Hacking4Humanity 2020

Pitt Cyber, the School of Computing and InformationGSPIA’s Ford Institute for Human Security, and Pitt Information Technology are hosting a new kind of hackathon—an intentionally transdisciplinary hackathon.

At Pitt, we believe that no one discipline has a lock on effective solutions to big problems. This is why we host Hacking4Humanity. This year we are asking students to tackle the problem of digital disinformation.

Mass digital dissemination of disinformation is now regularly exploited by bad actors. The private and public sectors are struggling to prevent and recover from disinformation campaigns—and the threat is only growing.

This year, we’re doing things a bit differently to accommodate the virtual environment. See cyber.pitt.edu/hacking4humanity for more info. Registration opens in September. Hacks are due October 18.
