Hackathon Journey so far

From a large pool of 1311 participants and 720 teams registered for the initial phase of the Hackathon, we shortlisted the top 36 solutions in Phase I through a rigorous evaluation process based on technical competence and innovative solutions.

These shortlisted teams moved to Phase II where the task was to develop a working prototype of their AI model. After another round of technical evaluation, we have shortlisted an elite 15 teams who will now vie for the winners’ slot during the Grand Finale.

On September 8th 2023, these ingenious 15 teams will compete for the final five slots, and five of them will emerge as the winners! We look forward to amazing solutions for building plastic-free rivers with AI and beyond. Best Wishes!
