DataThrone – From Insights to Intelligence, a Data Science, AI and ML Hackathon was organized by Lucent Innovation and WebOccult Technologies at L.J University on 16th and 17th March 2024.  

The event was a dynamic and triumphant affair, witnessing over 250+ participants showcasing their exceptional talents. This prestigious event, organized by Lucent Innovation and WebOccult Technologies, wasn’t just about competition – it was about collaboration, pushing boundaries, and forging groundbreaking solutions to real-world problems. 


DataThrone 2024 was created specifically for current, pre-final and final-year IT, diploma, and engineering students. Furthermore, those with 0–4 years of industry experience were eligible to participate in the event.


Lucent Innovation was proud to spearhead DataThrone 2024. This elite competition served as a strategic framework for Data Science enthusiasts. It was a 36-hour non-stop event, filled with esteemed dignitaries, special judges, mentors, exciting sponsors, media partners (TOI) and enthusiastic participants. 


The day began with a grand opening ceremony graced by prominent dignitaries such as Mr. Narasimha Komar (IPS), who was the guest of honor, Prof. Dinesh Awasthi (Vice Chancellor of L.J. University), Dr. Manishbhai Shah (President, LJK Trust), Sh. Rohitbhai Patel (Academic Advisor of L.J. University). The event began when the dignitaries and members of our founding team—Mr. Ashish Kasama (Co-founder of Lucent Innovation), Mr. Nitesh Kasma (Co-founder of Lucent Innovation), Mr. Ruchir Kakkad, CEO of WebOccult Technologies, and Ms. Disha Joshi, CFO of WebOccult Technologies, Bhumin Vadalia (Marketing Director of WebOccult Technologies)—lit a ceremonial lamp! 

With lightning speed, classrooms were allocated to participants, and the competition kicked off. As night fell, a well-earned musical break gave everyone an opportunity to recharge before they prepared for the next leg of the coding marathon.

As participants hurried to complete their solutions, the second day saw a coding frenzy. Everyone was pushing themselves to the limit to finish and turn in their projects on time, and there was a fierce competitive spirit in the air. Mentors moved between groups, providing valuable guidance, answering queries, and boosting morale. Tension increased as the submission deadline drew near. 

Ten teams were further selected after a difficult evaluation procedure, and they received the opportunity to present their work to the judges at the closing ceremony. Three teams finally emerged victorious, earning the much-coveted top prizes from this exclusive group.


Prizes were awarded in a tiered method at the DataThrone event. With an impressive “Rs 51,000” prize for the top spot, victory was firmly established. Following closely, second place earned a notable “Rs 21,000” reward. Third place also received recognition with a commendable “Rs 11,000” prize, highlighting the event’s dedication to celebrating excellence among its participants.
