About the DMBI Data Hackathon

This year, the SISE DMBI annual conference will be preceded by a Data Hackathon for leveraging the utilization of advanced machine learning and deep learning algorithms and techniques for solving real world challenges.
The hackathon is planned to be a 30-hours event where data enthusiastic programmers, designers and  researchers combine their skills to build innovative solutions for real world problems aiming at empowering our society.

The hackathon will include practical tutorials from senior data-scientists from various fields.


The winners will be announced at the conference.

**Please note that the DMBI conference registration is done separately in the DMBI conference website
