From their website:
“EmergenTech: Hack ASU is a hybrid hackathon/pitch competition where participants will compete in multidisciplinary teams to apply emerging technologies to revolutionize public and private industries. Over 36-hours, participants will form teams, select an emerging technology for an industry focus and develop their prototypes and business concepts. The event will culminate in a pitch competition with a live audience and an elite judging-panel. Presentations will be judged on technical merits, design and concept feasibility. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams.”

It's Doug Davis, Senior Vice President & GM Automated Driving Group at Intel! #keynote #emergentech #intelsoftware #asu #hackathon and he was giving thte keynote talk before this event!
Turns out ASU has more innovators and does more innovation than anywhere else in the country. I didn’t know this. Even during a robot event, they beat out MIT. :)
Proudly wearing my Emergentech shirt for the event!

It was cool to learn facts like China will have more top cities than anywhere else in the world, and it’s important for us in the western world to have a say in how those shape, technologically
Food. wow. we waste a LOT of food. between 1/4th and 1/3rd of all food made, is just WASTED. we have enough food to feed EVERYONE on earth, and yet we will waste and we still don’t feed them. :(

Me and Mark! Cool guy!!
We played with some robots while Dog talked Intel stuff.
Me and my old classmate from back in the day (who also did one of my first-ever digital photoshoots) Taylor Searle now does Business Intelligence for The Wolff Company. #impressed
Me with Brian, Taylor and Edwin from The Wolff Company. We were discussing innovation in general and innovative ways we can create new opportunities for the real estate market which according to their talk is still 30 years behind the times in technology. Deals in that world are still very much done on napkins and golfing. Very mafia. (just kidding)
Innovators and Mentors meeting to help students!

Seriously cool brain power!
I loved that the different teams had different approaches, ideas and technology choices for this 36-hour hackathon.
Here’s Moheeb’s pet rabbit. Just because.
The following are pics from Intel’s brilliant Stewart Christie!!
