About this event

1. What's BotᵒPhone ?

BOT PHONE is an immersive and interactive installation, which allows to enter in dialogue with a literary work through Artificial Intelligence. It takes the form of a retro-futuristic phone booth, made of two parts:

An armchair that isolates the spectator phonetically to let them be fully immersed by the discussion. A mirror/screen where the face of the person is captured and thanks to face tracking, a game of mirrors and mirages unfolds throughout the experience

Learn more on the artist's website and check out her other creations:

2. What's the Hackathon about?

In teams of 4-5 people, you will work together with the assistance of a mentor, in order to hack the bot in the most creative way and develop a personalized and unique experience. This hackathon is beginner-friendly, so you do not need to have prior knowledge as you will be provided with the necessary tools. It is open to everyone, and is a great opportunity to meet  new people and create great things. You can also gather your friends and come as a team !

3. How is it organized ?

It's a series of 3 events:

• The kickoff : presentation of the device, networking, assigning groups and mentors
