Internal employee communication using a chatbot by PKN Orlen

In a large enterprise employees often look for specific information in various categories. Some of that information is publicly available and can be found e.g. on the Intranet, while some of it require contact with particular employees. Such situations relate to e.g. information from the HR area on the person concerned. In addition to providing access to data available in the HR systems, there is also a need to provide the employee with additional explanation which is done by particular HR employees. The aim of the task is to propose a chatbot solution which would support the HR employees in providing additional information, i.a. based on a defined and constantly developed database of questions, continuous self-learning of the chatbot, search of available data and documents, etc. In addition to answering the questions, chatbot’s activities should also include pointing to particular locations on the network, where the employee can find the information of their interest, as well as providing with specific data files generated exclusively for them. The solution should be available on computers and smartphones. More details to follow soon.

Data categorizing software by EXATEL

Amount of available data increases every day. Finding useful information – information we can work with – is possible, but quite tedious and difficult without spending lots of resources.
Can you write the software which, given a lot of uncategorized data (say – tweets, blog posts, application logs, pcaps), groups them by the similarity of the discussed topic?
The goal is that certain groups can be ignored as uninteresting and other browsed manually. Could you score and sort the information in a useful way?
If you’ve considered trying your skills with unsupervised machine learning, this challenge is for you!

Digital accessibility validator for mobile applications by THE MINISTRY OF DIGITAL AFFAIRS

Mobile applications should be digitally available to users with disabilities, which in practice means they must meet the requirements of WCAG 2.1. However, there is no simple IT tool that could inform the programmer or the person receiving the ordered application whether the application meets these requirements or not, or at least whether there are no gross errors of digital accessibility. We need such a validator for iOS and Android applications.


Team name: DDD
Project name: WCAG 2.1 Validator
Team members: Kacper Potyrała, Filip Grzywok, Jan Rosa, Krzysztof Jędrzejek, Unweek

Chatbot for sensitive information by GFT Poland

Chatbots. They offer great benefits in service automation but are not easy to implement from scratch. For this reason, there are many publicly available services that make chatbot creation way easier and quicker. The problem with these solutions, especially in the finance sector, is users share lots of sensitive data whilst using a bot. Phone numbers, addresses, document ids, they go to the public cloud. It is not acceptable for many GFT clients.

In our challenge, we ask you to design a „data sensitive chatbot”. Its engine will be hosted publicly, but it needs to introduce measures that will enable its usage with sensitive data safely.


Team name: Codeheroes
Project name: Codeheroes – Sieve (GFT sensitive bot)
Team members: Jakub Darul, Maciej Ciołek

What the project is about? Our solution enables companies who process sensitive data to use cloud-based chatbot APIs, because it stores all sensitive data locally. Therefore chatbot users wont have to agree to sending their sensitive data to chatbot providers.

Project description: Sieve is a chatbot proxy for sensitive information. We created a proxy – Chat API responsible for labeling and filtering out sensitive information in client messages. Our target audience could be companies who want to use cloud-based chatbot engine, but don’t want to share clients’ private data with chatbot provider. Main tools we employed are named-entity recognition, and regular expressions.

Chat to EU by European Commission

With fake news spreading on decentralised channels such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, how can an institution such as the European Commission use the same tools to make itself better known as a credible source of information and fight for a good cause: facts-based interactions?

Build a technology layer (algorithm, chatbot…) that cuts through the jungle of EU information! The tool will rely on a set of data sources to offer most up-to-date and reliable EU information on a specific topic. The objective is to build a fun conversation partner that is able to explain who does what in a specific field, debunk myths and also to learn from the user! Beware: it shall keep you engaged through its personalisation elements and you will want to keep chatting, learning more about the EU.

The main aim of the challenge will be to fight and prevent disinformation and the topic (to be revealed at a later stage) is to be seen just as an example. The bulk of the challenge is to build a chatbot that can crawl a selection of pages and provide a natural interaction replying to concerns and questions about the EU. It is not a rules-based, but a knowledge-based bot – pure AI is what we are after, although nothing prevents you from pushing from time to time a series of choices to the user to drive the conversation further.


Team name: Chatbotize
Project name: Eugene – the EU chatbot
Team members: Maja Schaefer, Maciej Ciołek, Łukasz Kaźmierczak

The future of media by Ringer Axel Springer

Technology has transformed how we consume news. There’s no waiting for an evening newspaper to arrive at your doorstep, no long-awaited weekly portions of juicy gossip, and almost no TV programmes that we go back to every Thursday.

Most of the content we enjoy is becoming available on-demand, whenever and wherever we want. We can binge, we can rewatch, reread and comment. We use our phones for work, for fun, to get news and to express opinions any time we want. Many people thrive in the online world… but there are also some that are left behind or left overwhelmed. 

Young people are glued to their phones, effortlessly merging virtual with offline but find it hard to focus on what is important… Smartphones are the last and first things we touch every day, fake news can spread like wildfire, and online bullying is becoming a sad reality for many. Clearly, in this landscape, media today are facing challenges like never before.

The future is being created now. It may be wonderful or it may be the opposite. It’s pretty much up to us. 

How could we include those who struggle with staying up to date in an online world: the elderly, those with disabilities and others? How to make sure they can fully participate in the online world: reading news, expressing views, shopping and socializing? How can we help those who can’t hear anything meaningful in a constant online buzz? How to help people manage the chaos of uncertain information coming at them from different sources?
