DASA hackathons on real-time incident response and defence logistics; participants sought

Posted on: 29/10/2018

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) seeks participants for two hackathons in London.

The first hackathon on 26-27 November will focus on real-time incident response and the second will be a defence logistics hackathon, taking place on 29-30 November.  DASA is looking to bring together the best from academia, industry and government in the defence and security arena.


Real-time incident response hackathon

This will focus on improving the way we investigate incidents through the application of multi-media analysis and Artificial Intelligence (AI).  Participants will be asked to process large amounts of real-world incident multi-media data and identify key information for on-site experts.  Participants will need to exploit cutting-edge AI techniques, including machine vision.

Defence logistics hackathon

This hackathon will concentrate on accelerating logistics decision support through exploiting AI and Machine Learning (ML) capabilities.  The intent is to demonstrate the ability to analyse and share structured and unstructured multi-source data maintaining its classification and permission-based access rules at machine speed.   Data sets from the C130J Hercules platform will be provided to enable the development and testing of potential sharing solutions.

This event will require programmers and coders at the leading edge of current technology to develop an AI/ML capability that can be accessed, interrogated and translated to provide better informed and timely decision support across national and multinational domains.
