Today, we are starting a new series in TowardsAI, where we compile the latest Hackathons related to AI and Data Science, and share it with you, daily. In this new endeavour, I seek your support to share it wide and far, so that the hackers and coders of this world are encouraged to think about solutions to problems, early on, in life. I'd appreciate your help. Thank you. :)
