Hack-A-Superpower is two-day hackathon organized by DevCon, in collaboration with NexCon 3 and IBM. High school and college students will get a chance to build an “super app” for social good – an opportunity to be a superhero using their coding skills. The hackathon theme will be sci-fi in nature but the solution will help address real-world challenges.
Participants will use Bluemix, IBM’s open-standards, cloud-based platform for building, managing, and running apps of all types, such as web, mobile, big data, and smart devices. The best thing about Bluemix is Watson, IBM’s famed artificially intelligent computer which can be operated using natural language. The computer has even beaten humans in a popular quiz shoe, Jeopardy. Watson is so powerful, it is now being used in cancer treatment, law, finance, weather prediction, and many others.
