Smart city challenges to be tackled at >sudo : city hackathon at Allia Future Business Centre
A 48-hour smart city hackathon will held at the Allia Future Business Centre in Cambridge on May 11-12.
Hosted by Cambridge Applied Research (CAR) in partnership with data firm Alchera Technologies, the >sudo : city hackathon will bring together those with knowledge and expertise in the fields of transport and technology to solve the infrastructure challenges of growing cities like Cambridge.
From basic app ideas to deep tech prototypes, participants will develop concepts to solve topical challenges and present them to judges on the final afternoon.
While there is plenty of data available in cities now - from rush hour statistics to air quality, there are limited useful applications for the data.
Joned Sarwar, technical lead at Cambridge-based Alchera, said: “At Alchera we design, develop and deploy a real-time data platform to make infrastructure intelligent
“A hackathon promises to stimulate new thinking in a short time frame and so by bringing together people that are passionate about solving problems we hope to generate some innovative ideas and educate about new ways to approach building a smart city.”
