Event description
The goal of this hackathon is to develop software that can analyze user acceptance of apps or web applications.

About this Event

We want to use a weekend together to develop MVPs that rise to this challenge – preferably by using artificial intelligence. After 48 hours, the goal is to provide functional software that can make qualitative assessments of user experience.

Registration

Registration is free. Please use our Eventbrite page for application.

Story

User experience is the driving factor for successful digital applications. A good user experience is not a coincidence, but a calculated procedure to achieve maximum user acceptance. This means that good user experience is measurable and can be evaluated by algorithms.

But the experience that a customer has with a company is not limited to just one channel. Good customer experience means that the user experience is the same across all channels: in user interface design, in wordings, and in the overall perception of the brand. Here too, there is the possibility of measuring and evaluating quality by machine.

Machine learning and data science accelerate the development of digital products everywhere and often deliver more reliable results than human research. Let's find out how we can measure the user experience of an application and what we can achieve when we combine this analysis with artificial intelligence.
