AI Hack Tunisia 2022

What is the AI Hack?

AI ​​Hack Tunisia is a hackathon on AI and Machine Learning hosted by InstaDeep and Google. It is open to developers of all profiles as well as tech entrepreneurs, researchers, students, PhD holders, and startups to create innovative ideas and solve real challenges using Artificial Intelligence.

The first edition of the event, AI ​​Hack Tunisia 2019 was one of the biggest Hackathons in Africa with more than 1000 participants from Africa and the Middle East that were mentored by internationally recognized experts of the field.

After a two-year break, AI ​​Hack Tunisia 2022 will take place over 3 days from the 29th to the 31st of August 2022 at Radès -Omnisport Arena.

It will welcome participants from the whole African continent and the Middle east.

The AI Hack Tunisia 2022 will be a double hackathon: the first part will be an individual Machine Learning Challenge, and the second part will be a group (or as we like to say, startup) competition focused on a specific technology (that will be announced a few days before the event).

So gather up your team! With mentors, judges and competitors from all over the world, it’s going to be a blast!

Applications for the event will be open shortly, but Deep Learning Indaba participants are automatically accepted to take part in this year’s hackathon.
