About this event

Hackathon HACK|BAY 2022 image


Let's come together again!

This May we invite all hackers, engineers and business brains to come together and hack it away with us for the sixth time!

After two years of an online-only HACK|BAY, we can't wait to see all of your lovely faces again at Z-Bau in Nuremberg!

However, those who can't make it there in person can participate online and work on the challenges remotely.

We are so looking forward to come together as a community and to celebrate your creative ideas and solutions.

When:  May 30 - 31

*Please note that the event language will be English. 

How to participate on-site?

Get an on-site ticket and work on-site on a challenge.

Just drop by and bring your laptop and any other tools you may need (e.g. charger, mouse, USB drive, adapter).

Besides that, you are provided with everything you need (think drinks, food, mentoring, and, of course, a great community) to get the full HACK|BAY experience.

You can even spend the night on-site so that nothing stands in the way of developing your solution!

(Some beds are available on-site. So all you have to do is pack your pajamas, toothrush & co. Please let us know in advance via events@zollhof.de, if you would like to stay overnight and we will reserve a sleeping spot for you).

How does it work online?

If you can't make it to Nuremberg, it is possible to participate online (Discord & Livestream of the Welcoming).

ZOLLHOF and mentors are also available in case you participate online, but you master the organization yourself (team, ideation, work mode) and work largely independently on a challenge.

Only for the Grand Finale on May 31 the two worlds - on-site and online - come together.

Participation Information

Please make sure you choose the right ticket: with an on-site ticket, you can participate in the event on-site in Nuremberg at Z-Bau.

With an online ticket, participation is only possible online via Discord & Co.

Depending on your choosen ticket, you will receive all information about participation in advance by e-mail.

Please ensure to adjust your settings in your Eventbrite account so that you can receive e-mails from us.

Challenges  & Mentoring

There are some exciting challenges waiting for you! Work in a team on one of the callenges, compete with others and earn amazing prizes for your outstanding results.

Experts are at your side and accompany you through the event with mentoring whenever it's needed so you never walk alone, even if it's your first hackathon experience.


Level up your idea in a robotics ecosystem!

Now it’s your time to shine – and build. Collaborate on a robotics platform supplied by Siemens, consider possible applications within business areas like e.g. sensors, localization, autonomous navigation, logistics or healthcare, and explore the possibilities of an open playground where you can jump directly to coding your own ideas or even provide a base for others!

Your challenge is setting up a mobile robot (https://www.eduart-robotik.com/) by connecting partial solutions comparable to apps on your smartphone. Imagine if GPS navigation was implemented, you could directly build on that and make your dream of, let’s say, autonomous pizza delivery a reality!

This kind of modular software engineering is being used more and more in industry - to have a blueprint ready whenever you want to realize an idea with mobile robotics.

Implement your use case with code blocks as partial solutions using the open-source framework ROS2. If you kept an eye on the compatibility of the whole system that would be the icing on the cake. Every additional functionality of a robot should work independently and is not supposed to conflict with its previous ones.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just focus on your awesome AI-based detection algorithm of bad memes in the wild? Without having to control parameters of your mobile robotics platform at the same time, because an industrial ecosystem with handy solutions already existed?

Time to hear about your ingenious brainchild!

2. GfK 

Who am I? - Become a real online profiler!

Can you predict socio-demographic profiles using best-in-class data science, natural language processing and web scraping? Your solution could make cookies redundant - while respecting privacy regulations - and thus, become the crystal ball for online user behaviour.

In addition, you’ll help users not to be spammed with irrelevant product and service suggestions by training machine learning models which create AI algorithms today that will guide decisions of tomorrow. Decisions that lead to users who are informed about the right products at the right times.

GfK provides you with panel data containing socio-demographic information and online consumption behaviour as well as test data with URLs to be predicted on. By extracting information from all kinds of sources (think videos, text, audio, images, colors,…) from the web pages behind the URLs in the supplied data, you may find relations between that information and the audiences observed in the panel.

Find the right cues, unmask your suspects and shape the future of data analytics!

3. adidas

Web3 – Let’s create tomorrow’s internet!

Decentralized networks will be the driving force of the next era of the digital economy. New tools, infrastructure services, or applications in the blockchain-based culture are driving innovative web3 use cases and will create tremendous value by enabling users to use their data to improve web experiences.

Imagine a brand like adidas coming to life in the metaverse. How could spaces be designed to fully include and engage the community? How could you drive topics such as female empowerment? How could you help the metaverse turn into a better and more equal place than actual real life?

And why not bridging the gap between NFTs and real life? Think of the combination of web3 technologies, such as smart contracts, with existing web2 solutions, and bring them to new heights. For example, networking activities can be performed on digital platforms with NFTs that document and represent our virtual life. So NFTs have the potential to not only prove what you own, but also show where you have been and what you have done. Just as it happens on currently existing web2 platforms such as Instagram, Twitter & Co.

Designing and engineering tomorrow’s internet means to connect and shape the complex world of web3 and its many promises. Let’s use community power, unleash creative potential and build a fairer and more equitable environment for everyone.
