About this event


Together, the AICommunityOWL and the AI Living Lab bring together experts, enthusiasts, students, practitioners and industry to exploit the potentials of artificial intelligence.

Everyone can participate, whether you are an AI professional or a rookie, alone or in a group!


You need your own laptop/computer with a programming language of your choice. Prior knowledge of Python is recommended.

As sleeping facilities, SmartFactoryOWL and Fraunhofer IOSB-INA provide common rooms. Please bring all the utensils you need for sleeping yourself (air mattress/sleeping pad, pillow, blanket/sleeping bag).

The whole weekend you do not have to worry about your physical well-being. The food and drinks are on us!


Participation is free of charge. We will contact you a few weeks in advance at the email address you provided and send you all relevant information about the hackathon. In this email we will also ask you for a confirmation of participation. If you do not confirm your participation, your registration for the hackathon will be cancelled automatically.


SmartFactoryOWL is a living lab for Industry 4.0 and has a 2,000m² production and innovation area where demonstrators are available for research. The special feature: As part of the AI Living Lab and together with the company CUNA Products GmbH, a manufacturing facility was developed that produces organic reusable cups. It is the result of a ten partner collaboration, consisting of start-ups and market leaders such as ARBURG and KUKA. The data for the challenge(s) are generated from within the CUNA production system.
