There are two kinds of Hackathons. One is the (in)famous version where participants swill gallons of coffee, endure grueling hours, and struggle to hit pressure-filled deadlines. (There are some who consider this fun.) Then there’s the Cloudinary Regenerate Hackathon, an event recently held for Cloudinarians around the globe to collaborate, show off their creativity, and compete for amazing prizes. The focus of the event was to harness the power of AI, specifically ChatGPT and generative AI, to build innovative applications and functionalities that will improve customers’ experiences or Cloudinary’s internal workflows.
The Rengerate Hackathon brought together beginners and seasoned pros, ensuring that everyone challenged themselves to push the boundaries of GPT and generative AI technologies.
In all, 25 teams presented a staggering range of customer-focused or process-related ideas. All were creative and further demonstrated the potential for good inherent in ChatGPT and generative AI. After an intense innovation sprint, the teams presented their projects to the judging panel.
And the winners are… (cue the drumroll)
