Last Tuesday we defined the challenges for the World Port Hackathon 2017 in the Xperience Dock at RMD Campus. An interesting combination of technology partners, experts and port community.

To give you a glimpse of what happened, some examples of what we discussed during the workshop were topics like predicting the usage and failure of assets in the port, optimizing the flows of good through the port, and mapping the energy consumption from companies in the industry. Which data is needed to tackle these challenges? Which experts do we need to explain these challenges? And, can we apply (new) technology to create answers to these challenges? These are just a few examples; the eventual challenges will be published on our website soon!

Overall a good energy, a great set of engaged partners, and valuable input for the challenges. A good taster of the World Port Hackathon 2017!
