The Emirates Travel Hackathon, an exciting 24-hour coding marathon, presented by the CMU Emirates Innovation Lab, offers a unique experience that brings together talented developers, designers and data scientests in teams to build new and innovative travel-centric solutions based on both web and mobile. Since 2013, more than one thousand hackers have participated in our hackathons around the world and have produced hundreds of hacks. The most innovative hacks won cash prizes and trips to our home Dubai.
This year the theme is ‘inspiring insights and personalised customer experiences with data, machine learning and AI’. Participants will be provided with a range of corporate data as well as we expect our partners to share APIs to their data sources as well share platforms to crunch and process this data. We expect participants to intersect this data with any other publicly available sources such as Google, Trip advisor, Facebook etc. and use your ingenuity to creative solutions aligned with the theme.
