The Stamford Innovation Center will host the city’s second hackathon next weekend.
The three-day event, which kicks off Friday, Feb. 19, will feature roughly 150 participants focusing their projects on the Internet of Things, or IoT, and artificial intelligence.
Sensors will be placed at the Innovation Center, along a 1.5 mile stretch of Atlantic Street and at Fortina Restaurant in Harbor Point, creating an IoT corridor collecting data on light, motion, carbon dioxide levels, temperature and other factors. The data will be available to the hackers for their projects.
There will also be panels held throughout the day Saturday on tech subjects and a STEM hackathon for high school students on Sunday.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday. Regular attendees not participating as developers in the hackathon can buy tickets for $15. Students can enter free of charge.
