Hacking happiness for Cloud Computing team

#HackingHappiness competition, Digital Catapult Centre, January 2017

Congratulations to the team of four PhD students from the EPSRC CDT in Cloud Computing and Big Data who were part of the winning team Route2Happiness at the 28-hour Hacking Happiness hackathon competition, which took place at the Digital Catapult Centre in London,  on 16-17 January 2017, in conjunction with the Royal Society.

At this event, teams collaborated to find novel ways in which artificial intelligence and machine learning could be used to predict, measure and also increase positive mood and wellbeing.

The Route2Happiness team worked on a solution to use data to work out a personal happiness index in order to map the most ‘happiest’ route to take on a journey.
