The first and biggest community of Data Scientists and AI experts in The Hague. We host industry presentations, workshops, hackathons, and open innovation programs. All focused on AI and its effects on business and everyday life.
During the weekend of 26, 27, and 28 November, the fourth edition of the Hackathon for Good will occur. This edition is hosted by the city of The Hague and organized by The Hague Tech, in close collaboration with the Hague’s innovation ecosystems.
Hackathon for Good started in The Hague with the mission to connect AI and Data to the world of Humanitarian Development and Aid. After two successful editions by Data Science Initiative, we slightly broaden our scope with more topics, more partners, and the first international editions coming up. But every edition always has a touch of ethics & data.
The Hackathon for Good is a year-round online program with a selection of Support meetups and skill sessions leading up to the hackathon weekend.
