It was a Sunday March 11th, 2018, the journey I am not working and I especially do not prefer that it does by without any activity as usual I do.
I was not really very familiar with some new words like the artificial intelligence and despite that, I woke very early as I reserved my place to be present for the for 8 hours of "DeepHack - AI Hackathon organized by Facebook Developer Circle in Tunis" in partnership with Cogite Coworking Space and InstaDeep.
I arrived to CCS at early 7 am, this space is a hub for impact-driven, entrepreneurial individuals and organizations that would like to actively contribute to sustainable development in Tunisia. I started checking for my registration for the right to attend the event.
Tunisian youth coders start arriving within the hour and are ready for a long day to break the challenges with goals in their minds. Students, professionals and curious people like me were here do discover the adventure for the world of the AI Hackathon.
