Overview

As newer technologies disrupt, displace and reshape economies, 'the next big thing' emerging as the hotbed of innovation are the frontier technologies. While what these encompass are ever evolving, today we associate frontier technologies with Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, and an intersection of the above.The first quarter of 2016 has seen a 44% increase in funding of frontier technology startups.

At HackGSF, our goal is to encourage developers to build products that employ one or more of these frontier technologies. A crucial aspect of working with these technologies is the availability of large amounts of data. To this cause, we will provide the developers with key resources such as data and frameworks to successfully implement frontier technologies into their projects. The hackathon will be witness to talks and workshops curated by experts in these fields.

We look forward to seeing developers innovate at the intersection of many frontier technologies and industry verticals such as FinTech, Consumer, Health & Food, Education, and SaaS.
