Hackathon Details

The Synthetic Health Data 2020 hackathon will take place on the weekend of November 27-29th as a 100% virtual hackathon. In small teams, students and researchers will have 40 hours to get creative and develop innovative ways to work with different data sets related to diabetes and Alzheimer's. This hackathon is a part of the SHARED project and hosted by Rigshospitalet’s professor Henning Langberg.

Participating Teams


Synthetic Data in Health Care

Diabetes and Neurodegenerative Diseases

The focus of the hackathon will be to use new data science approaches to fight diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. You will work with traditional patient data and “synthetic data”, applying different machine learning models and doing benchmarking to determine whether the synthetic data approach is a useful tool for allowing researchers to work with sensitive health data in a way that more effectively protects patients’ sensitive data.

An overview of the hackathon challenges can be found here.
