  • 1.  Announcing the Generative AI Developer Hackathon

    Posted 09-18-2023 13:02

    We're delighted to announce the Generative AI Developer Hackathon, our very first Developer Hackathon. In this hackathon, we're tasking you with building an automation solution using SS&C Blue Prism products and generative AI. The challenge begins on October 16th, 2023, and is open to the following categories: Teams, Individual, Student.

    What are Developer Hackathons?

    Developer Hackathons are open-ended challenges built by you, for you. Each challenge presents a simple challenge or idea, your task is to create whatever you feel best represents your ideas. Innovation is positively encouraged, we aren't providing prescriptive instructions, it's simply down to you and your capabilities to build amazing solutions.

    We'll provide access to an environment if you need it, or you can use your own. You'll have 5 days to create your solution, and provide a demo and documentation to demonstrate what it can do. Your solution will then go through our judging process, with prizes for the winning entry in each category.

    Teams: Each member of the winning team of 3-5 will receive a $150 gift voucher, as well as SS&C Blue Prism Developer Hackathon swag, up to $100 in value.

    Individual: The winner will receive a $150 gift voucher, as well as SS&C Blue Prism Developer Hackathon swag, up to $100 in value.

    Student: The winner will receive an SS&C Blue Prism University certification voucher, as well as SS&C Blue Prism Developer Hackathon swag, up to $100 in value.

    How does the challenge work?

    We're committed to keeping it simple, here's a breakdown of the challenge from registration, through to prize-giving:

    1. Register your interest by completing our registration survey
    2. Successful entries will be notified from week commencing October 9th, 2023
    3. If you need access to an environment, we'll get you set up that same week*. If you have your own environment, you're welcome to use that
    4. The week before, we'll send everything you need to understand how the challenge will be evaluated, and what we expect from you

    Hello, Kevin Barnes so there is no problem statement that the team will be giving right? We can build whatever we wish that uses GenAI. Is that correct?

    Just wanted to understand the format.

    And when do we need to request for VMs? 

    Can we get a trial license for BP portfolio products (not BPE community) if we want to use them? Like Interact. Decision etc
