1-3 October 2021: The SPELL project partners invite you to the Hackathonamring at the Nürburgring.

From October 1-3, 2021, the SPELL Consortium will host the SPELL@hackathonamring as a face-to-face event with three formats:

  • A technology exhibition featuring innovations for better management of crises and disaster situations.
  • Presentations and roundtables from their fields with personalities from politics, universities, aid organizations and technology providers
  • A programming, coding, and business modeling marathon over 40 hours. 

We expect 250 participants to work as experts and/or architects together with enthusiastic hackers* on future solutions up to prototypes. 

What is SPELL?

SPELL is a research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology with the topic AI in incident and situation management. Since June, 12 partners led by the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) have been working on a semantic platform for intelligent decision and deployment support in control centers and situation centers. The aim is to use artificial intelligence to initiate measures to avert danger, provide emergency aid and supply the population more quickly in crisis situations (for example, major incidents, pandemics, natural disasters or widespread power outages).
