We have already started collecting applications for participation in our hackathon, which we are conducting in conjunction with Microsoft and the Internet Initiatives Development Fund (IIDF). Main areas: artificial intelligence, bots and machine learning. If you want to earn 150 thousand rubles for the weekend - welcome under the cut!
What ideas are interesting to us?
M.Video sells electronics, and our customers master new technologies with amazing speed. Therefore, we as a business can not stay away from innovation. We already use blockchain in settlements with suppliers, big data in planning logistics and stock, mobile solutions for sellers. The next step is to search for new tools for retail development. We chose the hackathon format for the first time and hope to find good ideas and reliable partners.
What interests us above all? There are
, and both relate to improving communication with customers.
Topic 1. Site aggregator
We are interested in artificial intelligence solutions that will analyze textual feedback from customers and form reliable product ratings based on them.
Theme 2. Bot-consultant for the selection of goods in the application for sellers
We are looking for a solution of artificial intelligence and machine learning, which will make the communication between sellers and buyers more targeted and personalized, and will enable us to offer buyers the most suitable product for them.
We know that many people participate in hackathons not for prizes, but there will definitely be prizes. Winners in special nominations will receive Xbox One S game consoles from the hackathon partner. And the best team will get the main prize - 150,000 rubles.
And one more thing: we are conducting a hackathon because we want to find really cool solutions for the selection of goods and the aggregation of reviews on our website. And if someone offers such solutions, it is likely to get a development contract with M.Video.
