In Netherlands the CASSINI Hackathon will be organised by EscherCloud, a sustainable data center integrated within an AI Hub!

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will have a profound impact on the economy and society in the coming years and the Netherlands aims to position itself on the forefront of AI applications.

We believe that the challenge of Digitising Green Spaces can be accelerated by combining Earth Observation data and AI. Hackers joining our hackathon will have access to NVIDIA support and our network of AI specialists.

In the Netherlands, we encourage hackers to focus on:

  • Innovatively using geospatial data to assist over 75 cities in the Netherlands to meet the Green Air Pact.
  • Develop solutions for Amsterdam’s Green Vision 2050, to create a fully circular economy by 2050 and increase the accessibility and efficiency of green spaces.


EscherCloud Support!

Join the CASSINI Hackathon Netherlands to win:

  • Cloud credits for Eschercloud
  • Showcase space at EscherCloud AI Lab
  • An event for 75 at EscherCloud AI Labs (when corona measures lift)


The winner will also have expedited access to NVIDIA Inception, an acceleration platform for AI, data science, and HPC start-ups (terms apply). More information:
