Created in partnership with Microsoft and University of Oxford, the A tale of two cities - Exploring the future of work - A Data AI hackathon addresses the above questions
We present the findings from London open data and the hackathon will ask the same questions based on open data in New York
What will we find in this saga of two cities? Do we see a pattern with wider implications? What does it mean for the future of work?
We invite you to join us in reviewing datasets from these two cities using Data and AI tools to develop new insights and solutions that emerge from data captured before, during, and after the pandemic.
✨ Rules: Form a team of maximum (3) individuals to take the data and process results. Choose your team prior to the event or on-site amongst attendees. ✨ Suggested Tools: PowerBI, Python, AI builder, Synapse, CosmosDB, and Percept. ✨ Prerequisites: We recommend that attendees are data professionals and possess skills related to the above tools. If you are not fully knowledgeable with the above tools, you are free to apply what you learn in our offered workshop content or you can use the hackathon as a learning opportunity / opportunity to work with others.
✨ If participants do not currently have an Azure subscription, we have a limited supply (25) of Azure passes with some credit available.

We hope to share insights from this work, widely building on our experience at the University Of Oxford. Rikesh Shah, Head of Open Innovation @ Transport for London said "I am pleased to see that the open data and innovation journey we started at University of Oxford is now expanding to the city of New York. I look forward to hearing about the learnings from New York"
