In October we are organising a 32 hours hackathon on the future of Life Sciences. An event to ignite data- and tech-driven collaborations between students, tech entrepreneurs, researchers and domain experts. The purpose of the hackathon is to have creative (tech) talent from different universities and young professionals work on targeted challenges side by side with representatives of leading Dutch agri businesses.
The hackathon will be part of the pan European Smart Agri Hubs Program.
Plant scientists will meet front end developers, animal scientists will meet machine learning experts, and the other way around. Collaboratively we will wrangle data, build prototypes and code API’s to address pressing data issues from the life sciences domain.
The following companies will challenge you to help and cocreate solutions for challenges they are working on: Hendrix Genetics, Incotec, RVO and Lely - in collaboration with Rovecom. The coming weeks the challenges will be prepared and communicated. They will evolve around digital phenotyping, hacking existing feed algorithms and machine data.
