EMERCOM of Russia has determined the winners of the Emergency DataHack open online competition in the field of artificial intelligence with the assistance of the Research Data Infrastructure (INID) project. The event took place from 28 to 30 May.

About 400 people from Russian cities and foreign countries applied for participation. As a result, 45 teams solved three real-life problems of predicting emergencies on rivers and federal highways. 23 teams of participants reached the final, 12 became winners.

Deputy Minister of EMERCOM of Russia Viktor Nichiporchuk thanked all the participants for the work done. “Specialists in data and artificial intelligence were solving problems aimed at choosing new approaches to prevent emergencies using modern technologies. I am sure that the proposed solutions will find their practical application in the activities of the Russian Emergencies Ministry and will make our life safer and more comfortable. Such events have proven their effectiveness, so we plan to initiate them in the future, ”he said.
