The Mpumalanga Artificial Intelligence Hackathon saw ‘computer-minded’ students exploring the cutting-edge world of artificial intelligence.

“In today’s digital age, artificial intelligence plays an increasingly integral role in our lives. It has the power to transform industries, enhance our daily experiences, and solve complex challenges that were once deemed intractable,” said Senyeki Marebane, Mpumalanga Artificial Intelligence Student Hackathon (MAISH) chief organiser and Tshwane University of Technology eMalahleni campus academic manager. 

He said the hackathon is designed to encourage students to push their limits and create something remarkable.

 

“MAISH goes beyond just being a hackathon, it’s a call to action, an invitation to collectively contribute to the ever-evolving landscape of technology,” said Minckey Molemane on behalf of the campus rector.

Haji Atold, Kay Thakadu, Tebogo Moleta, Revelani Hlongwane and Keabetswe Ramantshane.

Mash Phurutsi from the Faculty of Information and Communication Technology (FoICT) said they stand firm that hackathons as a necessary playground are a beneficial festival of creation and it simulates opportunities to first practice design science, and then perform under pressure due to a short-given time of the program.

“According to the current literature, a good number of companies no longer require a degree for employment in the ICT sector in critical thinking, problem-solving, persistence, collaboration, and curiosity.

With this hackathon we are cultivating the culture and arousing the interest in playful ways of delivering academic innovation projects through students in Mpumalanga,” Phurutsi said.
