C-DAC launches hackathon for Covid-19 solutions


PUNE: Researchers and scholars will now get a possibility to search out solutions for figuring out, tracking and forecasting outbreaks of Covid-19 and facilitating drug discovery as neatly.

The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), beneath the aegis of the National Supercomputing Mission, has introduced a hacakthon to struggle the spread of the virus. Researchers, academicians, startups and industries can talk over with to take part within the hackathon.

A remark issued via C-DAC stated that, members can have alternatives to win awards. The hackathon will be performed in two rounds. In spherical one, the top 25 cutting edge implementable Ideas will be decided on via jury comprising of eminent scientists and area experts.

On selection, the proposers of these decided on concepts will transfer to spherical two for proving their concepts via development a prototype for organising the Proof of Concept. The proposers are required to reveal their prototypes and make shows to the jury all through the prescribed length.
