March 20 - March 22

#HackCorona - An online hackathon for public protection from COVID-19
Calling the global data science community to #HACKCORONA

About this Event

COVID-19 is still spreading exponentially throughout the world. Current statistics indicate that 15-20% of people who get it require hospitalization for respiratory failure for multiple weeks. The hardship falls on elderly people, medical personnel as well as the healthcare system in general.

Identifying the main pain points in the current health crisis situation, Data Natives is activating its 78000+ community of data scientists, healthcare professionals, entrepreneurs, researchers, designers, and tech professionals to come up with solutions for:

  • Protecting the elderly and medical workers
  • Offloading the healthcare system with faster diagnosis options and medical equipment delivery and/or assembly
  • Assisting with daily responsibilities for the ones who need it the most (e.g childcare, grocery shopping, and medication, etc.)

This Friday, March 20th, we are kicking off an online hackathon #HackCorona to find creative solutions for given problems within a short period of time. We’re encouraging data scientists, entrepreneurs, social workers, designers, engineers (and everyone!) to join us.

Join the conversation from our slack group!

To participate, apply here.
