Event description

Description

Pitt Cyber, the School of Computing and Information, and GSPIA’s Ford Institute for Human Security are hosting a multidisciplinary hackathon. At Pitt, we believe that no one discipline has a lock on effective solutions to big problems. This is why we’re announcing our first annual Hacking4Humanity event.

Each year, we’ll pick seemingly intractable problems that call out for solutions from across disciplines—and ask you, the students, to dive in.

This year’s problem – Human Trafficking

Challenge scenarios, developed by GSPIA students, will be shared at the event to guide the development of teams' hacks, and include problems related to:

  • Raising awareness
  • Prosecuting perpetrators
  • Supporting survivors

Goal: Develop a tool to combat human trafficking and/or assist survivors.
