Crowdsourcing Success: Science Hack Day London

March 17, 2013 in events, Hackday

Yesterday was our Science Hack Day London event.

I think it’s safe to say it was a roaring success and we’ll likely be having more this year.

We had Daniel Lombraña González jet in from Spain to help us with PyBossa / Crowdcrafting projects and got a working demo of a sound classification app using SoundCloud by the end of the day

An excellent demo of the potential of Konekta geolocation and polygon drawing
Lots of brainstorming with the new WAXscience project from France (Aude Bernheim @AudeBer & Flora Vincent @vincentflora). WAXscience aims to do something positive about gender imbalance in science. We talked a lot about potential methods of ‘sampling’ gender balance at scientific meetings & conferences – twitter mining, web mining, and even citizen science self-reporting with mobile apps.


There was even wonderful free food & drink provided especially for this hack!

For more details about the event see the Storify of tweets in full here.

We will let you know as and when we plan the next hack day
