On February 10, the EMBEDDIA consortium organized a hackathon get-together of hackathon participants and EMBEDDIA staff. We used this event to check-in with the teams and present the expectations and challenges of our media partner, the Finnish News Agency (STT).
The interaction with hackathon teams was conducted via the Gather.town application and it was in the form of a tool/model/data/challenge support session. We used the Gather.town application to make the event less formal and more social. Participants were able to wander around and meet other participants and see what they are working on — or to chat with other researchers from EMBEDDIA!
Below are snapshots of today’s event.
