Team from CSE dept Secures 3rd Position in Facebook Messaging Hackathon and wins USD 1500

One Team from the dept of CSE, MIST secured third place in the Worldwide Facebook Messenger Hackathon arranged by Facebook Messenger Platform. 

 

665 teams all over the world consisting of 2738 participants took part in this hackathon and the team from Bangladesh secured the 3rd position worldwide making it the only Bangladeshi prize-winning team as well. The team also received a USD 1500 for it’s position. 

 

The team designed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven  Facebook Messenger Chatbot that lets people deliver essential goods to the doorstep so that community transmission of COVID-19 can be prevented to a certain extent. The chatbot dynamically connects the people willing to deliver goods with the people staying home and wanting the delivery, hence making it much easier for many to stay home during this pandemic! 

 

The team consists of two level 4 students from CSE department, Tasfik Rahman and Rahul Mohoto. The department conveys it’s heartiest congratulations to the students and we always look forward to our students enthusiastically participating in further open hackathons at the national and international level. All the best!
