Trio Communications director Felicity Anderson was chuffed to be invited to be a judge for FaceMe’s first hackathon at the BHIVE @Smales Farm. Together with Nicholas Maquet of Movio (far left) and Mark Fitzgerald of FaceMe (far right) she heard several presentations from teams on how they would use creativity to bring new things to the table for FaceMe.
If you haven’t heard of FaceMe you should check it out because it’s the hottest company using ai (artificial intelligence) in New Zealand right now. The winner was Victor Yeun, head of product, who went outside
