The Hackathon @ The Port – CERN

I have just arrived back from participating in an amazing 3 day hackathon @ CERN in Geneva. In this post are some pictures of my team, the project (which is about improving land clearance of mines through improving communication between demeaning dogs and their handlers) and the presentation from day 3 of the hackathon @ The Port 2014 –

This was an amazing event not only because of its location and the community it took place in (CERN!!!), but also because the organisers of this event brought innovators in technology and creativity together from across the globe to address some very urgent humanitarian issues. To say it was a ‘very inspiring event’ would be a massive understatement. – photos appear courtesy of Andrey Longinov.
