insights into AI (especially GPT-3) as well as how business modeling works. Join business talks and get inspired by entrepreneurs or industry experts. The workshops and business talks will also happen in the evening and the exact dates will follow.
You have 48 hours to develop a proof of concept with your team in order to provide the following deliverables at the end of the Makeathon:
After pitching your results on Sunday afternoon, a jury of experts will select the winning teams for each track. Fantastic prizes are waiting for you!
The main idea of our Makeathon is to develop a GPT-3 based solution with a cross-functional team. The solutions you will be working on have to fit into one of four tracks: Legal Tech, Healthcare, Marketing, or Knowledge Management. Within these tracks, you can either join a challenge pitched by one of our industry partners or a participant. If you have an awesome idea yourself make sure to pitch it, so you can convince others to join you in building a viable business concept.
The whole concept of our Makeathon is to build upon the idea of cross-functional teams. Therefore, we are looking forward to all kinds of skill sets relevant for our Makeathon (see question "What if I already have a team?"). AI will impact every domain. Yours too. Join and find out how!
A Makeathon is a fun event that brings together like-minded people from different backgrounds to collaborate and rapidly build new innovative products.
No, you don’t need a team. A team-finding event will take place at the beginning of April where you can form your cross-functional team which can consist of up to 5 people.
In order to fulfil the deliverables "Business Model Canvas" and "first prototype with GPT-3 usage", your team should cover tech, AI, and business skills as well as domain knowledge for your corresponding track (see application formula). As long as this is fulfilled and your team has a max. of 5 people, you can work with whoever you would like. Therefore it will not matter if you already have a team before the start of the event.
Note: Of course, one person can have more than one skill or domain knowledge, for example, two participants could already fulfil the four requirements (tech, AI, and business skill and domain knowledge).
We will provide a jury of experts who will examine your solutions and evaluate them fairly.

Basically, everyone around the world. However, after the application deadline, a selection process will follow since we only have limited access to GPT-3.
The event will take place online. Apart from your laptop, your daily supplies and some sleep, you don't need anything.
This year the event will take place online. But rest assured, we have planned the day to nonetheless be unforgettable. So it will be a unique opportunity to get to know other students, which is quite hard in times of Corona.
Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The main event will take on the weekend from 16th to 18th of April. Here you use the 48 hours to the best of your ability to develop your innovative idea together with your teammates. The workshops, business talks, challenge pitches, and the team finding event will be very casual and happen during the evenings beforehand. The exact dates for these events will be announced at the beginning of April via email.
