  • Location Security Delta @HSD Campus

The Security Delta is a Lab of the University of Applied Science in Leiden and is situated at the Wilhelmina van Pruisenweg 104 in Den Haag.

And also, you can join the Hansken Hackathon online. More information will follow.

With Hansken, it is possible to add your own code/scripts to the extraction process of (digital) case data. For example, in the form of an extraction plugin. In this hackathon, we briefly explain how you can do this yourself, so you can start working on your own ideas. At the end, we will check the outcome and decide on the best plugin. With of course a nice prize for the winners!

Theme: Artificial Intelligence

We have chosen hansken.ai as the theme, as a follow-up to the workshop that took place last summer on the use of artificial intelligence in Hansken. This means that we ask experienced and new developers to participate, but also AI specialists, so that the opportunity arises to bundle knowledge! When in doubt if this is relevant to you: just drop by or join online to see how extraction plugins can work for you!

Check the GitHub for a preview

Do you already want to have a look? The Extraction Plugin documentation is available at the NFI GitHub. But: good to know that reading the documentation is not required to participate in the hackathon!
