As the world evolves, there are significant observable effects of climate change on the environment. Glaciers are melting and shrinking, sea levels are rising, the oceans are warming, and droughts are becoming more frequent and severe.
The University of Florida, IBM, and the Florida Tech Council are looking for people who want to be part of the solution.
At this hackathon, we are asking you to combat climate change and create solutions that make a difference while utilizing IBM technologies, AI/ML, and/or responsible AI. Tackle sustainability issues and compete for a share of the $100k prize pool, including a $30k grand prize.
In 6 weeks, September 13 through October 22, you and your team will build an application in one of 6 challenge areas that can change the world by using IBM AI and machine learning technologies and with support by leaders in technology and climate from the University of Florida, IBM, and other partner organizations.
As a hackathon participant, you will be provided with $200 in cloud credits to access to all of IBM’s services on the cloud.
