Data and Media Hack 2019 (DMH 2019) will set the stage for innovation, calling on teams consisting of students with their mentors from various backgrounds to address social or commercial issues that matter to our future. We are driven by a vision to bring talents and professionals together at HKBU, to share impactful insights, discover business opportunities, learn emerging media and communication technologies, and deploy data-driven projects.
In a 48-hour time span, participants are expected to apply knowledge and skills from data analytics, media and communication, artificial intelligence, business, design, education, and others to solve the most prominent problems that are faced by industries, and to bring value and impact through an innovative way. Participants shall choose one (among the three) topic and embark on your data journey.
During the hackathon, we will provide various workshops for participants to better equip themselves and work on their projects. Each workshop will run for 45 minutes - 1 hour.
