As part of the 2018 SciBite User Group Meeting, hosted by our friends at Pfizer, we are also hosting our very first Hackathon.
When: Friday 12th October 2018 | Where: Pfizer, Kendall Sq, Boston, MA | Time: 09:00-17:00
Event attendance is by application ONLY and is FREE.
SciBite’s first Semantic Tech Hackathon aims to bring together those working with data or code to find creative applications in applying AI to the life sciences.
If you are a data scientist, software developer, software engineer, front end developer, bioinformatician, or just like writing bits of code to make things work, the hackathon is for you. We’re opening the event to those working in industry or academia, so if you are a PhD student, Research Assistant, or working for a company big or small, then come and join us.
During the day-long event, SciBite will be opening up access to tooling, including award-winning TERMite entity extraction tool with a rich API and Python toolkit. We will also be giving early access to some of our in-development entity identification and enrichment machine-learning toolkit. We will also be making a convenient set of training and testing life science data available on our Cloud Hosting for use during the hackathon, including literature articles, structured experimental data, and unstructured reports.
Representatives from SciBite will be on hand to help with any use of the SciBite tooling, though you are in no way restricted to just these tools!
Bring along your own ideas, tools, data, and problems, and we will hack together proto solutions in proposed areas of:
You can work alone on any project that interests you, though we also encourage partnering up with other like-minded individuals to work alongside one another to tackle your objectives.
