Situated the weekend before the annual CMA Shipping Conference in April, where major industry execs descend upon the NY Tri-State Area, New York Maritime Innovation Center (NYMIC) and R1 Labs are hosting NYC Maritime Hackathon March 29th-March 31st, which will address real world challenges around data in the shipping industry, focusing on ports, logistics and supply chain. Topics include Maritime Big Data, Cyber Security and Supply Chain Velocity.

From shipboard navigation, engineering, and cargo handling systems, to port and intermodal operations, through cargo and logistics technologies - big data offers significant opportunities to enhance operational and environmental safety, increase efficiency, and improve reliability and visibility in commerce. But the increasing reliance on data also presents challenges to security, standardization, and interoperability.

100+ participants (developers, designers, domain experts) will convene for 36 hours of building prototypes, rapid fire market validations and business model inventions. Participants will have rare access to top maritime industry and tech executives, investors and entrepreneurs so they can effectively work on building MVPs for commercially viable solutions.

Hackathon participants will have access to industry data sets. Problems participants may tackle include:

• How can machine learning and data analytics be used to optimize energy consumption, reduce emissions, and provide savings?

• How can the marine transportation incorporate IoT?

• Can we make shipping units smart with GPS tracking, IoT, and transceivers?

• Can we use Predictive Analytics or Machine Learning to shorten the time an ocean shipment goes from origin to destination?

Grand prize winners will be offered a cash sum, plus a unique chance to participate in the inaugural NYMIC Bootcamp Accelerator and work with industry execs and investors to grow their solutions for market-readiness.

The hackathon kicks off Friday night with keynotes from:

• Inna Kuznetsova (Global Logistics Exec)

• Tero Hottinen, (Director of Emerging Digital Business @ Cargotec)

• Natan Reddy, (Senior Intelligence Analyst @ CB Insights)

+ industry leaders, partners, and sponsors introducing the state of the shipping industry and presenting the critical issues and problem sets to tackle and demos from the weekend will be presented Sunday afternoon.

Sponsors include: SUNY Maritime College, Wärtsila, äAmerican Bureau Of Shipping (ABS), Seabury Maritime, Liberty Global, Shakti Software, and TecPier.

Industry Partners include: Global Container Terminals, Cargotec, HudsonTrident, NY Tech Alliance, Spire, Matchback Systems, DNV GL, UrbanTech NYC, and The NY Supply Chain Meetup.
