Have you thought about how AI will change healthcare in the next years?

Maybe you have developed solutions with elements of AI or are full of ideas on how healthcare solutions could be improved. Maybe you are curious about healthcare challenges and eager to solve them. If so, this hackathon could be for you.

In today’s world, healthcare is facing new and unprecedented challenges. At the same time, technology has never played such a significant role when it comes to assisting healthcare professionals and their patients.

This hackathon is an AI-driven tribute to the healthcare sector – hosted and organized by Stratiteq, in partnership with Microsoft. The challenges will be presented by leading Healthcare Institutions across Europe.

We anticipate that these participating institutions will present challenges that, on an overall level, are about making it easier to collect, analyze and visualize data. Everything that is essential to make the right decisions, quickly.

We are humbled by the insight that a journey towards personalized, predictive, preventive and participatory healthcare is long and complex. It requires deep understanding across healthcare constituencies of how AI systems can augment humans’ capabilities. But we should not be intimidated.

This hackathon is about coming up with solutions. Maybe it is about doing more of the same things or throwing the rule book out and trying completely new and different approaches. Bring some AI and show us the hack! The jury will be tough but fair.

Developers of all background and skills can register to participate in this hackathon. Your registration will be handled as an expression of interest, to be reviewed by the Hackathon team. Those with proven track records will be approved to participate.

The choice of technology is optional. Although we take the opportunity to inform you that temporary Microsoft Azure passes will be available.

Grab the rod of Asclepius and walk to the registration page.

Healthcare does not stand still.

 

The hackathon is organised and hosted by Stratiteq in partnership with Microsoft.
