PhD student or Postdoc? Data wizards who want to apply their magic to field data to solve a real-time problem in the livestock domain are welcome on this Farmhack.
Which models, methods and software can be used for predicting fertility of boar semen? This is the central theme of the two day hackathon organised by Wageningen University & Research and Breed4Food, and supported by Farmhack.nl and WIAS. It will be centred around methods and modelling. You will be challenged with real field data, and have the opportunity to share your ideas with likeminded data enthusiastics. Model admirers from the commercial companies will be there to answer your questions where it comes to the practical side of livestock business.
For this challenge we are mobilizing teams consisting of data wizards and researchers (PhDs, postdocs) who want to apply their magic to field data to solve real time problems in the livestock domain. This hackathon offers you a unique opportunity to work and meet commercial companies and data analytics. We can pick you up and drop you off at Leeuwarden Central Station, and we will take care of plenty of food and drinks. Furthermore, the winning team is awarded €2500! To join this challenge, please register before November 10 at Claudia.Kamphuis@wur.nl, and don’t forget to bring your own laptop and sleeping gear.
