Hackathon icon
Monday, July 12 to Sunday, July 18

Over $10,000 in cash will be awarded!

Calling all AI enthusiasts! Sikka's second-ever external Hackathon will focus on predictive analytics – namely, predicting the production of (totally deidentified) dental practices.

Not only will you get to compete alongside a peer set that includes members of some of the top data science departments working in tech, over $10,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded. So sign up today!



It’s always nice to have an accurate prediction of the revenue a business makes for the subsequent month(s). This would help the business plan accordingly and adjust their investments and time. For a dental practice, prediction of revenue is equivalent to prediction of production. An accurate forecast would help the practice in inventory planning, capacity planning, planning working hours, hiring and many more factors.
