Big Data Visualization Hackathon: 'Making the healthy choice in any environment'

Philips Design invites you to participate in this exciting Hackathon where the focus will be on creating interactive visualizations for any type of device (TV, tablet, smartphone etc.) based on health and well being datasets.

Examples of visualizations that would fulfill the purpose of 'making healthy choices in any environments' are; an interactive visualization that shows which part of the city is the safest and/or healthiest to live in , a visualization that summarizes the best healthcare center for each disease, or a visualization of the stressiest locations in the world? We challenge you to get creative with this topic!

If you want to build an interactive (or even real time) visualization like this, are creative enough to create your own useful combination of data with awesome results, and enjoy having fun with other creative people, social nerds, datascientist etc. come join us for this hackathon on October 12 and October 13.

Regarding the data sets: We will supply a broad range of datasets, but you can use your own as long as you are allowed to use them! More information about the datasets will follow soon.

Look for a good overview of the themes and a dataset selection, at this page: http://www.meetup.com/hackathonyes/pages/Overview_themes_and_proposed_datasets/

Hard- and software: Bring your own necessary equipment, hard- and software tools. We supply power and Internet (and drinks and food obviously).

At the end of the Hackathon a jury will judge your interactive visualizations.

 The following prizes are available for the teams:

- Overall € 1000,-.

- Best Concept € 500,-.

- Best Implementation € 500,-.

By participating in this Hackathon you allow Philips Design to publish your visualizations under the Creative Commons attribution 3.0 License.

We expect max. 70 participants, who will work in teams of around 2-6 individuals.

    It was an enormous task to chase all winners for what they selected as their price. Then some articles were not available anymore in our Philips Shop etc etc It was almost a day-task of Anja to get the job done. This is way its so late but still we hope you enjoy it a lot. Wish you happy holiday and hope to see you again.

      Thank you Jeanne. I didn't put the message up, to pressure you in any way. I'm looking forward to next year's hackathon :)

    Dear all, did you already receive your LED light bulb? I'm still waiting for mine. Just wondering whether I made a mistake and did not send in the document correctly.

    December 18, 2012

    • Joost P.

      Just received mine today! I think they will be in your mail any day :)

      December 18, 2012

    • Remco M.

      I didn't put it as a priority either, but as I was organizing on- and offline stuff, I stumbled upon it. Anyway, good to hear that it's not just me.

      For now there is a very short ambiance clip that I can share with you via flickr but we are going to make a longer version with all results in it.

    A collection of young and old(ish) people in teams (2 to 7 people) working on getting big (open) data visualized. Learned that working with nerds and geeks is a garanty that the job gets done. Met interesting people.

    Will there be breakfast tomorrow morning during registration?

      Sorry Sjors, tomorrow there is no breakfast planned.

      October 11, 2012

  • Boy Z.

    is there a copyright on the things you make?
    because I'm asked to show 'mine' input and group visualization to some teachers..

    Is it possible to stay over for the night? If so, what facilities are available?

    September 30, 2012

    • Esther W.

      Unfortunately it is not possible to stay the night over at Philips Design. Venue will close at 24.00 hrs.

    • Pieter H.

  • Steve M.

    Exciting topic.. can't wait to see what people come up with. Question: Are teams going to be built with complementary skills? I can draw pictures but if I have to program anything, we will be waiting a long-time :-)

    September 20, 2012

    • Pieter H.

      Hi Steve,

      September 20, 2012

    • Pieter H.

      Hi Steve, good question. You can create your own team with complementary skills before the hackathon will start. Ask the other registered hackers to join your team with your idea, but we have at the start from the two days the possibility to pitch your idea and create your team.

      September 20, 2012

  • Pieter H.

    The Hackathon program has changed. There will be some awesome presentations added.

    September 19, 2012

  • Pieter H.

    I posted two links about big data in hospitals, see the message board.

    September 18, 2012

  • Jeanne

    In the first place you need to be creative ;-) Look at data, analyze it and be able to transform it into a something that brings value to people's life. The outcome can also be a concept as long as your intentions for the concept can be expressed clearly.

    What level of skills/experience is required to be able to participate in this event?

    September 6, 2012

    • Pieter H.

      Hi Dina, great that you have joined our group. It depends whether you will work on your own, or become part of a team. At least you need to be able to work with datasets, have basic software programm skills.

      September 6, 2012

    • Pieter H.

      And most important enthousiasm to create great visualiszations and creative solutions.

      September 6, 2012

  • Pieter H.

    Tomorrow we will have a meeting about the data sets for the hackathon. Any suggestions?
