Natural Disaster Preparedness Hackathon
Location: Duffield Hall
Date: August 30th – September 1st
2017 was one of the worst years on record for natural disasters. While weather events may be inevitable, they don’t have to become so catastrophic. 2.5 billion people have been directly affected since 2000 and there has been $1.5 trillion of economic impact since 2003. In collaboration with IBM, the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering is hosting a hackathon on August 30th – September 1st at Duffield Hall to bring together the Cornell community to tackle challenges associated with natural disasters. This hackathon is part of a larger effort called the Call for Code Global Challenge to create solutions that significantly improve preparedness for natural disasters and relief when they hit. At the end of the hackathon, we will select first, second, and third place winners. All teams will also have the opportunity to submit their project nationally to win a grand prize of $200,000 USD, long-term open source project support from The Linux Foundation, and the opportunity to deploy your solution with an IBM Corporate Service Corps team.
Please RSVP here and email aki2@cornell.edu with any questions.
