Tata Technologies has launched the second edition its InnoVent hackathon in collaboration with Microsoft and Tata Motors. 

This year's hackathon focuses on Generative AI-enabled innovations that deliver value across the product development value chain, including product engineering, manufacturing, and customer experience.

This collaborative initiative aims to engage engineering students across India, providing them with a platform to showcase their creativity and innovations that address the challenges faced by the manufacturing industry, the press release noted. 

Tata Technologies will empower the top project team/s with the innovation tools and technologies needed to develop scalable innovations. The Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from Tata Technologies will mentor and guide the top-performing project team/s to scale their projects. Microsoft will offer top team/s complimentary access to Azure resources and project mentoring through the Azure community, whereas Tata Motors will help define real-world challenges and support the commercialisation of top projects.

The hackathon is open to 3rd and 4th year engineering students across India and encourages inclusive participation, inviting entries from women engineers and differently abled team members, thus reinforcing its commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The evaluation process will consist of three stages: initial reviews, virtual Proof of Concept (PoC) presentations, and final demonstrations. Projects will be assessed based on diversity, novelty, feasibility, and impact. The top three winning teams will receive cumulative cash prizes worth Rs 4.5 lakh, along with paid internship opportunities at Tata Technologies. 

Warren Harris, MD and CEO of Tata Technologies, stated, "Through our collaboration with Microsoft and Tata Motors, we aim to provide young innovators with a platform to develop novel solutions leveraging Generative AI and help them translate their ideas to life."

Himani Agrawal, Country Head – Azure, Microsoft India and South Asia, said, "By providing a scalable Gen AI Azure environment and access to the wider Azure community, we aim to help students accelerate the development of their innovations. We look forward to the impact of this collaboration."
