Empowering young innovators: Arctur guides students in solving engineering challenges with AI at the EESTech Challenge

15. 4. 2024 / GOV & NGOs Arctur, a leading high-tech company, recognizes the pivotal role of collaboration between students and enterprises in driving innovation and fostering talent development.

Since our inception, we've prioritized efforts towards research, innovation, and technological advancement. However, we understand that true progress stems from nurturing the next generation of innovators and problem solvers.

That's why we've committed ourselves to actively engaging with students, providing them with opportunities to immerse themselves in our work environment, and equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in the ever-evolving tech landscape. Our dedication to this cause was recently exemplified through our participation in the EESTech Challenge hackathon.

The EESTech Challenge serves as a platform for students to apply their theoretical knowledge to real-world problems, particularly in the domains of computer science and electrical engineering, leveraging cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence (AI). For Arctur, this event presented an invaluable opportunity not only to challenge and inspire students but also to witness firsthand the fresh perspectives and innovative solutions they bring to the table.

Arctur's technical team orchestrated a challenge for students as a pivotal component of the EESTech Challenge hackathon: "Predictive Model of Visiting Mountain Trails." Within 24 hours, 18 student teams tackled specific challenges emblematic of engineers' daily endeavours. Arctur's challenge encompassed the creation of both a predictive model for trail visitation and an application for data visualization and forecasting. Undeterred, five resolute teams, guided by Arctur's expertise, eagerly embraced the challenge.

Leveraging an artificial intelligence application, the students crafted an operational and notably innovative solution, showcasing their prowess to the jury. Two teams distinguished themselves by excelling in addressing Arctur's challenge, securing positions among the top four teams in the entire competition. The victorious team is poised to vie in the final challenge against counterparts from diverse EU countires.

We extend heartfelt congratulations to all participants and anticipate many more triumphs achieved through collaborative problem-solving endeavors!

Beyond the competition itself, our involvement underscores our commitment to nurturing talent and fostering meaningful partnerships with educational institutions. We firmly believe that initiatives like the EESTech Challenge not only offer students invaluable experiential learning opportunities but also enable enterprises like Arctur to tap into fresh talent pools, driving innovation and growth in the process.
