Sustainable Retail Hackathon 21’
Retail is currently being reimagined through a sustainability lens. As different stakeholders demand more ethical and sustainable solutions, retailers are being forced to innovate processes to meet stakeholder’s needs thus making sustainability a trend for 2021.
To generate sustainable solutions, AI needs to be recognized as an ally. Combined with advances in data, algorithmic programming and increasingly precise tools, sustainability becomes the path to restoration, while fortifying processes to build a more resilient future.
At the intersection of Retail & AI Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the Hackathon is intended to help businesses find and create new solutions towards sustainability.
Hackaton is a one-week competition built around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), adopted by all UN Member States in 2015 to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
Each team chooses three specific SDG to work on from the list of 6 pre-selected goals for the challenge, including startups, academies, and other.
The competition will be powered by the AI Store as mentor and promotor and evaluated by Iberian Retailers with SDG Goals in their agenda.
Week 1 and Week 2 will be destined for registration. On the following week, 12 teams will move on and participate on the challenge that will take place during week 5.
You can either enter alone or in teams of 3 to 5 elements.
From the top 3 SDG’s list provided by the team, the organization will define the SDG each will work on. The teams will be paired with retailers that also addressed the same SDG.
On the first day, after listening to AI Store and Retailers, the Organization Team will present the Challenge with a brief session of Q&A and the teams will meet in their virtual room for an activity.
The teams will have 3 days to develop their Sustainable AI concept, together with members of the Organization Team around the SDG goal assigned to them.
On the last day, the teams will pitch their solution to the jury, who will decide the winner who will have the opportunity to develop their idea alongside the client and AI Store.
