Congratulations to Physics undergraduate students Sydnee O’Donnell and Oscar Barrera who recently participated in UF’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) Days 24-hour Hackathon and won first place! As part of UF’s AI Days initiative, teams were assigned the task of developing a software application to develop a solution for greater global awareness and sustainable literacy by addressing one or more of the sustainable development goals (SDG).
For their project, Sydnee and Oscar used 2016 Boston census data, which looked more in-depth at disadvantaged populations. With a k-means clustering algorithm, they found the regions of Boston most in need of additional infrastructures – such as community centers and public schools.
