Big Data Visualization Message Board › Data Visualization Hackathon @ Philips Design a big success!
On October 12 and 13, Philips Design hosted a Hackathon on Big Data visualization.
A mix of creative people, social nerds and data scientists formed ten multi-disciplinary working teams, taking up the challenge to create unique visualizations based on health and well-being big-datasets.
After an intense 36-hour session, the teams presented their amazing web applications and apps. One team actually used a special LED matrix to interactively visualize the datasets!

• Bronze award: Jungle Minds
Congratulations, winners and thank you all for making this first Hackathon a big success! We look forward to meeting you again at the next Hackathon!
