All blue economy (marine, fisheries, underwater) enthusiasts: data scientists and practitioners,
students, researchers, representatives from both private and public sector, that work to improve the
fisheries, marine, underwater and environmental management with applications in energy, geohazards management,
underwater archaeology, or develop ICT solutions for marine, underwater monitoring are invited to join the
hackathon co-organised by the
NEANIAS, I4Sea and INFORE
projects from April 21 to 23, 2021, online.
The event is kindly supported by ATHENA RC
During the 2-day hackathon the participants will brainstorm (compete, work) on the following four challenges:
Vessel navigation pattern detection of sets of vessels that have similar characteristics in terms of location area and way of moving
Vessel future location prediction involving the design and implementation of ML solutions
On-line Image Annotation Tool for Underwater Images
Submarine cable route design and path planning
The main challenge of this hackathon is to fuel new thinking in the holistic analysis of satellite, bathymetric,
AIS, environmental, meteorological, fisheries and archaeological data and the interactions between fisheries, and the marine traffic.
Copernicus, EMODnet, NEANIAS, i4sea, INFORE, FAO, Eurostat, Natura2000, AIS data from Marine Traffic are among the relevant datasets that will be made available.
The expected outcome will include a vision to cope with a wide range of topics in the Blue Economy area such as:
Machine learning techniques and prediction models in marine traffic
Detection models in vessels of similar characteristics in terms of location area and way of moving
Interaction tools for Blue Economy resources
Potential business models/cases in energy or gas/oil sector
The event is of particular interest for students, master students, PhD students, post docs, early career researchers, SMEs, scientists and experts from start-ups.
Join this innovative tools oriented hackathon to apply your knowledge, challenge yourself in the hands-on competition and gain new skills! Prizes are also included!
