## Overview

AI is the science of making machines think and act like humans. The main idea of AI is to advance systems that exceed or at least equal human intelligence. The quest of reducing human error has resulted in the rise of artificially intelligent machines.

It has already started to seep into our daily lives in ways we could not have foreseen a hundred years ago. AI is now in our pockets, on our computers, and is very soon coming to a variety of technologies and devices used daily.

It has been used in a variety of fields including scientific discovery, robot control, remote sensing, stock trading, medical diagnosis, law, etc.

The Hackathon aims to bring together and inspire AI enthusiasts to build ingenious solutions.

The hackathon will be conducted in 3 phases.

Phase 1: Idea Submission

Phase 2: 22 hour-offline hackathons to be held across 3 zones where you have to come and build your solution

Phase 3: 8-10 hours offline hackathon at Bangalore to improve your solution under mentorship
