-NI Hackathon-

Come join us for an exciting Hackathonin Dortmund to find out what’s written between the lines anywhere on the web and build creative solutions around it. How’s the mood in the twittersphere? Which articles are written too angrily to be read by children? Which touristic location leaves people the happiest? Use cases are endless and we want to explore them with you!¬†

IBM’s Watson uses state of the art NLP (Natural Language Processiong) to give us an idea of what subtext is delivered with any text – the related research field is called psycholinguistics. Signals from wording, syntax, slang, and punctuation are interpreted by trained neural networks and standardized for practical use. API, food and drinks, and some initial sparks of inspiration are provided, now lets get together and start coding!
