[WINNER] "Objectively Human" - Liberty Mutual
We are excited to be offering the “Objectively Human” challenge where the winning team will win a $200 gift card for each member. Our challenge to you is to create a fun & wacky solution that puts humans at the center of your design. While we want you to come up with the most fun and wacky solution here, we are looking to award the team that demonstrates the most attention given to its user base. There will be bonus points for good development practices as well.
[RUNNER UP] "Objectively Human" - Liberty Mutual
Combine Citi’s sandbox APIs with other apps, systems, or websites in the health or information security space (e.g. FitBit or Sleep Data, etc) to create a framework that generates insights that link a user's health and their finances. Separately, we challenge you to think of ways you can use a set of transaction data to provide identity or security services for a user (does transaction data act as a fingerprint? How might we use that fingerprint?). When you present, have a pain-point/solution statement with user journey, and post your project on GitHub. The winning team will get $1000, split equally among the team members.
