Join us at a special workshop to learn how to use the MiPasa platform - an open, blockchain-based Open Data Hub that enables the development and deployment of data analysis, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence models to production in minutes.

For the Global Call for Code 2020 Hackathon participants, MiPasa will provide full access to COVID-19 datasets, Python code samples, Jupyter Notebooks and other relevant tools to develop your solution and solve some of the world’s most pressing issues.

About the Session
Learn how to use MiPasa to work collaboratively with public and private COVID-19 related datasets; create, test and share models, code and insights, even publish your creations with the world. It is our hope that you will be matched with top data scientists, peer innovators, developers, startup founders and investors, developing innovative approaches to the current crisis. Your goal will be to quickly come up with approaches to monitoring, diagnosing and controlling the Coronavirus.

Converting Data to Decisions is powerful: why not take it globally?
We will provide you full mentorship support on using your model or developing a solution for the global Call for Code 2020 hackathon, with amazing prizes this year: $200,000 for the grand prize, $25,000 for the first and second, and $10,000 for the third and fourth places.

Agenda
17:00-17:30 How crisis drives technological innovation
17:30-18:30 Using MiPasa’s Data Analysis for Making Informed Decisions in the fight against COVID-19. From code to results in 5 mins.

About HACERA
Founded in 2016, HACERA develops distributed, blockchain-powered novel products, technologies and platforms that are fueling some of the world’s most valuable financial and supply-chain networks today with Secure Multi-party Data & Digital Asset Exchange at Scale.
HACERA was founded by Jonathan Levi, shortly after leaving IBM Research, where he was in charge of the Identity and Privacy of the Open BlockChain (OBP) project, which was open-sourced as Hyperledger Fabric, the most widely used enterprise blockchain framework.
HACERA and IBM co-managed the development and the release of Hyperledger Fabric 1.0, the world’s leading enterprise blockchain, which was developed by 159 developers and 27 organizations in 2017. A year later, HACERA released the world’s largest decentralized interoperability platform (the Unbounded Network), which allows private and permissioned chains to start interacting with other projects, on different blockchains, using (legal) tokenization schemes. HACERA is also part of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, is a launch member of the InterWork Alliance (along with NASDAQ, DTCC, IBM and others), and our CEO, Jonathan Levi, is the chair of the Token Taxonomy Framework (TTF). During the crisis of the century, HACERA and its partners created the platform “MiPasa - Because I Care”, to help people and organizations around the world work with multiple sources of data, collaborate and communicate better, educate and share information with confidence, in a timely manner and on a global scale.
