Are you a super coder who’s up for a serious challenge?

General Electrics (GE) is now on the search for Australia’s most talented coder or maths genius to solve a challenge set by its Tweeting Machines.

The competition

A few special GE machines in Australia have become particularly talkative lately. These ‘Tweeting Machines’ have taken to Twitter to chat, gossip and shoot the breeze in their native tongue – binary code.

Having captured the conversations of its Tweeting Machines and GE is looking for coders to uncover the hidden code to unlock a prize.

Utilising your coding skills and knowledge, solve the challenge by unlocking multiple zipped files to piece together the hidden code and complete the challenge.


The first person to solve this challenge will win a trip for two to San Francisco in September to attend the GE ‘Minds & Machines Conference’, an event where technology leaders will explore the opportunities in the next industrial era.


  • Challenge began 12 am AEST 21 May 2015.
  • Challenge ends when the challenge is first successfully completed or 5 pm AEST 13 August 2015, whichever occurs first.
