About the Event

Sponsored by the State Water Board's Office of Information Management and Analysis, this Trash Datathon is an opportunity to gather with like-minded individuals and tackle challenging and urgent problems. This Datathon will build upon past efforts to share innovations in the understanding of California's trash data. Among topics to cover are:

  • Trash Data Dashboard

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Modeling

  • Critical Knowledge Needs for Trash Monitoring

This Datathon will complement the upcoming CA Water Data Challenge, providing participants with the potential to refine ideas for later submission.
