The hackathon will offer a diverse group of 150 developers, makers, designers and industrial IoT experts the opportunity to create next generation connected devices and solutions in the areas of industrial, smart city, and security and privacy.

Participants will be able to leverage the Intel EPID open source SDK and cloud based verification service to create a solution that leverages EPID anonymity properties. Intel will award a $2,500 prize to the most creative application that showcases privacy/anonymity as a key tenant.
