WHAT IS ICARUS
ICARUS aims to deliver a novel framework and beta platform that leverages data, primary or secondarily related to the aviation industry, to help companies and organisations whose operations are directly or indirectly linked to aviation (e.g. airports, airlines, IT aviation companies, aircraft equipment industries, extra-aviation service providers, travel agencies, health and epidemics monitoring agencies, etc.) to simultaneously enhance their data reach, as well as to share / trade their existing data sources and intelligence, in order to gain better insights into airplanes’, airports’ and passengers’ quantified selves and contribute to improving their operations and increasing passengers’ safety and satisfaction.
“Unleashing the value of Big Data by making it meaningful”
Big Data from airlines, airports, aircrafts, and extra-aviation service providers, combined with open linked data (e.g. for weather, environment, population, etc.) have the credentials to reassess the mentality of the aviation ecosystem, by early predicting critical failures, and maintenance needs, optimizing flight paths, rescheduling routes at real-time, improving operational efficiency, serving a seamless ground/air passenger experience, safeguarding the environment, and monitoring safety and risk threats.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE DATATHON
The main objective of the ICARUS Datathon is to expose the platform functionalities and features to external users, allowing them to explore and create new innovative methods of solving problems in the aviation industry based on the ICARUS platform. The participants will have the opportunity to access aviation data, identify potential aviation-related problems they can solve, and create solutions with the use of the ICARUS platform.
ICARUS poses a fascinating opportunity for data enthusiasts, to put meaning into aviation data and become part of the elite group of problem-solvers in the aviation industry; an industry that has been severely hit by the COVID19 pandemic and needs more creative solutions than ever before.
