Junior Competition

Be a Part of the World’s Largest Brain Hackathon!


What’s a Hackathon? Hackathons are brainstorming and collaborative marathons designed to rapidly produce working prototypes. Conventional hackathons typically bring developers and technologists together over 24, 36, 48 or more hours to cram and build solutions that they can present.

Who Can Participate? Anyone! Both SMC2016 attendees and non-SMC2016 attendees with interests in BMI, BCI, robotics, AR, VR, machine learning, sensors, human-machine interface systems, control, signal processing, big data, haptics, rehabilitation, and similar areas. You do not have to be a BMI expert to participate on a team! Interdisciplinary teams with a combination of BMI and non-BMI skills are often successful in building solutions and producing working prototypes.

Why do a Brain Hackathon? The brain hackathon provides an environment for innovation and entrepreneurship. By putting creative minds from multiple disciplines together for a short period of time, we have the opportunity to discover and uncover possibilities for using BCI-related hardware and software not readily thought of. Hacks and innovation developed from hackathons have great potential for commercialization.
