About this event
Brainathon is a Brain-Computer Interface Hackathon that brings together developers, technologists, engineers, students, artists, and scientists in teams of 5 participants. The teams have over 24 hours to cram and build solutions that they can present. 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.
Brainathon is organised by Neuro Device, Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC), Warsaw Medical University and g.tec neurotechnology GmbH.
Prize: 15.000 Polish zloty.
