Am I eligible to participate in the AIA Sri Lanka Hackathon Challenge?
We welcome all companies with the ability to solve any of the problem statements to apply for the AIA Sri Lanka Hackathon Challenge
Is there any geographical restriction on who can participate?
No. The physical location of the participant does not matter. We welcome solutions from all jurisdictions and will work with the participants to facilitate an effective presentation of the solution during the judging phase. Do take note the entire challenge will be conducted virtually due to ongoing travel restrictions.
Can my company submit more than 1 proposal to different problem statements?
Yes, you may submit more than 1 proposal. However, each individual proposal should be specific to a one problem statement.
What are the judging criteria?
Judging of your solution will be based on these 6 criteria:
(1) Investment Required - How feasible and do you foresee a good future for adoption? (2) Originality & Creativity - How creative was the team in developing a unique/innovative solution? (3) Presentation - Ability to clearly articulate the desired functions and ideas and outcomes of the project?
(4) Implementation - Ability for team to reach a conclusion on the viability of the project? (5) Time frame (Time to market) - How realistic are the timelines to bring product to market .All decisions made by the judges are final and not subject to review.
Is it mandatory to leverage the sandbox for our solution prototype submission?
Participating teams can leverage these technologies in the design and development of their solution prototypes. However, this is optional and not mandatory. Participants are also free to augment the provided data sets with their own externally sourced data. Participants are encouraged to propose solutions that best address the problem statements.
Will participants be able to retain all Intellectual Property (IP) rights of the proposal?
Any Intellectual Property (IP) rights of a solution remain vested in the participant that has submitted the solution. However, the participant should make available a sufficient amount of information that is necessary to fairly and accurately evaluate the solution against the evaluation criteria. The participant should also allow some details of the solution to be featured in any report that may be issued as part of the hackathon.
