Self-organising Teams in Software Houses

You hear a lot about scrum rituals and artifacts. People write books on how to transfer their theoretical frames into reality.

Currently, security is one of the hottest topics in IT. Users, companies, and legislators are taking the subject of data security and privacy more and more seriously. This trend also applies to mobile applications due to their proximity to the user.

Over five hundred images, three days, and one team to release the first version of the application that will make our cities look prettier on photographs. Netguru and MicroscopeIT joined forces to run in an AI/ML-focused hackfest. The result? An app that can automatically remove all those pesky cranes from your cityscape pictures with a single click of a button, all thanks to Deep Learning algorithms. If you've ever been to London or Warsaw, you'll know that cranes are everywhere! Even though the app has very limited use (let's be honest, you don't actually get so many cranes in pictures, do you?), it lays a solid base for co-operation on future Machine Learning projects between the two companies.
