Artificial Intelligence (AI) aims to learn how to do things that people are good at. Humans are great at stringing together complex concepts and harnessing them towards a goal. With that in mind, we’re also moulded by our culture, upbringing, and history. This introduces bias in all humans...

Once an idea has made its journey into an implemented solution, it is necessary to make sure the original need has been met. Just because something is in production, it does not necessarily mean it is doing what it should be, and often it’s difficult to tell straight away. ...

We’ve finally reached a post-waterfall world, where iterative problem-solving processes have all but eclipsed traditional models. Almost every tech business, IT department and start-up will tell you they are "wall-to-wall" agile, and have embraced Scrum, Kanban or one of the numerous scaled delivery frameworks. Even so, non-delivery is still common because we've not yet learned to consistently build and drive cross-functional teams. ...

Supplied by entelect2013 Administrator from entelect2013
Any engineering discipline requires a reliable process to produce solutions or products that bring value to an organisation. The chosen process should help teams to deliver a quality solution or product within a predictable timeline and at a sustainable pace. In software, this process is called the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) which has process elements including requirements gathering, design, implementation, testing, deployment and maintenance.

Initiatives

 

Entelect Challenge

One of the many amazing initiatives run by Entelect is the Entelect Challenge. For a number of years now, the Entelect Challenge has been South Africa’s premier coding competition. The idea was started by our staff who wanted to drive community engagement through a little competition. Little did we know that this challenge would become so huge. Years later, it is a national event with a total prize value over R200k, and still going strong.

 

The objective of the Entelect Challenge is for entrants to compete against each other by writing an AI program that can creatively and strategically outsmart and out-survive their opponents.

 

Back at the ranch, a team of Entelect employees run the whole show; developing the creative idea, launching it to the public, developing the player portal and forums, running the play-offs and hosting the final event at rAge. We’re always looking for new contributions and new ideas, so get involved!

 

DevDay

We host our own conference called DevDay which is organised, presented and attended by our people. DevDay is a fun day out of the office where the technologist, inventor, hobbyist, engineer or artist in you can come to the fore. The event is part showcase, part science show, part geek club, part makers club; offering a range of lightning talks on cutting-edge technologies as well as a variety of interactive exhibition stands where people can discover the latest creative innovations in technology.
