Mubadala, IBM Watson's Cognit initiative to hold 'hackathon' in conjunction with Etihad Airways
Cognit, the joint venture created by Mubadala and IBM Watson, has partnered with Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to hold a hackathon in celebration of the nationwide Innovation Week 2016 in late November.
 
“Cognit was launched exactly one year ago, during UAE Innovation Week 2015, and I am proud to be able to celebrate along with the rest of the nation to promote the ICT talent and continued ICT transformation in our nation,” Amal Al Jabri, general manager at Cognit, said. “The hackathon, in partnership with Etihad, demonstrates an important commitment Cognit has not only to advance the interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects and skills with students, but also to the broader local developer and start-up community who can help ignite the UAE’s knowledge based economy aspirations.”
 
UAE Innovation Week is an initiative created to help the nation grow its position as a global innovation leader and hub. The hackathon will be conducted at Etihad’s Innovation Centre and will bring together more than 30 talented computer science and engineering students.
