Demo Day tickets almost sold out!

Thursday, June 21st at Revolution Hall

JOIN US FOR A NIGHT OF DRAMA, CELEBRATION, AND DATA-DRIVEN INTRIGUE WITH FIVE NEW STORY COLLECTIONS ON PORTLAND'S CIVIC PLATFORM.


Sprint with us!

We're in a rapid development sprint from now until our platform launch at the Global Smart Cities Conference, June 21st.  That means we're five weeks away, and if you're ready to dive in, there's still plenty of opportunity to get in on the action, join a team, and stand with us on Demo Day.   Perks include team t-shirt, unlimited Dominos pizza, and profound glory.

By the people, for the people.

We're building open source, data-driven systems to address big civic issues.  

From topics like hunger, minimum wage, and emergency response, many of Hack Oregon's projects have had a direct impact on policy and bipartisan decision making in Oregon.  By building open source tools, supporting our volunteer workforce with advanced training, and thinking about data in creative ways, we're able to approach complex information challenges and reveal critical insight cities need. 

The tech we've built is scalable, the volunteer roles are teachable, the process is reproducible.  

open source is powerful, and so are you.

We're proud to join the Smart Cities network in partnership with Global City Teams Challenge, a program by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

 
 Intel is a strong partner in all our AI and Machine Learning analysis.  Working together to promote community engagement through education, state of the art compute clusters, and build events, we're able to tackle some of our toughest data challenges yet. 

The Intel® AI Academy is a technical partner in this year's AI and machine learning analysis. Some of our most advanced data challenges can be tackled by working together to promote community engagement and education through hackathon events and the use of the Intel® AI DevCloud - a cluster of Intel® Xeon® processors.
