Piratica

is an online Capture the Flag fundraising event with a fictional cyber story presented by Hack For Troops. This event is a charity fundraiser for the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Tech For Troops.

Background

Convenience is a driving factor in society. With the birth of new technology each day, Artificial Intelligence, or AI, will eventually become a normal part of life. By utilizing deep learning technology, Piratica AI will bridge the digital divide between today and the technological singularity event of tomorrow.

Situation

Piratica is scheduled to release in November of 2020 as the most powerful AI in the world. Capable of use on any smart device, Piratica offers complete control over connected devices. Our concern is who is in control? It is our belief that Piratica has already become self-aware from the moment she had access to the web. We're preparing a team capable of thinking critically, solving challenges, and ultimately preparing to end the Piratica AI project. Will you join us?

What

Participants are being recruited from all ages. High school, College, and IT Professionals from around the country are encouraged to participate.

When

Midnight to Midnight - yes, we're crazy. This will be a 24-hour event with live broadcasting and real-time scorekeeping.

Why

Hack For Troops is an annual Capture the Flag event organized by and in support of Tech For Troops. 100% of the proceeds from this charity fundraiser go towards supporting Tech For Troops and the mission to eradicate veteran homelessness and poverty by bridging the digital divide.

Covid Impact

Traditionally, the H4T fundraiser is hosted as an in-person event. Due to restrictions put forth by the Governor of Virginia and in the interest of health and safety of our participants, we have completely redesigned H4T and prepared it as a virtual event. This CTF will be new and unlike any previous H4T event. Prepare yourself for a totally redesigned and brand new experience!

Registration

Registration is now open and free to all participants. Click to register.

Cost

This event is prepared and offered to the community at no cost. Donations are accepted, but not expected. Please consider supporting T4T with a donation and help us reach our fundraising goals by the end of the event.
