The Hackathon returns
“Hydrocarbon Release & its Environmental Impact”
Greenhouse gas emissions from oil & gas operations are one of the most critical challenges faced by the industry today. Detecting emissions and leaks have always been difficult due to technical, logistical, and cost limitations. However, the advent of technology and the birth of AI and Machine Learning has brought the promise of a future where greenhouse gas emissions can be controlled.
And so, Microsoft Energy Core Hackathon will return from March 1-8, 2020 to further develop and improve the first Hackathon’s outcomes by providing new tools, partners, higher resolution imagery, and datasets to help participants create new solutions that are reliable and ready for deployment as a proof of concept. This new iteration of the Hackathon will challenge participants to locate when and where leakage occurs, predict the concentrations and predict the movement of the methane cloud among other things.
The objectives of this Hackathon will be:
- Identify Sources of Releases
- Release Journey: GHG release from inception to diffusion
- Using AI & ML to enable operators to control and limit releases
- Establish recommendations and Roadmap for the future
- Solve a real-world energy-industry-related problem by building an application (MVP) using Azure AI-technologies.
- The MVP shall be briefly presented to the jury and additionally submitted online through a GitHub repository, Teams workspace with descriptive Slide Dec
- Participation is limited to individuals/teams nominated by Energy Core Customers and Universities leadership only
- Participants will be assigned into teams min. of 3 members per team and max of 5 to jointly design and build their application, from vision to production.
- We advise you to have team of Data Analysts and Data Scientists/Machine Learning experts, familiar with
- Azure platform
- ArcGis platform
- Phyton development (Computer Vision)
- PowerBI tool
- Teams will be formed based on final numbers of registration.
- You can register as an:
- Individual – we will assign you in a Team
- Each team is assigned one experienced subject-matter-expert to coach the team, monitor progress, answer questions and resolve challenges.
- Participants will use Microsoft Azure AI technology to extract insights from unstructured data and expose the results by the end of the Hackathon.
- Participants will collaborate within a dedicated Microsoft Teams environment having their cameras and microphones turned on
- Application Development will be done on Azure / GitHub
We wish you best of luck! 😊
