|WELCOME TO THE AMERICAS DATAFEST!
Come to the Americas Datafest to work with computer programmers, policy researchers, local non-profits and data scientists to address some of the biggest challenges and opportunities related to migration.
Build web applications, mobile apps, tools and resources that will help migrants to manage their daily lives, experts to examine existing patterns and emerging trends, NGOs to provide services, journalists to report migration news and societies to combat human trafficking.
In addition to Stanford, the Datafest will also be taking place in more than 20 cities and 12 countries around the world. There will be food, and prizes for the winning teams. The projects from the top two teams will be submitted as entries to the international competition.
