AI HERO Hackathon on Energy Efficient AI

19.06.2023 – 21.06.2023

Have you ever wondered how much energy your deep models consume during training and inference? Have you ever attempted cutting down energy usage? Do you have what it takes to develop state-of-the-art AI models without investing hundreds of GPU hours? If so - then the AI-HERO 2 hackathon is for you!

Build an accurate and energy-efficient model to solve exciting use cases from either health or energy. You will be competing against other teams from Helmholtz and are in the race for winning amazing prices!

The hackathon is organized jointly by Helmholtz Imaging, Helmholtz AI and HMC.

Register here:

Date: June 19-21st 2022
Target group:
AI-researchers with experience in model development, training and optimization
participants will be divided into teams of three to tackle model development for one of two possible use-cases (one in research field health & one in energy). Premade teams are of course allowed!
Challenge: build and optimize a model while using as little energy as possible

!You can win awesome prizes!

PhD students and PostDocs from all Helmholtz Centers, Programs and associated universities are welcome to apply. Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, the Hackathon will be fully virtual via Zoom.

Until then,
The AI-HERO Team
