PolyFintech 100 API Hackathon 2023, held on 29 July 2023, has once again proven to be an outstanding platform for our students to acquire essential fintech skills. Over 400 students participated, showcasing their ingenuity across categories like Decentralised Finance, Tokenization for Real-World Assets, RegTech, InsurTech, and Generative AI.

The SoC team emerged as the Category Champion in the highly competitive Generative AI category! Their dedication and innovative approach earned them not only the prestigious title but also a grand prize of S$2,500. They have secured a spot in the Grand Finals at the esteemed Singapore FinTech Festival 2023, and caught the attention of Singlife for a presentation at their premises.

The team’s ground-breaking solution, "SINGen," harnesses the power of a custom Large Language Model (LLM) to deliver personalized 15-30 second infomercials, bridging the gap between individual attention spans and complex insurance information, empowering Engagement and Education in the Insurance Industry.
