“It is exactly the dataset that makes this hackathon unique. It offers options for mathematics – or even design and business – students to create something too.”
Daniel Vos of study association Christiaan Huygens is one of the ‘HackDelft’ organizers. The hackathon will take place on 13 May and he would like to place a call out to all EEMCS lecturers to encourage their students to participate. Sign-up is open until 20 April on www.hackdelft.com.
Daniel: “Four of our partner companies deliver a dataset that we can work with. It is exactly the dataset that makes this hackathon unique. In most cases companies just deliver the API’s where only computer science students can work with. Datasets offer options for mathematics – or even design and business – students to create something too. Out of all the applications we select 35 computer science students (CH), 15 mathematics students (CH) and there are 50 spots reserved for students of other faculties or institutions. Students from a university of applied sciences are also welcome to join, just like young PhD-students. So there are 100 participants in total divided into 25 or 30 teams. The team with the most innovative solution wins. This will be decided by a jury with, to name one member, a representative from YES! Delft."
