Calling all developers, designers and entrepreneurs (or indeed anyone with curiosity and flare!).
Are you interested in building personalised online experiences without losing control over or the privacy of your personal data?
Then our Data Hack Iceland hackathon is for you!
Being held on October 7 and 8 in Reykjavík, Iceland, the #letsgetpersonal event will feature personalised data, health and social data challenges.
Two identified so far are the digi.me challenge: build a cool innovative app using digi.me’s Consent Access platform with a focus on health and finance as Dattaca Labs and digi.me make private sharing real.
There is also a Code for a Cause challenge, looking at how we can better use open or user contributed data to give deeper insights into or tackle social problems including unemployment and environmental issues, with others to follow.
Ideas will be judged on their fundability, execution, UI/UX, originality and scalability, and the prizes include the Icelandic Data Hack Trophy for the best solution, as well as a VIP tickets package worth $2000.
