What will be done?
The Legal Hackathon concerns the intersection of artificial intelligence and law. There are two challenges to choose from, supervised by experts from the field: from the perspective of law enforcement or corporate compliance, the teams develop practical AI solutions.
The Hackthon offers all participants the unique opportunity to work on projects together with students from different and highly-developing faculties. Insights into future-oriented professional fields and an exciting exchange about the methods of computer science, artificial intelligence and law guarantee a special project experience. Professional technical support is provided by the cloud services from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Do I need to have prior knowledge of artificial intelligence?

For each challenge, a sample is provided that can be used without programming knowledge. In an introductory course, all topics and tools will also be explained and presented. Support will be provided during the editing phase.
