almost every part of our lives we’re connected to the world through APIs. An
API is a customer interface for technology products that allows software
components to communicate. They’re in our mobile phone apps, our cars
and our homes.
now live in an API economy - where applications that are disrupting entire
industries can be created more easily and without huge investments in IT
And at the Hartree Centre, we’re playing out part in this revolution. In partnership with IBM Watson
we’re holding our first ever hackathon between 18 and 20 May. We’re
looking for coders, designers and entrepreneurs to create the next big thing at our first Hartree Hack.
This free event will give people the opportunity to:

available from Watson. From analysing images and video to gaining
insights from text documents, they will learn how to tap into the power
of Watson APIs to build cognitive apps.
Work as part of a team to
their first cognitive app – a team of mentors from IBM
Watson and the Hartree Centre will work closely with teams to help them
build something amazing, in less than three days!
