Hackathon: Using Image Recognition to Track Urban Developments

More information and registration >>

Litter, asset, and building management are among the most important issues for Amsterdam’s citizens.

We are at the beginning of using image recognition to track urban developments. Did you know that the whole city of Amsterdam is openly available as high-resolution panoramic images? This has inspired some companies to improve their own image recognition tools. The opportunities are endless. In the US for example, researchers have tracked gentrification. In this hackathon, we aim to explore image recognition techniques, in order to track urban developments the city government should respond to. We will use:

  • Neighborhood developments (gentrification)
  • Civic reporting (notifications)
  • Asset management

DDSW 2018 - City of Amsterdam Hackathon quote

During this two day hackathon, we will use data of the city of Amsterdam and other available open data. We aim to get insights so Amsterdam can grow to become more of a responsive city. Image recognition is used to spot what the local government should do to make Amsterdam’s residents happier.
