CALLING ALL DEVELOPERS .... JOIN THE BIG DATA FOR SOCIAL GOOD CHALLENGE
Big data exists in just about everything we use and do. It comes from phones, cars, roads, power lines, waterways, food crates, and innumerable other items you’d never think of as computers. This data speaks volumes about our collective behavior and society – so let’s use it to do something incredible! IBM invites developers and data enthusiasts to take a deep dive into real world civic issues using big data and the IBM Bluemix Analytics for Hadoop service (https://console.ng.bluemix.net/). Analyze one of our curated datasets or bring your own! Use Hadoop and your data to create a clickable and interactive data visualization to highlight insights that you’ve found.
Ready to get started? $40,000 in prizes will be awarded....
