Ukrainian SoftServe engineers won the TIDE NATO Hackathon 2023

A team of specialists from the IT company SoftServe won in the technical direction of the TIDE NATO Hackathon 2023 in Warsaw.

This year there were three challenges: programming of drones, application of artificial intelligence for contextual and semantic analysis of news, and creation of analytical dashboards, in which SoftServe engineers participated. In one of the challenges, engineers presented a solution that could help NATO and partner countries better interact with each other in the fight against a common enemy.

The teams had to create creative and interactive graphics for NATO’s annual multinational CWIX exercise, which tests how allied IT systems will interact in a combat environment and develop key performance indicators to show how successful the gathering was compared to previous years.

“Ukrainian engineers analyzed in detail the advantages and disadvantages of these exercises. Based on this, they not only created performance indicators, but also additionally developed recommendations on how to improve the performance of CWIX and proposed a solution that will help to quickly identify gaps that hinder the success of exercises and eliminate them,” the company says.

The winners of the challenges will present their solutions at the Spring 2023 TIDE Sprint to be held in Norway in April. 

In total, more than 100 participants from 26 teams from Lithuania, Germany, Poland, the United Kingdom, Italy, Norway, Ukraine, Romania, the United States, France, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom competed in the winter NATO TIDE Hackathon.
