Kambria (https://www.kambria.io), the “first-ever” open innovation blockchain platform that enables and incentivizes collaboration in
R & D, manufacturing, and commercialization of advanced technology, is excited to host the Global Blockchain & Data Analytics Hackathon at Stanford University on October 28th and 29th. This is the second event in their partnership with International Data Engineering and Science Association (IDEAS) to host hackathons at major universities in the US and an important part of Kambria’s effort to support the developer community. The Kambria team will be working with data science experts to present problems to hackathon competitors related to building APIs for personalization in retail, including personalized promotions, cross-selling and upselling. Participants will have the opportunity to share and demonstrate their cutting edge technologies and startups can pitch their solutions to top global investors.
Solo developers, coders and startup teams in data analytics and blockchain are welcome and encouraged to participate in this event. Coding and developer teams will have two days to hack a project together with their team and compete for prizes. Startups will be pitching their big ideas to 10+ top venture capital investors. Previous events have attracted more than 500 attendees with 50+ teams participating.
"We are thrilled to partner with IDEAS and host a hackathon focused on data science, as it supports our core values of growing the development community and accelerating technological advancements,” said Dr. Thuc Vu, Kambria’s CEO and co-founder. “The Kambria team’s main focus is bringing forth innovation in an exponential manner and providing value to multiple audiences around the world.
