What models, methods and software can be used for predicting fertility of boar semen? This is the central theme of the two day hackathon organised by Breed4Food. It will be centred around methods and modelling. We will work with real data from the 'field', and have the opportunity to share our ideas with likeminded data-enthusiasts. Model admirers from the enterprises will be there to answer your questions where it comes to the practical side of livestock business.
For this challenge we are mobilizing teams consisting of data wizards and researchers (PhDs, postdocs) who want to apply their magic to field data to solve real time problems in the livestock domain. This hackathon offers you a unique opportunity to work and meet commercial companies and data anlaytics.
