EIT Digital's DeepHack: Smart Industry - Your chance to show off your Industry 4.0 AI solution


Creative minds and thought leaders from both sides of the Atlantic can now join a series of three Transatlantic AI Hackathons organised by EIT Digital and the German American Business Association (GABA).

Application deadline 2 April 2023, 23:59 CET

The objective of the Transatlantic AI Hackathon Series is the cross development of AI-based solutions, addressing specific business, societal, environmental, and economic challenges. The Smart Industry - Transforming manufacturing with Edge Computing and Cloud Data Integration deephack invites participants to create solutions that leverage the capabilities of AI-enabled cameras and IoT devices to optimise processes and improve decision-making in manufacturing, logistics, and other Industry 4.0 sectors.

Solutions should use Edge AI (the technique of processing AI algorithms on a hardware device locally) for IoT, leveraging the processing power and data storage capabilities of these devices to provide actionable insights. Potential solution domains include predicting maintenance needs, identifying bottlenecks and defects in a production line, enhancing security and safety in industrial environments by preventing collisions between workers and machines in an industrial environment, and other smart manufacturing problems that can be addressed by utilising Edge AI for IoT.


  • A USD 10 000 prize pool - to be distributed among winners
  • An OAK-D-Lite Spatial AI Camera from Luxonis for each participant
