Challenges and Winning Teams

CITIC Challenge A – IoT and O2O based universal big data solution

Background:The CITIC Alliance’s offline merchants like McDonald’s and CITIC Bookstore hope to  adapt e-commerce’s passenger flow monitor in aspects like the history, the quality, the analytics and so on. To help businesses optimize operations, reduce costs, and improve the user experience, the aim is to design and develop a set of universal big data services based on IoT and O2O to collect offline traffic data, daily passenger flow, return customers, new customers, etc, and to predict future passenger flow. At the same time, the services will integrate the online data, to provide the persona analytics.。

CITIC Challenge B – Map-based CITIC service

Background:From online to offline, the CITIC Alliance includes member companies in various fields such as banking (banking, insurance, securities), culture (bookstore), catering (McDonald’s), travel (tourism, airport) and e-commerce (shopping mall),  which share and trust information through blockchain technology. The task is to develop a social or game app based on any map service in the market to let users immerse into certain scenario in which all the merchants’ service and benefits are connected by blockchain technology. The goal is to let users be willing to take time for the experience.。

BMW Challenge – Intermodal Transportation Planner

Background:In modern urban life, the customer wants to find a most suitable transportation combination while facing many choices. Meanwhile, the transportation will be effected by various external factors, and different customer has his/her own preference when makes a decision, to satisfy such needs, an intermodal transportation planner should be provided based on extremal factors and internal preference with the best match.

For the first time this year, the TechCrunch hackathon in China has created a division, especially for talented youths: 8-16-year-olds.

Workshops from Le Wagon, Future City, TinkerCAD and First Code Academy provided the basic skills needed and the young hackers had 4 hours on Sunday to come up with solutions to make the world a better place.

9 teams presented their solutions to their peers and the adult hackathon participants, as well as the general public. And we were impressed! From devices that help arthritis patients, to solutions that help reduce pollution, there was no shortage of creative ideas.

Congratulations to 灰不拉拉拉 (Huibulalala is her pseudonym), who was the overall winner of the teen hackathon division!
