AIS Hackathon is a three-day event, focusing on exploring novel findings by using 3.6TB AIS data. AIS data is collected by equipment installed in ships, consisting of static information, such as total weight of ships and built year, and dynamic information collected every few seconds or minutes, such as speed and destination. All members including Mr. Hoshi Tagawa (Tokyo Tech) and Mr. Takumi Kamata (Hirosima Univ.) from our research team are conducting AIS-related research.
