HERE Technologies are pleased to announce the winners of #HackForBetterDays virtual hackathon.
We are facing a challenging time - the global COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the lives of millions of people and has changed the structure of societies and the way we do things in an unprecedented way. Doing things the way we once did is no longer an option. Our families, friends, colleagues and the broader community need solutions to adapt to our new changing reality.
As a call to action, HERE Technologies in Partnership with IBM and many other global and local organisations, are organising the #HackForBetterDays, a fully online, 30-day virtual hackathon across Asia Pacific!
We want enthusiastic and innovative individuals and teams to come together to use location and other disruptive technologies to build useful apps and solutions that can
- Respond to the needs of the society related to the issues currently being experienced;
- Improve the affected functions of society (e.g. school closures, gatherings restrictions, shops closing, etc) during the recovery process;
- Support governments and agencies to better respond to large scale disruptive events such as COVID-19 pandemic.
The society needs and issues to address may include but not limited to protecting the vulnerable population, helping the health care system, issues related to education, future of work, mental health and well-being etc.
