The world of music has never seen an event like this! Abbey Road Studios – the legendary music studio known for producing The Beatles or Daft Punk – organised their first ever hackathon together with Abbey Road Red. Miquido was the Gold Partner of the event, arm in arm with Microsoft – the Strategic Partner.
The purpose of the action was to find new ways of using technology in the music industry and to face the challenges of musicians from all over the world. The hackathon started on Saturday, Nov 10th, at Abbey Road Studios headquarters. The day after, all the winners were announced and awarded by the board of jury and organizers.
“Our decision to be a partner of Abbey Road Studios Hackathon was not random. Miquido delivered a variety of mobile apps and web services, i.a for the music industry. We’d be happy to share our experience on emerging technologies, Data Science and UX” – says Krzysztof Gudowski, a business development expert at Miquido and a member of hackathon’s jury board.

The jury of the hackathon consisted of top industry experts, judging the solutions based on objects detection, the recognition of face, voice or even emotions. The board included:

Miquido handed a financial reward to “HRMNI” project for the most innovative solution driven by User-Friendly Thinking. The team created a space where virtual instruments communicate together, enabling users to jam in a group.
