For the second year we organized a hackathon together with the German Press Agency (dpa) in Berlin. This time, the challenge was about image and photos 📷. Around 70 participants got together to develop solutions on intelligent image searches, digital licensing and rights concepts as well as new visual representations.

“Hackathons are part of our service to our customers — a common marketplace of innovation,” Roland Freund, Deputy editor-in-chief at dpa.
