Griffith student's team wins McCann Fitzgerald hackathon

McCann Hackathon


A team of four third-level students, inluding Griffith College's first-year Computer Science student Orla Moriarty (pictured third from the left), have triumphed in McCann FitzGerald’s Legal Apps Hackathon, the first-ever legal hackathon to use AI technology, with their white collar crime reporting app. The team, made up of Orla, final-year law students at Trinity College, Bronwyn Hogan and Darragh McDonagh, and first-year computer science student at DIT Stephen Pearson, developed the “White Collar Crime Reporting Advisor App”, during a 24-hour marathon challenge at McCann FitzGerald’s Dublin office using Neota Logic’s AI software. McCann FitzGerald managing partner Barry Devereux stated how impressed his company was with the standard of the entries, but ultimately chose the White Collar Crime Reporting Advisor app due to its "commercial potential and market-readiness, its strong user interface and the benefits it offers clients.”

Everyone at Griffith College would like to congratulat Orla and the team on their win and hope they enjoy their €2,000 prize!
