Challenges 2024

Scan & Compare market products

Embark with us on an initiative to gain a real and deep understanding of our competitors’ offerings.We want your tech skills and creativity to create a tool that scans and analyzes product data available on the internet like ingredients, certifications and nutritional values directly from pictures. You can use OCR, GenAI, … – your choice! 

In the ever-competitive retail market, staying ahead requires not just keeping pace but outmatching the competition in quality, healthiness, and customer satisfaction. ALDI Süd is embarking on an initiative to gain a deep understanding of what its rivals are offering. Together, let’s revolutionize retail by harnessing available data for comprehensive product comparison and leveraging findings for enhanced negotiations, product development and growth. On-site research was yesterday. At HerHackathon we are not sending you to stores collecting data. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves developing a cutting-edge solution that leverages technology to dissect and compare the intricate details of product attributes directly from their images that you can find on the internet. From the depths of ingredients lists to the specifics of nutritional values and labels/certifications (gluten-free, vegan, fair trade), your tool will analyze product data captured directly from images sourced from websites or maybe even leaflets. This task demands a blend of skills: OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for text extraction, AI for image recognition and data comparison, and a dash of creativity to design a user-friendly interface that presents complex data in an easily digestible format. 

This challenge is your opportunity to not only showcase your technical prowess. By enabling Aldi Süd to benchmark its products against competitors’ offerings accurately, your solution will fuel informed decision-making and product development, steering the retail giant toward offerings that best meet consumer needs. 

As you embark on this journey, you’ll be supported by our Data Scientists and ALDI Experts and see how we would use your idea in a real world, innovative application.

Develop a tech solution that empowers consumers to self-discover individual skin secrets and visualize their impact.

In our challenge, we’re seeking a technological solution that empowers our consumers to self-discover the unique secrets of their skin and visualize how to optimize their skincare routines. At Beiersdorf, we’re firm believers in the profound impact skin health has on individual well-being. Simultaneously, we understand that our overall wellbeing significantly influences the appearance and condition of our skin. 

That’s precisely why we’re reaching out to you — to collaborate on developing comprehensive solutions that not only help consumers better understand their skin but also empower them to enhance it using cutting-edge technology. 

We’re aiming for a technical solution that factors in both external elements and internal influences such as moods, well-being, and overall health.

Unlock dream career journeys 

Are you ready to revolutionize the way to find career paths? Create a platform that enables individuals building a fulfilling career based on their unique characters, preferences, and more. These parameters should lead to a tailored career path which will be supported by a matched mentor. Let your creativity run free and form a new era of career 4.0.  

In our challenge we are looking for a tool that will unlock dream career journeys. As ING Germany, we believe that everyone should be empowered to find a fulfilled work life.  

In a world full of abstract job vacancies and buzzwords it is essential to offer a tool that enables individuals to build a thriving career – based on unique characters, talents, experience, personal preferences, and other attributes. Our vision is that the tool you create will illustrate an individual career path based on all these criteria – to make dream career journeys come true.  

To achieve that, the tool should allow matching with mentors, i.e., people who have already gained a lot of expertise by pursuing their own dream careers.  

In order to find the one and only mentor, the matching should be based on individual criteria (such as the same background, characteristics, interests, …). It should also be possible to look at the stories of the matched mentors to decide on the best match.  

But it shouldn’t stop there! With your innovative ideas and skills, we’re sure that you will build THE platform for career (and personal) happiness! Let your creativity run free.  

Become a valuable member of a team forming a new era of career 4.0.  

Goal of the platform should be (but is not limited to): 

  • Show tailored career paths based on unique characters, talents, experience, personal preferences, and other attributes 
  • Match mentee and mentor based on individual criteria (such as same background, characteristics, interests, …)
