Event description

Description

Want to fundamentally change the way we train and execute missions using data?
The Data Science Futures hackathon provides the opportunity to discover insights into military data and use these insights to save lives and improve mission operations.

Under a tight timeline, participants will band together to arrive at new discoveries and ways in which our military can make better decisions with the Mad Scientist data provided by the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). The Mad Scientist initiative focuses on disruptive technologies (sentient data, internet of sustainable energy, platform mergers, autonomous vs. unmanned, etc.), human dimension (cognitive potential, man-machine interface, genome sequencing, wearables, continuous diagnostics, performance enhancers), and megacities and dense urban areas (population-centric intelligence, invisible geography, hot zone robotics, avatars in the field, and the role of augmented and virtual reality in training).

When: November 27-30, 2017. The hackathon will occur throughout I/ITSEC culminating in an awards presentation during the “Big Data & M&S” special event.

Who: Anyone! – whether you’ve participated in a hackathon or not. Registration for I/ITSEC is not required to participate.

Why: The Army uses key findings and recommendations to advance understanding of the future and innovate more rapidly. As the Army faces unparalleled complexities in the future operating environment, such initiatives can ensure the future readiness of the Army and also of the entire joint force.

Now the only question is, how can YOU help solve the DoD's most challenging problems?


All participants will receive entrance into the I/ITSEC exhibit hall, and will be eligible to win prizes.


Thank you to our sponsors: U.S. Army, NTSA, Microsoft, Samsung, NVIDIA
