The Comillas-ICAI Chair for Smart Industry (CIC, in Spanish) organized, together with Prosegur, the sponsoring company, the Fouth Hackathon for Smart Industry, which was held in an on-line format this year. More than 50 participants, divided into eight teams, worked to provide an innovative response to the real challenge posed by the Area for Innovation at Prosegur: how to improve the efficiency of cash management of its “Prosegur Smart Cash” devices.
