SUTD Virtual Research Hackathon

10 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 2021 9.30AM to 5.00PM Online via Zoom (Details to be shared later)

A 2-day virtual research hackathon to improve traffic conditions after accounting for probabilities in a world of random variables.

Are you up for it? 


*This Hackathon is open only to students in the final or penultimate year of high school studies.

The mission

Understanding and improving traffic conditions by randomly wandering around.  

The Hackathon

In this volatile and uncertain world, it can be hard to predict what will come next. Yet, there are some individuals, businesses and governments who may emerge as winners, as they are able to model and manage their risks and uncertainties.

In this two-day online hackathon, you will:

  • be introduced to the Monte Carlo Simulation – a very powerful tool to model the probability of different outcomes in a process that cannot easily be predicted due to the intervention of random variables. It has applications in virtually every field, including finance, engineering, supply chain, and social sciences

  • utilise the simulation to model traffic

  • work in groups to propose and test different solutions to improve traffic conditions

You will also get to learn more about one of our premier programmes – the SUTD Honours and Research Programme (SHARP) and stand to win attractive prizes!

Prizes for winners of the challenge 

1st prize: eCapitaVouchers worth S$500
2nd prize: eCapitaVouchers worth S$300
3rd prize: eCapitaVouchers worth S$100
