Deutsche Telekom is organizing #AIHack4Mobility on October 29th and 30th. After the success with #AIHack4Diversity in 2019 (link) and #AIHack4Ladies 2018, this year everything revolves around the topic of “Future Mobility” under the motto “Artificial Intelligence for Diversity Teams”. The partners are Telekom Innovation Laboratories, Telekom Mobility Solutions, Telekom Code + Design, and the smart mobility provider Ioki. Register now for free (link).
The issue of sustainable mobility is a moving one – not least for Deutsche Telekom in times of a changing world of work. After all, mobility, especially in a professional context, must adapt to the working environment, which can change daily, and at the same time be as cost-efficient, comfortable, and environmentally friendly as possible (see „Stuck in Traffic,“ link). The goal of this year’s hackathon #AIHack4Mobility is to use machine learning algorithms to understand the specific demands that the increasingly dynamic world of work already places on different mobility service providers.
There is prize money for the first, second, and third place winners of the hackathon with 5,000 Euro for the first place, and with 3,000 and 2,000 Euro for the second and third place. In addition to the financial reward, the proximity and possibilities of hubraum, the technology incubator of Deutsche Telekom (link), is also attractive. Hubraum, with its locations in Berlin, Krakow, and Tel Aviv, has been an active member of the start-up scene and digital ecosystems since 2012. E-scooter provider Tier, the European market leader, has started in hubraum, founded in 2018 by Lawrence Leuschner (CEO), Julian Blessin (CPO), and Matthias Laug (CTO) (see “Intermodal Simulation,” link).
While the hackers are developing, a virtual conference with mobility experts for B2B decision-makers and players will take place on the second day, October 30. Individual lectures from practice and data science are planned, as well as interviews and panel discussions. Already announced are Dr. Daniel Dettling (Zukunftsinstitut), Florian Pronold (State Secretary for the Environment), as well as other leading figures from research and practice with a focus on mobility, a shift in transport, and sustainability.
This year the hackathon will again be hosted on the Telekom Data Intelligence Hub (DIH) platform. The DIH is a cloud-based data exchange with an integrated AI environment (Artificial Intelligence), and available as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering (link). It relies on open standards and offers hackathon participants a browser-based Jupyter notebook with a curated selection of Python libraries for the fast, scalable development of algorithms.
Deutsche Telekom’s Data Intelligence Hub is building a first data space demonstrator for the 2021 ITS World Congress as part of the real-world laboratory Hamburg initiated by the NPM (National Platform Future of Mobility). It shows how the new data standard IDS (International Data Spaces) can help to enable innovative, sustainable mobility offers nationwide, which require the interaction of different mobility service providers and platforms (for additional details see “NPM – National Platform Future of Mobility and Telekom,” link). 12.55 pm we will provide a first peek at “Mobility Data Space with IDS using the example of Intermodal Travel” with first insights into the economic potential of data for intermodal travel using the example of the Real Laboratory of the Hamburger Hochbahn (NPM press release, link, in German). The mobility analytics experts and data scientists at the Telekom Data Intelligence Hub successfully used simulation experiments to demonstrate real end-user benefits: intermodal travel can be faster!
