Software Development Company Wins eMerge Americas 2019 ...

On April 27th 2019, two teams from The SilverLogic (TSL) joined 26 other teams to compete in the annual eMerge Americas hackathon. The assignment was to create a technology innovation bridge between cities to bring the world and Miami together. “ TSL’s SilverEagle team created an app they called “On The Move.” The app allowed users to plan custom activity in a particular location within a given time window.  The app was a functional, native Android app that could display activities near the user that could be completed in the time the user had allotted as free time.  SilverEagle’s  “On the Move” app  claimed the first place prize of $10,000 while TSL’s SilverFox team finished close behind as a top 5 finalist. 

TSL’s CEO and founder David Hartmann reflected: “I’m so proud that our two teams finished in the top five. Designing and developing an idea into a working product within 24 hours is quite hard, so this hackathon was even more challenging by giving us only 12 hours.”

How “On the Move”  works: Users set the time they can allocate for activities and select the types of places they would like to visit. Once this data is entered the app geolocates the user and automatically creates a schedule.  Activities and places can be changed or added, and the app calculates the amount of time the user has allocated and travel  time to amend the schedule. This app would appeal  to anyone that is in a new city, perhaps on a layover, who might want to use their available hours to explore instead of waiting in their hotel for a flight.

4 Tips to Win a Hackathon

Caffeine, coding, and sleep deprivation is not everyone's ideal Saturday night. However, hackathoners have grown accustomed to this trifecta in varying degrees when competing in the weekend-long competition.

LEVELS | An AR Hurricane Hackathon App

Teams from The SilverLogic had an incredible showing at eMerge Americas in Miami Beach, taking home second-place prizes in both the eMerge Visa Challenge and the overall hackathon.

 

Our prize-winning entry into the 2018 eMerge Americas Hackathon was Levels, an augmented reality solution for iOS that aids in disaster preparedness for low-lying coastal areas and also includes a missing person finder for after a natural disaster. Speaking in the final pitch to a South Florida audience, CEO David Hartmann said, “We all remember [Hurricane] Irma very well. I’m from Germany and haven't lived here long enough to know what this is all about; I was pretty lost, but not the only one. I found visualizations from The Weather Channel very useful, so we wanted to take that a step further.”

 


The idea behind the AR portion of the solution was simple: By visualizing potential flood levels in real-time, it would help users get a much better sense of what different levels of storm surge could really do to different properties. The app also contained a supply calculator that estimates the number of sandbags needed in order to ward off different levels of flooding based on different elements of the property to be protected.

But when disaster strikes, protecting one’s property is far less important than protecting one’s loved ones. Even though the worst of Irma missed South Florida, thousands were temporarily displaced to shelters that could often be overcrowded and chaotic. The most stressful moments of any disaster that compromises the communication or power grids is not knowing whether friends and family are safe; toward that end, Levels includes a built-in ‘Missing Person Finder’ that uses an integrated facial recognition tool from Kairos to match a current photo with one that would be stored in a central database. For privacy reasons, Levels does not give the actual location of the individual, but a confirmed check in via the app would post that person as accounted for and provide peace of mind until more thorough communication channels were restored.

 

Levels is a prototype project at this point, but it utilizes a number of innovative APIs (from Kairos and Cloudinary) and iOS technologies (ARKit) that allowed this working prototype to be built in under 24 hours. We believe Levels could be extremely useful as both a standalone app or as an integration into an existing product, and are excited about building it out with more features in the very near future.
