Can you help #hackCambridge to tackle the city’s challenges?

Cambridge’s brainpower is being challenged to take part in a 24hr Hackathon to find ways of using technology to tackle the pressures facing the city as it grows.

Plans for over 33,000 houses to be built over the next 15 years will see an additional 50,000 people move into Cambridge and the surrounding area presenting an unprecedented challenge for the city.

Teams of hackers will work through the night using their tech skills and the city’s data to develop new ways to address the challenges to mobility, environment, heath and social care. The next morning they’ll pitch their ideas to a panel of experts who will award prizes for the best solutions.

The hackathon is part of #hackCambridge - a day of talks, workshops and activities being held at The Junction, Cambridge from 12 noon on Saturday 31 October to explore how technology and creative thinking can help to improve city life.

And it’s not just for techies – local residents can get involved through a workshop for non-techies, meet their mobile phone Data Shadow commissioned by Collusion and developed by multi-media artist Mark Farid, see Cambridge built in Minecraft and short films about the city’s inventors.
