Hacklytics is Georgia Tech’s 36 hour datathon brought to you by Data Science at Georgia Tech, Georgia Tech's largest community of student data scientists! Our goal is to give students an opportunity to get hands-on experience with data science, collaborating on projects that make a real impact.

 

As the world is becoming increasingly dependent on data, our theme for Hacklytics 2022 is "Connecting Communities". We look forward to seeing innovative projects inspired by using data as building blocks for a better world.
