With support from OpenAI, the parent company of ChatGPT, Emirates NBD, DIFC, and Hale Education generously sponsor the event. Organizers express their vision of establishing the hackathon as an annual competition aimed at inspiring and supporting high school students in navigating the evolving landscape of AI.
