Berkeley SkyDeck and Cal Hacks are thrilled to announce the UC Berkeley AI Hackathon, the largest AI hackathon ever. Held on the UC Berkeley campus, from June 17-18th, the hackathon offers the opportunity to develop skills and build meaningful connections, and will also feature workshops, mentorship, and unique resources to help participants bring their AI-powered ideas to life responsibly and safely. In partnership with Microsoft, Lenovo, and others, the hackathon offers privileged access to OpenAI’s invite-only API (including GPT-4 access) and best-in-class AI/LLM (Large Language Model) tools, such as Langchain, Pinecone, MindsDB, and more. Participation in the UC Berkeley AI Hackathon is not exclusive to UC Berkeley students, as current students or any graduates who received their undergrad within the past 10 years from any university are invited to apply. Top Silicon Valley VCs including Sequoia, Lightspeed, and Mayfield, will reward the top four teams with $50K each. Learn more and apply here before June 9th at 11:59pm PDT to be part of this epic 36-hour hacking experience!
