IoT Innovation Hackfest with BIG IoT Innovation Challenge as Part of the IoT Week 2 018
At the Innovation Online Hackfest we are looking for individuals, (that can work in small groups online) towards designing, create and prototype a project-idea and identify the most valuable aspects from IoT technologies. The selection of those valuable technologies should help to enable “IoT innovation” like a NEW BUSINESS IDEA, Promote “IoT knowledge transfer” like to MATURE IoT technologies and solutions into A CURRENT PRODUCT/SOLUTION and to motivate IoT services and applications
using IoT Project Results for “accelerating” IoT MARKET ADOPTION. Ast least one of the team members must be able to attend the finals day on June 7th 2018 and present the slides and the prototype and/or video.
The Challenges and Hacking Opportunity
Registered participants will have access to learn the details, and experiment or test the technologies, platforms and services, and have the opportunity (in advance of the competition) to look across the different IoT platforms information sites, development wikis, software code repositories, etc. The offered technologies, services and solutions described can be used freely during this period.
The HackFest as Part of the IoT Week 2 018 https://iotweek.org/ in Bilbao.
IoT Innovation = Business Ideas
Innovating the IoT Industry: New Business Ideas, IoT knowledge transfer and Internet of Things Market Adoption The IoT Forum and the Internet of Things European Platforms Initiative are pleased to invite IoT experts, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and researchers to the IoT Week 2018 Inovation Hackfest.
Th BIG IoT Innovation Challenge
BIG IoT Innovation Challenge: Data Marketplace
Design, create and prototype a project-idea by using the BIG IoT technologies. They should help you to enable “IoT innovation” by creating a NEW BUSINESS IDEA based on interoperable and accessible IoT marketplace solutions, or to promote “IoT knowledge transfer” by using BIG IoT software components to EXTEND A CURRENT PRODUCT/SOLUTION to enable the exposure of data services in the form of offerings in a global market as part of a BIG IoT-based IoT ecosystem and to motivate BIG IoT-based services and applications that can be commercially exploited “accelerating” MARKET ADOPTION of the IoT DATA MARKETPLACE. The pitch and the presentation of your project-idea, should be supported by implementation work (code) and/or a simulation video that should be submitted to be considered part of the IoT Innovation hackfest final evaluation.
Innovation Hackfest> What is it?
This year IoT week is organising an Innovation Hackfest to allow software developers, systems architects, services and solutions designers, entrepreneurs students, researchers and business makers, from different start-ups, large industry, industrial research units, etc., to explore the potential of the IoT Platforms, developed technologies, solutions and applications that reflect the results and are the outcomes of three years projects in the context of the IoT-EPI (European Platforms Initiative).
The main objective this year is to motivate that results from H2020 European projects and innovative ideas go into market products, services and solutions that can incentivise entrepreneurship (start-ups), market adoption (industries make use of available technologies), knowledge transfer (large industries) to adopt and adapt technology coming from donor projects in the form of open source technologies and include them in their business plan, and/or products ideas, and/or production process.
Individuals can register and participate and form a team (ideally) of maximum three persons, every person must register as participant in the competition from up to three weeks before the IoT week (available from mid-May 2018) and until the last day of the Innovation Online Hackfest Finals (IoT week competition day is on 7th June 2018) indicating the team she/he belongs to. If participants are alone, organisers can advise to form teams of three in order to combine expertise and increase the possibilities to win. The challenges and technologies available are described in detail in the section “Rules”.
All participants must be registered as participants in IoT Week 2018 devpost. https://iot-week2018.devpost.com/participants/
The earlier you register the more time your team has to get to know and test the available technologies. The members in the team must be registered in the competition in order to have access to the premises and to be eligible to the prize in case the project is shortlisted as winner. The selected online platform for registration is IoTWeek 2018 official website https://iotweek.org/registration-2018/.
