Unearthed Sydney was a 54 hour open innovation hackathon event featuring real data and challenges from global leading resource companies. Sydney’s top developers, engineers, data scientists, entrepreneurs and startups selected one of several challenges on offer from the supporting resource companies and came together to build prototype solutions over the course of a weekend. The top teams were awarded cash prizes, credits and future development opportunities. All teams own all of the IP they generate at UnearthedSydney.

Paul Lucey, CEO Mine Vision Systems, is interested in the SEIT project and is looking to further develop the prototype they made on the weekend.
