CivTechSA and the SmartSA partners have teamed up to share datasets with the public in order to connect communities, ideas, and data to improve the quality of life today as we build a smarter tomorrow by hosting our annual Datathon Competition!
The purpose of Datathon is for community engagement to help address internal challenges that affect the services that the City Organizations provide to its residents. We are hoping teams can discover and identify opportunities and/or missing data elements in the data sets and explain how those insights could be applied in practice for the potential benefits of the community and/or partners.
Applications for the 2021 Datathon are opening soon! Stay tuned for announcements and updates on our 2020 teams, solutions, pitches, and prizing.
