MontyHacks III

Dual Nature - Health and AI

June 8, 2019, 8:30 AM to 10:00 PM — Montgomery High School, Skillman, NJ


MontyHacks is an entirely student run event hosted by the Montgomery Computer Science Club in partnership with YECNJ. It is located at Montgomery High School in Skillman, New Jersey and is running for the third time this year. We have wonderful mentors and speakers that will guide you along the way and hopefully help you build something great! Students of all experience levels are welcome!

MontyHacks III’s theme is Dual Nature, the crossroads of Health and Artificial Intelligence. There is so much opportunity to innovate and design new and amazing things with the combination of healthcare and AI, and we want our hackers to discover just how rich the field is. Come to MontyHacks and broaden your horizons!

HEALTH

Healthcare is one of the most exciting fields of development today. We are looking for new and innovative ways to provide care with the fusion of computer science and engineering and modern medicine. If you've ever dreamed of revolutionizing modern medicine, MontyHacks is a great place to start!

AI

Artificial intelligence will be the next big frontier of computer science, with loads of new possibilities. One of the most promising areas of AI is in radically advancing healthcare to new heights. Show us something amazing in AI; the possibilities are endless!

READY, SET, HACK!

Your options aren't limited to only health and AI. Pursue any crazy idea you've ever wanted to try, be it a new website or game or product idea. The sky's the limit at MontyHacks!
