DESCRIPTION/ABSTRACT:

The UC San Diego community is invited to compete in a hackathon to develop smart new applications that take advantage of the City of San Diego's deployment of urban sensor and the stream of data coming from them.

The City of San Diego recently announced the world’s largest Internet of Things platform deployment to help the City improve community safety, reduce parking gridlock, recognize pedestrian patterns, and provide greater situational awareness; all while enhancing everyday life for citizens through insights and solutions built with real-time sensor data.  As a participant in the Smart Cities San Diego Hackathon, you’ll compete for $3,500 in prizes and be one of the first developers to leverage and build Industrial Internet of Things applications powered by the Predix platform. You’ll also get free access to GE CityIQ’s real-world datasets, Intelligent Cities APIs, engineering support, and developer resources for the life of the hackathon.  Prize winners must incorporate use of at least one CityIQ Intelligent Cities APIs.

Join us to explore how an application using real-time data from the thousands of CityIQ nodes throughout the City of San Diego will help solve problems with traffic, parking, public safety, urban planning, and environmental challenges. Cleantech San Diego, CyberTECH, City of San Diego, GE, AT&T, and Intel invite you to join us during San Diego Startup Week for the Smart Cities San Diego Hackathon.
