The TOP12 Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia Pro­pos­als

After all the excite­ment of the Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia Demo Day we want to share with you the pro­pos­als, not only of the final­ists, but also of the twelve teams whose pro­pos­als the Jury thought were very good and had enor­mous dif­fi­culty in leav­ing out of the final list.

Here you have the list of the TOP12 pro­pos­als:

— Huevo Team (Winner) —

(Inde­pen­dent Team. Lon­don, UK)

Pro­posal: Engi­neer­ing Serendip­ity for the culinary world

The objec­tive of our pro­posal is to enable a bet­ter inter­ac­tion of the Bul­li­pedia users with the vast amount of data col­lected. But not only with data that they will be look­ing for, but with the adja­cent related data that could spark new ideas. There­fore, cre­at­ing a plat­form to engi­neer serendip­ity; enabling unfore­seen con­nec­tions between peo­ple, tech­niques, prod­ucts, tech­nol­ogy, cul­ture and more.

Team mem­bers: Gon­zalo Gon­za­lez, Alissa Harger

— Uni­ver­sity of Cam­bridge Team (TOP12

(Uni­ver­sity of Cam­bridge, UK)

Pro­posal: Fork­ing Recipes

Our goal is to fos­ter a more social and cre­ative culi­nary world by cre­at­ing a plat­form which both sim­pli­fies the cre­ation of recipes and pro­vides insight into food trends and influ­ence. This plat­form is com­posed of two com­ple­men­tary com­po­nents. The first, which records the lin­eage of recipes, pro­vides a struc­tured approach for look­ing at the his­tory and evo­lu­tion of cuisines as a whole. The sec­ond com­po­nent is a data-​driven toolset designed to help cooks– both ama­teur and pro­fes­sional - to cre­ate new recipes and mod­ify existing ones.

Gen­e­sis and Huevo Pro­gram­ming Lan­guage — the win­ners of the Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia Global Chal­lenge

Yes­ter­day, Novem­ber 27, the four Final­ist Teams of the Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia Chal­lenge (Author­ship Rep­u­ta­tion and Trust (ART), Huevo, Dig­i­tal Olfac­tion and Gus­ta­tion, and KEMLg) had the oppor­tu­nity to present and dis­cuss their pro­pos­als with the Jury of the Contest, formed by top tech­nol­o­gists, inno­va­tors and chefs, includ­ing Fer­ran Adrià and Pablo Rodriguez, Direc­tor of Research at Tele­fónica Digital.

HackingBullipediaWinners

After the great pitch ses­sion, the jury final deci­sion was unveiled and, once again, there was a big sur­prise: the jury decided to award two teams!!

The win­ners of this 1st Edi­tion of the Global Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia Chal­lenge are:

  • Huevo Team with the Huevo Pro­gram­ming Lan­guage Pro­posal (Fran­cisco Gonzalez-​Blanch and Pilar Fer­nan­dez, Inde­pen­dent Team, Madrid)

The chal­lenge: can you improve world-​class cre­ativ­ity of Bul­li­pedia?

The genius of elBulli, the best restau­rant in the world, led by leg­endary chef Fer­ran Adrià is being con­densed in Bul­li­pedia.
Bul­li­pedia is a repos­i­tory of all the gas­tro­nomic knowl­edge of elBulli as well as a gem of gas­tro­nomic prac­tice. It is also a big project to put tech­nol­ogy and design at the cen­ter of a cre­ativ­ity rev­o­lu­tion. Bul­li­pedia will be also an engine of cre­ativ­ity meth­ods and oper­a­tors to be shared and used by chefs but also by other cre­ative pro­fes­sion­als in the world. When think­ing about Bul­li­pedia the team of elBulli thought that there is just too much tal­ent around the world to go ahead alone.
So they invite you to start Hack­ing Bul­li­pedia while it is being built. Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia is the first edi­tion of Bul­li­pedia Global Chal­lenge. Help Adrià and Tele­fónica I+D build the most advanced com­pendium of cre­ative knowl­edge. This year the focus is to develop appli­ca­tions that help Bul­li­pedia grow into the best orga­nized knowl­edge base in the world.

What can you bring to Bul­li­pedia?

You can reg­is­ter for the Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia with your time to develop ideas, insights, designs, appli­ca­tions, visu­al­iza­tions, new forms of knowl­edge rep­re­sen­ta­tion an exploita­tion that address the main chal­lenges of Hack­in­Bul­li­pedia. Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia is a con­test that will start in Sep­tem­ber 2013. How­ever, you can start think­ing about what to do right now. It is your chance to bring your tal­ent to the cen­ter of the cre­ativ­ity revolution.

If you are inter­ested …

First reg­is­ter here and we will keep you updated about the impor­tant dates and upcom­ing events. Look for a pro­fes­sor at your uni­ver­sity and other fel­low stu­dents and reg­is­ter as a team. If you are not affil­i­ated with a Uni­ver­sity or Research Cen­ter you still can gather peo­ple that can do the work at the same world-​class level. A team can be very small: you decide whether you want to work with other cre­ative minds or go solo. In any case, don’t for­get that most of Bul­li­pedia chal­lenges require an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approach and solu­tion. From the moment you reg­is­ter as a team you can start to work on pro­to­typ­ing your pro­posal. Set up a ses­sion of brain­storm­ing and ideation and invite peo­ple. You can use posters in the Media Kit to let your poten­tial part­ners know about your gatherings.

