Event description

Description

The European Data Innovation Hub is organizing an open data4good hackathon that focuses on using data science to combat the spread of the dengue virus.  The initiative is sponsored by Janssen, The Pharmaceutical Company of Johnson & Johnson.

We are calling out to all experts to share their data, ideas  and skills.

The challenge:

Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne viral infection. Potentially lethal, dengue is a flu-like illness that nearly half the world's population is at risk of contracting. There is no specific treatment currently available.

The challenge is to tap into private and public datasets to generate new insights and improve our understanding of this infection.

Objective:

The objective of this data4good hackathon is to help fight the global burden of dengue fever and raise awareness about the risks of the virus.

The purpose is to gather private and public datasets together, and through the creative use of technology and big data, we can generate new insights into the dengue virus and improve our understanding of its spread.

During the data4good hackathon, you will be presented with these challenges:

  1. Assessing factors influencing the dengue spread.
  2. Predicting of the next outbreak.
  3. Visualizing the dengue virus's spread.
  4. Mapping the research field.
