Timeline

Any time -- Register to judge using the link above! We'll remind you when it's time to judge entries.

December 1 -- CI Hack App opens. Hackers will be taking the next 6 weeks to create better algorithms for programming cochlear implants.

February 2 -- Submissions are due. Once the submission deadline passes, Round 1 of Judging begins, followed closely by Round 2. We will send you an email to remind you to sign in and judge. You can judge as much or as little as you want.

Thank you for your participation! Hackathon winners will be announced in early March.

Round 1

In Round 1, you will judge 10 teams' submissions in all categories. You will be asked to rate the quality and clarity of the sounds on a scale from 1 (very poor) to 10 (excellent). Try to use the full rating scale.

Round 2

In Round 2, you will be asked to listen to two entries and choose the better of the two, for a subset of entries in all categories.

Review by team and code review

Top teams for each category will be notified, and a code review with the top teams will take place with the event organizers.
