There are different events every year so everyone who attends the event has something to look forward to! Cummins is hosting it’s first ever 24-hour Hackathon this year which is sponsored by IBM, in which participants code solutions to Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing applications which will then be reviewed by IBM representatives.
