We are excited to announce Hack for Ageing Well, a two-day hackathon that we are organizing together with the Active and Assistive Living (AAL) programme, which will take place towards the end of September in St. Gallen.
Ageing Well means staying healthy, independent and active at work or in our community during our whole life. It is also a strategy in public policy around disease prevention and early detection, with better use of technology and better training towards a more supportive and accessible environment. We will set out to Hack: to rethink, sketch, prototype or build on existing technologies that – through more usable and considerate design – better support our later years.
Additional information can be found on the website, where you can register to get involved: https://2016.aalhackathon.eu/
Capacity is limited, so please book your (free) ticket if you are thinking of coming. We will soon have additional announcements of challenges and workshops for everyone who signs up!
We would appreciate suggestions if you have ideas of datasets or platforms, or would like to get your institution involved. This event is part of an international series, and we look forward to participants and datasets from around the world.
