I’m excited to announce the launch event for the diHack’s Dengue Hackathon, at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 11th at the European Data Innovation Hub. We’ll present the dengue challenge, give examples of of how data science can help stop the spread of dengue, provide information about coming events, and leave time for networking. You can view the event on meetup here.
There are over 390 million cases of Dengue fever every year, and half of the world is currently at risk of contracting the Dengue virus. We believe that if we get enough data and data scientists together, we can make a difference in stopping the disease’s spread.
You can check out our website here, and everyone is invited to the launch event. Don’t forget to share your data or ideas and sign up for the hackathon.
