Online marketplace Snapdeal Wednesday announced an ‘AI Hackathon’ aimed at developing solutions based on the new-age technology that can help address challenges related to the e-commerce sector.
This competition challenges participants to solve interesting problems around computer vision and natural language processing. The winner will be selected based on his/her ability to solve the real world business problems.
Some of the key issues that could be taken include the ability to personalise search results to suit individual customer’s requirements and minimisation of fraud on e-commerce platforms.
As part of the 30-day competition, which begins September 10, the winner would have to beat the algorithm built by the internal team at Snapdeal as well as that built by other contestants.
Apart from a cash prize, the winner will also have an opportunity to join Snapdeal’s AI team.
