Romanian team wins first place at EU Datathon 2020

The Romanian team made up of Razvan Pistolea, Adnan Temur, Andrei Mocanu, and Sergiu Eftimie won the first place at EU Datathon 2020, the European Union open data competition, in the Challenge 4 - “A Europe fit for the digital age” category. They won a prize of EUR 12,000.

The team’s project - Digital Dryads - is an app that aims to protect forests from illegal logging by combining state of the art satellite imagery and data, spectral analysis and machine learning. 

Another team from Romania named Shield won the second place in the Challenge 3 - “A new push for European democracy” category with an app that uses artificial intelligence to detect fake news and false profiles on social media by scanning sources for their credibility. The winner in this category was the Next Generation Democracy team from Denmark.

The full list of winners is available here
