Hackathon for supply chain resilience and disaster management. 

From 23.06. to 25.06.2022, the two R&D projects SPELL & PAIRS invite you to a hackathon in Hannover. The event will take place within the scope of Interschutz 2022 and thus provides the perfect basis for challenges on the topics of resilience, sustainability and population protection. 

Managing complex crises and emergencies goes hand in hand with managing a flood of information. A wide variety of data is available from a large number of sources, which are combined in a semantic platform in SPELL and can be used to assess the situation. Support can then be provided by specialized AI services, which are used on the platform for evaluations and for implementing specific subtasks. 

The challenge here is fundamentally concerned with the question of how so-called “knowledge computing” can be used to better manage disaster situations. 

Similar topics are also of interest in the PAIRS (Privacy-Aware, Intelligent and Resilient crisiS management) research project when it comes to supply chains, for example. Corona and Ukraine have caused supply bottlenecks virtually around the world, and completely new ways of thinking are needed to manage them. PAIRS is looking for solutions, supported by data and AI, to make supply chains robustly resilient and sustainable. The main aim is to anticipate crises at an early stage and generate individual recommendations for action. The hackathon is intended to provide suggestions and ways to achieve this objective as precisely as possible. 

The Hackathon offers prize money of up to € 5000.
