Data solutions have proven to be powerful catalyst for change. New technologies, such as the artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT) and applied data science in general, have shown their potential to effectively address climate change through innovations such as forecasting solar power production, optimizing building heating and cooling systems, pinpointing deforestation from satellite imagery, and analysing corporate financial disclosures for climate-relevant information. Climate Data Hackathon aims to tap the talents and ingenuity of data practitioners and students in India to leverage data science to create innovations that lead us to the sustainable world we all want!
This edition of Climate Data Hackathon will be a three-week design sprint focused on “Climate Resilient Agriculture”. Are you a student with background in Data Science or Agriculture or Environmental Science? Do you want to help find data-driven solutions for climate resilient agriculture? Do you think you can help find a business case for such solutions? Then this Hackathon is for you!
The teams have three weeks to apply frontier data technologies to define and ideate solutions that can help enhance the resilience of Indian agriculture (covering crops, livestock and fisheries) to climatic variability and climate change.
