Intel® & MachineHack to launch oneAPI Blogathon Contest

Technology is changing rapidly, and it has significantly influenced the way we preserve the world. As a result, the words used to describe – particularly technical blogging – have noticeably become integral parts of the product life cycle, research and development, and building competitive advantage. 

In a bid to encourage more and more people towards technical blogging/writing, Intel®, in association with MachineHack, is set to launch a two-month-long oneAPI Blogathon Contest from March 16 to June 15, 2022. This is a purely technical blogathon, where Intel® is encouraging participants to create meaningful content, with the utmost brevity, on given topics, such as oneAPI, Migrating from CUDA* to oneAPI Data-Parallel C++ (DPC++), Intel® AI Analytics Toolkit etc. 

THE BELAMY

Sign up for your weekly dose of what's up in emerging technology.

The blogathon will be a great opportunity for participants to not only showcase their skills and expertise on Intel® oneAPI tools but also advance their knowledge about Intel® oneAPI products and services, as the participant will have to research the subject to gain a deeper understanding. In addition, the entries will be a gateway for new contributors to become productive members of the Intel® community. 

The best entries will stand a chance to win prizes worth INR 3 lakh, iPad mini, Amazon gift vouchers and more. Sounds exciting, right?
