Stamford's second Hackathon: Come hack the IoT Corridor and World-Class AI!

Building on the success of the first Stamford Hackathon in Sept. 2015, the Stamford Innovation Center is proud to host and support the second Bi-Annual Stamford Hackathon, on February 19-21st

The hackathon will focus on a core theme of “Smart Cities,” referring to the growing set of technologies that help cities work better for their citizens and as organizations. The two technologies featured at the hackathon will be Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence.

The IoT Track will feature a first of its kind “IoT Corridor” consisting of sensors and 3D interactive map, all of which are publicly available to hackathon participants and local universities for the duration of the hackathon and beyond.

Artificial Intelligence is a new and exciting field, and the Stamford Hackathon will feature services from IBM’s Watson, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google’s machine learning offerings for participants to create useful, consumer-facing projects with a smart-cities application.
