Save the date! Open School for Open Societies, Hackathon, Oct 12th, 2019
Ellinogermaniki Agogi in cooperation with Athena Institute, Helix- Hellenic Data Service and Open Technologies Alliance (GFOSS) are organising an Earthquake Hackathon in the framework of the International Conference “Open School for Open Societies, which will take place on the 10th of October 2019, at the premises of Ellinogermaniki Agogi in Pallini, Athens.
The event will be addressed both to non-experts and advanced users in order to develop and showcase innovative technical solutions to deal with earthquakes. Participants will have access to open data hosted by HELIX and recorded from 30 seismographs belonging to the network of SNAC that are installed in schools in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Israel, Bulgaria and Italy. Participants of this hackathon will be challenged to develop algorithms to quickly process and analyze the available seismographic data in order to identify signals of earthquakes and prompt warning alerts that could be transmitted to sites in major cities several crucial seconds before the advent of earthquakes. In other words, the hackathon can be regarded as a first stage in the development of a sophisticated Early Warning System.
