Hosted by the New York Maritime Innovation Center (NYMIC) and R1 Labs, the NYC Maritime Hackathon addressed real world challenges around data in the shipping industry, focusing on ports, logistics and supply chain. Topics included Maritime Big Data, Cyber Security and Supply Chain Velocity.
From shipboard navigation, engineering, and cargo handling systems, to port and intermodal operations, through cargo and logistics technologies - big data offers significant opportunities to enhance operational and environmental safety, increase efficiency, and improve reliability and visibility in commerce. But the increasing reliance on data also presents challenges to security, standardization, and interoperability.
Ultimately 14 groups competed, 9 of which presented their projects at the end of the weekend.
The first place team (DockIt) applied AI principles used in Healthcare today to check completeness of bill of lading and other essential shipping documentation, factoring in differences between forms used by various carriers to eliminate delays caused by missing data.