Who can hack Bul­li­pedia?

Are you a stu­dent of com­puter sci­ence? Of Design? Visu­al­iza­tion of data is your thing? Do you know how to make things more intel­li­gent? Explore con­nec­tions between knowl­edge? Could you auto­mate cre­ativ­ity? Can you put some art into it? Do you dare to col­lab­o­rate to com­pete with the best minds around?
Bul­li­pedia is still in the mak­ing, a work in progress, so you can par­tic­i­pate with new ideas. The goal is to ben­e­fit of the inter­net and its ways of work­ing to build Bul­li­pedia. The chal­lenges to do so include search­ing, col­lect­ing, orga­niz­ing, index­ing, clas­si­fy­ing, orga­niz­ing, rep­re­sent­ing, pre­sent­ing and visu­al­iz­ing infor­ma­tion and knowl­edge from the inter­net and either use it in the con­struc­tion of Bul­li­pedia or inte­grat­ing it with the knowl­edge already present in Bul­li­pedia at any given moment.
Bul­li­pedia needs to address these chal­lenges in order to under­stand bet­ter gas­tron­omy, its cul­ture, the asso­ci­ated cre­ativ­ity but also in order to com­mu­ni­cate and share this knowl­edge by widely using inter­net and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies.
The envis­aged solu­tions to these chal­lenges should allow to recon­struct on demand deep knowl­edge about gas­tron­omy and cre­ativ­ity under dif­fer­ent cri­te­ria. Here are some pos­si­ble sce­nar­ios.

The Final­ists are…

Finally the Jury, after review­ing in great detail all pro­pos­als and con­sid­er­ing all their excel­lent qual­i­ti­ies has reached a con­clu­sion. This has been a longer than expected delib­er­a­tion that has been solved by aug­ment­ing the num­ber of final­ists to reflect the equiv­a­lence in qual­ity of the pro­pos­als. Instead of three final­ists there are four!. 

Here they are in no par­tic­u­lar order. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all of them!. Also to the rest of the par­tic­i­pants. It was no easy task to select the best among the 30+ pro­pos­als received from three con­ti­nents with a 50 – 50 mix of uni­ver­sity and inde­pen­dent teams.

Huevo pro­gram­ming lan­guage
(Inde­pen­dent Team. Madrid. Spain.)

We imag­ine cook­ing as a pro­gram­ming lan­guage. In this con­text we could under­stand Bul­li­pedia as a code repos­i­tory. In this work we want to pro­pose a def­i­n­i­tion of “Huevo” a cook­ing pro­gram­ming lan­guage. How new pro­grams will be cre­ated, how the will be stored in Bul­li­pedia and how they will be com­piled and exe­cuted in a kitchen by a group of cooks.

We pro­pose the novel meth­ods of dig­i­tal olfac­tion and gus­ta­tion as input and out­put for inter­net inter­ac­tion, specif­i­cally for cre­at­ing and expe­ri­enc­ing dig­i­tal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of food, cook­ing, and recipes on the Bullipedia.

Team mem­bers: Adrian Cheok, Jor­dan Tewell, Olivier Oullier, Yong­soon Choi

GEN­E­SIS.
(Uni­ver­si­tat Politec­nica de Catalunya-​BarcelonaTech)

Gen­e­sis is an intel­li­gent sys­tem specif­i­cally designed to help the cre­ative team to fol­low how cre­ativ­ity hap­pens in Bul­li­pedia, iden­ti­fy­ing rel­e­vant cre­ations, show­ing evo­lu­tion of cre­ations, find­ing promis­ing unex­plored paths for future cre­ative activ­i­ties by reduc­ing the enor­mous energy and resources cur­rently devoted to explore and develop. 

Team mem­bers: Karina Gib­ert, Javier Vázquez, Beat­riz Sevilla, Ser­gio Álvarez, Arturo Tejeda, Luis Oliva, Ignasi Gómez-​Sebastià. 

We received entries from all around the world, from both uni­ver­sity and inde­pen­dent teams, from groups and indi­vid­ual minds. Sci­en­tists, Chefs, Design­ers, Food­ies, Data visu­al­iza­tion Experts, Artists.… Peo­ple from all kinds of back­grounds.… Mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary, as we like it!! 

Really great pro­pos­als came to our hands! As you can imag­ine, it was not, at all, an easy deci­sion! Our judges –all undis­puted experts from the Culi­nary and Tech­nol­ogy fields– combed through over all the sub­mis­sions and chose these 4 final­ists, as the ones that best fit­ted with what we expected for this 1st Hack­ing­Bul­li­pedia Global Challenge!

Now… What’s com­ing up next?

Two mem­bers of each one of these 4 teams will come to Barcelona for the final com­pe­ti­tion. Here, they will have to pitch their pro­pos­als and the Jury will then choose the big winner!!

Many thanks to every­one who entered and, of course, to the judges. 

We hope you all enjoyed Being Part of It!!
