THE FIRST GLOBAL IOT DATATHON HAS CONCLUDED

The Global IoT Datathon provided students from around the world the opportunity to find innovative and creative uses for IoT data.  Competitors gained access to over 20,000 IoT data feeds sourced from towns, cities, counties, states and federal agencies (or equivalent jurisdictions) in over 50 countries. All of the feeds can be found on the Datathon portal at www.iotdatathons.io

Student-submissions are judged by a panel of industry experts, with three exceptional projects chosen for awards, and rewards that range from scholarships to products to amazing experiences. Look for more Datathons in 2020!
