Identifying and managing famine risks more effectively with AI Social Impact DataThon at Munich Re
VeranstaltungsortTHE LAB/ WERK 3
How can AI and Big Data help to record food crises and the life-threatening malnutrition in children that can then arise in some areas of the world? Everything will revolve around this issue at the Social Impact DataThon, which Munich Re, Welthungerhilfe, Microsoft and Social Impact Partners (SIP) are jointly organising.
The challenge for data scientists? They have 48 hours in which to work in a team to develop intelligent algorithms and data management systems that can exploit the potential of 3D point clouds for the work of relief organisations. The DataThon offers unique conditions for this. The teams can work with the 3D point clouds of 10,000 children, the cloud power of Microsoft Azure, leading data analytics tools, and Munich Re’s risk databases.
