The OpenAIRE datathon (https://datathon.openaire.eu/) aims at stimulating developers and data scientists at analysing the OpenAIRE Information Space with the intent of improving its consumption by users and third-party services. The OpenAIRE information space consists of a scholarly communication graph interlinking publications, datasets, software, research organizations, funders, and projects. The graph is the result of harvesting metadata from around 3000 data providers, harmonizing such metadata, and keeping or inferring links between graph objects described by such metadata. Inference is the result of text-mining a pool of Open Access article full-texts, which numbers around 6 Million full-texts. The graph counts around 60M objects, is openly accessible via APIs and a web portal, and is used today to offer research impacts statistics (e.g. number of products linked to given funders), Open Access trends (e.g. Open Access ratio of products published by given funders), and discovery of interlinked scholarly products (e.g. articles linked to datasets, software linked to articles for communities). The datathon encourages teams of computer scientists, data scientists and experts from other fields to join the challenge of studying and analysing the OpenAIRE graph to enhance its discovery and statistical capabilities, in order to better serve the mission of Open Science. Buzz-topics leading the challenge are: - Enabling multi-disciplinary or discipline-specific discovery or stats functionality - Novel techniques to enable measurement of scientific impact, e.g. counters, links, provenance - Novel techniques to measure scientific impact, e.g. measures of quality Enabling reproducibility, e.g. re-use oriented metadata, meaningful interlinking of objects - De-duplication of the information space, e.g. disambiguation of authors, disambiguation of organizations Data analysis can be performed using any cutting-edge methodology and technology, with the intention of deriving higher quality, statistics, enrichments from an original data collection, in order to make it more usable and interesting to the intended users. Teams can take advantage of the data analysis tools made availalble through this platform. The two teams with the most outstanding and innovative solutions will win the datathon and be awarded a prize. Register your team following the instructions at https://datathon.openaire.eu/

Calling for creative thinkers, with skills in tech, design, business, data science, gamification & behaviour science to solve the challenge of financial wellbeing. Get your team together and join the #IntrumHack. There is a pool of data, variety of tools and mentorship to support the teams. Top prize is 5K and a chance to take your idea forward with Intrum and Tieto, plus several additional awards. Great line up of speakers to be announced soon. Consumption patterns have evolved over time, but in the digital era, the attitude towards money has changed drastically since credit cards have replaced bills and coins in our wallets. Digital money is invisible and easy to spend, forgetting all the limits. That might lead to financial trouble for consumers, and businesses alike. The challenge is vast, and fascinating at the same time. As the largest debt collection business in Europe and an aspiring role model in the industry, Intrum finds both opportunity and obligation to set new standards and change how credit management is perceived. For the first time we open access to our data and call for experiments to solve the challenge. Find new digital solutions that create structure and promote wellbeing for both Intrum’s clients and customers, so that Intrum can be the bridge to support the clients getting paid and customers who are in trouble to meet their invoices. Create better (digital) services for managing personal economy and raise the customer experience through the use of data and public API’s.

2. HBAckathon: [email protected] Am 25. Mai 2018 ist es wieder soweit: Zeit für den zweiten 3tägigen Hackathon der HBA-Consulting AG. Wir laden Dich dazu herzlich ein! Nach der ersten erfolgreichen Durchführung eines Hackathons im Kollegenkreis im November 2017 (http://www.hba-consulting.de/news/news-beitrag/erfolgreiches-event-1-hackathon-der-hba-consulting-ag.html) starten wir zum nächsten Sprint durch. Ein „Hackathon“, das ist die Verbindung aus „hacken“ und „Marathon“. Ziel ist es innerhalb der Dauer der Veranstaltung gemeinsam etwas „Nützliches mit Blockchain in Verbindung mit Versicherungen“ zu erstellen. Das hierfür gewünschte breite Wissensspektrum bilden Informatiker, Mathematiker und BWLer gemeinsam ab. Teilnehmen können Studenten ab dem vierten Bachelorsemester mit ersten Erfahrungen aus ihrem Studium zu Versicherungen oder Programmierung von Anwendungssystemen, aber auch Berufstätige und Mitarbeiter von HBA. Basierend auf den Erfahrungen des 1. Hackathons werden wir den 2. HBAckathon nach den Prinzipien der agilen Entwicklung ausgestalten – es gibt also auch in dieser Hinsicht für Dich etwas auszuprobieren und einen persönlichen Wissensgewinn. Die Blockchain ist vielen inzwischen als Basistechnologie im Bitcoin-Währungssystem bekannt. Aber die Blockchain kann noch sehr viel mehr. Wir wollen im 2. HBAckathon mit Euch gemeinsam Anwendungsfälle / Apps für Versicherungen, veränderte oder ganz neue, disruptive Geschäftsmodelle und Produkte wirtschaftlich, informationstechnisch und aktuariell beleuchten und damit in neue oder deutlich veränderte Sphären des Versicherungsgeschäfts vordringen. Wir arbeiten an der Blocksurance (Wir haben eine Interpretation von Blocksurance beim 1. Event vermerkt, sind aber gespannt auf Deine Ideen!) und freuen uns auf Deine Mitarbeit. Erfahrene HBA-Berater werden als Mentoren und aktive Teilnehmer den HBAckathon mitgestalten. Du kannst Dich heute schon als Interessent für die Teilnahme am 2. HBAckathon per Mail an [email protected] registrieren, das Bewerbungsverfahren starten wir voraussichtlich im März.

In today’s fast-paced, technologically boundless world, putting up barriers and innovating on your own is a bit like having a great idea and never sharing it. Sopra Banking Software is continuing to drive momentum in Open Banking, and is positioning itself as an innovation catalyst with its Digital eXperience Platform (DxP). The platform shares a multitude of banking services with Start-ups to streamline their applications. These services can be accessed via standardised interfaces (open APIs). You no-longer require information on underlying production systems and it’s no longer necessary to maintain a range of interfaces to connect with various banks. If a service is lacking, start-ups can ask for banks to open it up, or even create it themselves as a micro service and market it using a pay-per-use pricing model. Against this backdrop, Sopra Banking Software is launching the first Open Banking Challenge - an event that is tailor-made for entrepreneurs. It’s an unprecedented opportunity to meet the emerging DxP ecosystem community and win a partnership with Sopra Banking Software who will open up the doors of numerous banks, and millions of customers via them!
