The Hackathon

36 HOURS: 100+ DEVELOPERS, DESIGNERS, DOMAIN EXPERTS WILL convene to build COMMERCIALLY VIABLE SOLUTIONS FOR THE MARITIME INDUSTRY.

From shipboard navigation, engineering, and cargo handling systems, to port and intermodal operations, through cargo and logistics technologies - big data offers significant opportunities to enhance operational and environmental safety, increase efficiency, and improve reliability and visibility in commerce. But the increasing reliance on data also presents challenges to security, standardization, and interoperability.

Participants will have rare access to top maritime industry and tech executives, investors and entrepreneurs so they can effectively work on building MVPs for commercially viable solutions.

Hackathon participants will have access to public, private and exclusive industry data sets. Problems participants may tackle include:

  • How can machine learning and data analytics be used to optimize energy consumption, reduce emissions, and provide savings?

  • How can the marine transportation incorporate IoT?

  • Can we make shipping units smart with GPS tracking, IoT, and transceivers?

  • Can we use Predictive Analytics or Machine Learning to shorten the time an ocean shipment goes from origin to destination?

Grand prize winners will be offered a cash sum, plus a unique chance to participate in the inaugural NYMIC Bootcamp Accelerator and work with industry execs and investors to grow their solutions for market-readiness.
