What is an InfoCamp
UC Berkeley School of Information’s InfoCamp is a premier student-run event that aims to inspire a re-imagining of information technology. In its 11th year, InfoCamp will feature an ideathon and speaker series. Our theme this year is inspired by living through a unique time in history, where we have seen people around the world create innovative ways not only to adjust, but to thrive in the new normal.
What is an "Ideathon"
This two-day event is your chance to tackle challenges towards learning in the new normal. Participants will work in teams that use innovative and design thinking combined with each individual’s subject-matter expertise to collaborate and brainstorm possible solutions. We are looking for any and all ideas that you can think of, so let your imagination run wild!
- Engineering / Data Science (build a coded POC or a data model!)
- Product (conjure up an interactive design prototype!)
- Policy (enforce your own policy recommendations!)
