The hackathon event for all data scientists, machine learning engineers and data-driven coders in northern Germany and beyond.

On June 5 and 6, 2020, the Waterkant Festival and Kiel.AI bring the tech and coder scene together for a unique online hackathon event under the patronage of the State Chancellery of Schleswig-Holstein. With the focus on data science and AI, participants can develop projects on real data, which is typically not publicly available. These projects are fired by data from public administrations, research institutions or private organizations such as Windfinder, delivering worldwide prognostics for surf spots, or Sprottenflotte, a regional bike sharing service.
