TUM Think Tank - The Immersive Realities Hackathon

TUM Think Tank - The Immersive Realities Hackathon

The Hackathon

This is the motivation behind the Immersive Realities Hackathon - to bring together bright minds to unleash the potential immersive realities for society, keeping in mind that equitable access, sustainable practices, and a balanced approach to innovation and responsibility are the keys to responsible immersive realities. 

The 4-day hackathon from October 10 - 13 at the TUM Think Tank in Munich will bring together on the one side (at least) 100 students and 20 mentors, and on the other side policymakers, industry (from start-ups to large companies), civil society representatives (NGOs), and academia to explore challenges and opportunities of immersive realities.

Interdisciplinary groups of students and young professionals will register individually or in teams to “hack out” a solution to a challenge along one of the following three thematic tracks.

TRACK 1 - Pairing Artificial Intelligence and Immersive Realities: Bridging the Human Gap.

TRACK 2 - XR for Games, Skill Development & Learning: Playing Differently.

TRACK 3 - Virtual Society: A New Community Thread.

Parallel Activities

Launch Event - Thursday 10th​ of October

To kick off the hackathon, an (open to the public) launch event will be organised on Thursday 10th of October in the afternoon/evening, starting with demos and short presentations from stakeholders wishing to share their technology and knowledge and a panel discussion on societal impacts of immersive technology. This will allow us to discuss the challenges previously defined and explain their complexities and relevance from diverse perspectives.

The Think-athon: Friday - Saturday, 11th & 12th ​of October

While the hackathon is ongoing, workshops will be organised on invitation for the engaged stakeholders to discuss the challenges raised for the Hackathon, problem identification, and ideal next steps concerning immersive realities research, governance, and industry. The outcomes will feed into the hackathon's outputs through potential reports (policy briefs,industry briefs, and other publications) and hopefully be the first step to advancement in the field and greater collaboration between relevant actors.

Closing Event: Sunday 13th of October

On the final day of the hackathon, in the early afternoon, a final (open to the public) panel discussion will be organised to close the hackathon and share the main takeaways. Students and mentors will be welcome to discuss their experiences in a few words, and pitch will be presented. Winners will be announced in the evening.
