Helmholtz AI labs among the finalists of this first edition of acknowledgments for local innovations

The Saxon Digital Awards honour exemplary achievements that accelerate the digital transformation in the Free State of Saxony and provide impetus for the use of digital solutions through the use of modern and innovative technologies. They will be awarded for the first time this year by the Saxon State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labor and Transport. 

Our AI hackerspaces for Kids in Dresden, Freiberg and Görlitz have been nominated as a finalist for the “Society'' category that is aimed at innovative, digital solutions that create specific social added value.


Our AI hackerspaces are led by AI researchers of our local unit Matter at HZDR as well as scientists of HZDR, CASUS and HIF. Our AI hackerspaces provide free workshops and open events for kids and teenagers where they can explore their ideas and projects around AI with the help of expert volunteers as mentors. The hackerspaces are embedded within the network of Jugend hackt being a program that started in 2013 and has now spread all around the world to places like Hong Kong, Taiwan, Sri Lanka and India.

Now, winners will be chosen by public voting starting Nov 29th at 10am. Support Helmholtz AI and Jugend Hackt with your vote!
