STUDENTS AND EDUCATION OVERVIEW

The South Big Data Hub has provided students opportunities to gain real-world experience through attending multi-week team building fellowships, collaborating in fast-paced atmospheres, providing expert knowledge to address company data-related business challenges, obtaining internships to utilize data for social impact, and participating in speaking engagements and travel awards to expand their knowledge and network.

In addition, the South Hub and partners developed tools to help youth understand the many aspects of the data-intensive computing environment through a national online Data Science course.

Description:
On August 26 and 27, programmers and software engineers convened in Orlando to push the boundaries of creativity, innovation, reality, and technology to build solutions and concepts that have the potential to make a difference in the Orlando community. Called the Orlando Smart Cities Hackathon, the event aimed to support the city of Orlando in its efforts to become a smart city and also to demonstrate the city’s capabilities as it works to earn the title of “The Smartest City.” Orlando received two smart cities grant awards and is pursuing a variety of additional funding opportunities for smart cities initiatives that would help to enhance transportation citywide and beyond. In these pursuits, the city continues to move forward with building a data-driven infrastructure that will support safer, cleaner, and more efficient travel and an improved quality of life.
