NITI Aayog Launches Global Hackathon On Artificial Intelligence

With the vision to further expand the idea of Artificial Intelligence for All, articulated in the National AI Strategy, NITI Aayog organises hackathons to source sustainable, innovative and technologically-enabled solutions to address various challenges in the development space.

Taking the initiative forward, NITI Aayog is now partnering with Perlin – a Singapore-based AI start up – to launch the AI 4 All Global Hackathon, and is inviting developers, students, start-ups and companies to develop AI applications to make significant positive social and economic impact for India.
