We are super excited about this Nerdy Movie Night! We'll be showing a documentary that we filmed in-house during a hackathon between subject matter experts and Exaptive data scientists last year.
"Hackathon" (37 minutes, 2018) is a story about the amazing things that can be accomplished when scientists and data scientists team up, and what kind of obstacles must be overcome to create tools that can contribute to scientific knowledge and research.
After the debut of the film, we'll have a brief panel with the executive producer and some of the people interviewed in the film. Then we'll ask the Data+Creativity crowd to talk about what kind of hackathons we would like to organize and participate in.
But wait! There's more. We're going to launch a Cognitive City for the Data+Creativity community! Exaptive's proprietary innovation platform is all about fostering collaboration. Exaptive is making the Cognitive City available for free to Data+Creativity to give back to the community and grow the opportunities for our community to participate in innovation.
We'll send out a link for our members to use to sign up in mid-April, and at the meetup on April 25, we'll do a quick demo of how to use the platform to capture ideas and create opportunities and build teams. It's a tool that can be used to connect the community between meetups as well!
As always, this free event will have free food and great discussion. See you there!
