Hackathon

The CI2018 Hackathon will be held on September 19th, prior to the start of the workshop. We encourage all workshop participants to attend the Hackathon. The format will be similar to the CI2017 Hackathon.

The Hackathon will be run using the RAMP tool developed by the Paris-Saclay Center for Data Science under Python.

The goal for the CI2018 Hackathon will be to predict hurricanes evolution (24h forecast) using collected data from all past hurricanes (since 1979).  This challenge proposes to design the best algorithm to predict for a large number of storms the 24h-forecast intensity. The (real) database is composed of more than 3000 extra-tropical and tropical storm tracks, and it also provides the intensity and some local physical information at each timestep. Moreover, we also provide some 700-hPa and 1000-hPa feature maps of the neighborhood of the storm (from ERA-interm reanalysis database), that can be viewed as images centered on the current storm location.
