As newer technologies disrupt, displace and reshape economies, 'the next big thing' emerging as the hotbed of innovation are the frontier technologies. While what these encompass are ever evolving, today we associate frontier technologies with Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, and an intersection of the above.The first quarter of 2016 has seen a 44% increase in funding of frontier technology startups.

At HackGSF, our goal is to encourage developers to build products that employ one or more of these frontier technologies. A crucial aspect of working with these technologies is the availability of large amounts of data. To this cause, we will provide the developers with key resources such as data and frameworks to successfully implement frontier technologies into their projects. The hackathon will be witness to talks and workshops curated by experts in these fields.

We look forward to seeing developers innovate at the intersection of many frontier technologies and industry verticals such as FinTech, Consumer, Health & Food, Education, and SaaS.

Building a sustainable and impactful product at the intersection of two or more frontier technologies and industry verticals mentioned below in the hackathon will be viewed positively by the judges.

Financial Technology

Innovation in financial services have just begun to come through, but this field is different than others. The challenge is not only in providing newer and more innovative services that either benefits a customer or helps investors and banker make better decisions. The challenge is also in securing these systems from the ever growing numbers of vulnerabilities and from the malicious intent of wrong doers. If you can build new and innovative financial solutions, while building a cyber fort knox, then Fintech needs you.

Health & Food

There used to be a time where the common cold could cause an epidemic. And today, we’ve eradicated malaria and are on the path to finding cures to cancer and AIDS. While direct medical sciences have contributed to most of its advancements, recent years have seen computer sciences compliment it very well. Be it in aggregating services of every doctor in a locality, or a simple application with quick remedies for ailments - the tech party has landed in the healthcare space. Think of how technology can compliment the current healthcare infrastructure.
