What is DataHack?

DataHack is the first data-driven hackathon in Israel, designed to bring together the Israeli data community. The hackathon is a 48-hours event where data enthusiatic programmers, designers and researchers combine their skills to build innovative solutions for real world problems.

Registration is open to all, but applications will be carefully reviewed for skills and experience. Participants may form teams of up to 5 people, and will have complete freedom selecting data, tools, and project ideas.


Information for participants

Participants will be chosen based on experience, skills and diversity criteria. Here are the basics:


Jerusalem! An exact location will be announced soon.


DataHack is all about data. Every project is required to have processing and/or analysis of some interesting data at its core. It can be a machine learning algorithm, a statistical analysis or producing deep insights automatically with data mining techniques.


The event will take place between Wednesday afternoon, September 21st and Friday afternoon, September 23rd, 2016.


Registration to the event is open to all - students, researches, designers and industry professionals. Teams of up to 5 people may register.
