On August 5-10, Napoleon IT together with ITMO University is running GEEKS & FREAKS HACKATHON as part of the joint project AI Talent Hub. At the hackathon, participants will generate techno music using neural networks and then present their tracks at a music festival. The hackathon is supported by Yandex Cloud.
GEEKS & FREAKS HACKATHON aims to bring together aspiring data scientists and subculture members to produce fresh and truly unique content. Each team will consist of four data scientists and a sound producer. Together, they will use neural networks to create a set of tracks (not less than 5-minute long) for the festival.
The hackathon will run both online and offline. Winners will be announced at Meridian – a city festival of electronic music and visual art that will take place on August 13 in Chelyabinsk, Russia.
