The importance of innovation and developing new solutions that take advantage of data, advanced analytics, digital technologies, and new delivery platforms has never been more important. Simplicity and Efficiency are the key components of any modern solutions. This theme accentuates your imagination with least restrictions.
Data is the new currency of this era. Build your new innovation in the space of data such as Predictive data analytics, digital technology, blockchain, autonomous driving, remote health monitoring, Image processing, augmented reality and so on. This theme invites ideas across any domain relevant to NetApp’s business functions (technical and non-technical).
The rapidly changing customer needs are forcing organizations to evolve and adapt Cloud. Cloud offers analytics, functional programming, IoT and low code platforms. It is essential for informed decision making. You are expected to come up with innovative ideas in the cloud space.
Cloud is no longer a niche space that is only available to a select few. From a simple pet project to a large organization running thousands of microservices, cloud is the name of the game, and with it come challenges such as security, cost-management, compliance and sustainability.
Intelligent data-driven disruption is at the forefront of corporate strategies. Using data to capture new opportunities requires a strategic focus on business-critical data. Different companies are carrying out a variety of business-led initiatives using efficient data management with the focus on scalability, performance, data protection and Big data processing.
They are trying to solve the challenges around efficiency, redundancy, speed, cost, compliance and areas like data security. Data-breaches are almost a daily news and the implications – some involving money, some legal, some reputation and some mix of all. Enterprises invest heavily on data security to protect the data against cyber threat, maintain availability of data through denial-of-service attacks, theft, data loss, unintended destruction, intrusion detection, business continuity, SSL encryption etc.
Artificial Intelligence is the art of training machines to perceive, synthesize, and infer information to demonstrate intelligence. Today, it plays a prominent role in several use cases ranging from medical sciences for malignant tumour detection to entertainment for strategic games like chess to banking & finance for stock market predictions.
Your focus for this innovation challenge is to come up with ideas that will improve existing AI Models and Technology to increase the intelligence and accuracy of machines to help advance/create new solutions. This includes but is not limited to Natural Language Processing, Recommendation systems, Computer Vision, and Image recognition.
