Hackathon + HUBweek!
The Hackathon and MIT's Institute for Data, Systems, and Society are excited to be partnering with HUBweek, a leading ideas festival founded by institutions from the greater Boston area. We're running a special version of our hackathon focused on HUBweek's theme: "We the Future."
What topics are being covered during the Hackathon?
We're excited to be working with the City of Boston on challenges that impact communities and citizens in the area. Specifically, we're focusing on three challenges that involve the:
Future of Cities: analyzing data from Boston 311 and Vision Zero for safe and inclusive transportation while remaining responsive to the needs of citizens
Future of Health: seeing how we can better understand public health issues at the intersection of climate change and health
Future of Work: looking at how the Boston area can support future modes of work with empowerment and inclusion
More information (and challenge write-ups) will be available soon!
When is it?
We start as part of HUBweek Open Doors at 9:30am on October 8.
The hackathon is open to all, but we strongly recommend being available on the 9th to work with your team and on the 12th at 5PM for the closing ceremony!
