Lingó Hack 2020 a student hackathon at Reykjavik University, where students gather together to collaborate, innovate, learn, and experiment while creating a project from scratch within 24 hours. Language Technology will be the central theme of this hackathon. We’ll give you all the resources you need, from hardware and APIs to workshops, sponsors, and volunteers who can help you with whatever questions you might have. In a few words, you come here to have fun, learn about things you didn’t even know existed and see your ideas come to life. We encourage all college or university students from any faculty to participate.
Students at all levels of study and age 18 and over are welcome to attend.
