Sample projects

Below are some suggested projects for hackathon teams (a team may bring its own social case to automate).

 

Aggregator of events in Lviv

Tourism Office

Problem: Creating a calendar of events happening in the city is extremely time-consuming (each time browsing sites, copying information, creating a file for publication); also, since monitoring occurs with a specific period, there is always the risk of missing new events.

Solution: To automate the collection of information from various sites about events taking place in the city, compiling it in a single document (preferably by category) which will be published on the site, with prior approval of the information by the administrator.

Accounting for children of school and preschool age

Education Office

Problem: For thousands of children, the data in the common state database ISUO regarding their enrollment in education is different from the data contained in urban registries. It is necessary to clean up this data in order to maximally provide children (including those from disadvantaged families, etc.) with the required education; it is also important to have relevant information about a particular child readily available upon request by the police, and so on.

Solution: Automatically find discrepancies between the ISUO database and Excel tables provided by the district administrations, with the formation of a list of children who have conflicting data, to be further investigated by the education department.

Chat-bot for the center for providing services to combatants:

ATO Center

Center for providing services to participants in hostilities (ATO Center).

Problem: There are a large number of typical hits to the Facebook page of the center for providing services to combatants. With about 10 hits per day, 80% of these are typical, frequently-asked questions.

Solution: Create a chat-bot for the ATO Center Facebook page which will provide answers to common questions.
