Bayes Impact, a nonprofit backed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Y Combinator, is hosting its second data science hackathon to bring together Silicon Valley and the federal government.
At our last hackathon, teams detected sex trafficking rings, predicted antagonistic drug interactions, and optimized police dispatches. This time around, we are creating data prompts in collaboration with the Chief Technology and Data Officers of six government agencies to build software solutions to our nation's most pressing challenges. Be a part of our government’s data revolution at Bayes Hack 2016.

Let's hang out a little! Grab a San Francisco brunch with Matt Rogers (Nest) and Swati Mylavarapu (KPCB), then chat social good with Joe Lonsdale (Palantir, Formation 8) and Zac Bookman (OpenGov) over dinner. Once you've had a little rest, we'll fly you to Washington D.C. to pitch your hack to government innovators.
We'll set you up to work with the federal agency that wants to turn your hack into a solution for problems at scale. It's one thing to just hack social good; we're going to bridge the gap and make it happen.
