This workshop was an open discussion on how we were going to do this hackathon. The workshop was lead by Serge Masys and Marie-Pierre de Bethune.
- Serge explained the used cases that could be worked on during the hackathon.
- Marie-Pierre explained the reasons why someone develps HIV drug resistance.
- Very interesting Q&A session
Livestream and presentations available: https://hivhack.org/workshop-1-open-discussion/
In the first part, Dalberg Data Insights will share with us how telecom data can be of use to help in public health issues. Dalberg Data Insights is a Belgian start-up, which is a spin-off from Real Impact Analytics (now Riaktr). DDI uses data technologies to address important development problems. They have applied Data Science and Big Data to help reduce hunger in Northern Uganda using satellite imagery, fight the spread of infectious diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Zika and Ebola in Brazil and West Africa using telecom data.
In the second part, Marie-Pierre de Béthune will give us an overview of what HIV is, beyond the biology. Marie-Pierre de Béthune has dedicated her carrier to fighting HIV. She has worked on the development of therapeutics drugs and has extensive experience on HIV’s virology as well as it’s socio-economic impact.
Finally, the session is closed by a presentation of the projects started by the HIV Hack initiative : HIV Hack Meta Portal and HIV Organizations Network

In the previous workshop Jenny explained the content of her global dataset and Serge explained what he did to get more information on Tanzania.
In this workshop will be about going into more depth on these 2 different datasets and show some examples of data visualisation.We also invited people to help us gathering more datasets
We had 2 excellent presentations from the participants:
- one about HIV Drug resiatance in India
- on about how to use the python notebook to prepare a model.
Livestream and presentations:https://hivhack.org/5-workshop-on-data-visualisation/
We organised a special Q&A session, mainly for the datascience bootcampers.
Serge gave an overview of the possible use cases
Jenny explained more how she developed her model about hiv drug resistance.
