(upbeat music) - One of the things that I encourage people, is people say, oh, the only way to do this is through college, internships with, you know, pick your favorite company. And I tell people, why not just go to a hackathon? You know, just go to a hackathon every weekend and see what problems people are working on. We had a hackathon, a serious of hackathons, one of which was on what are we gonna do around veteran suicide? Another one on just on the general notion of suicide.
What happens if we started to take data and start to ask, as there new ways we could understand the mental pain and anguish that people are going through, and intercede to save lies? What would a hackathon look like if we wanted to use data to find new ways to save lives around safety issues, like, people crossing train tracks when they shouldn't, or car traffic fatalities, or bike fatalities, what would that look like? Those data sets are out there.
You don't just need a coursework to study them, because if you have a computer, you can just go and do it. You can just go play on it, you can just start playing with the data. (upbeat music)
