Bentham Hackathon


103c Camley Street | London | N1C 4PF | United Kingdom

Open to: Alumni | Public | Academic | Student

UCL have teamed up with IBM to hack the writings of the philosopher and social reformer Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832). Bentham wrote on a vast array of subjects including democratic reform, religion, crime and economics and his ideas on education inspired the founders of UCL.

Transcribe Bentham is working with IBM to explore the following question at the Bentham Hackathon:

How can digital technologies help us to research Bentham’s philosophy?

Join us for an intense and fun weekend of hacking and problem solving as we apply the best of IBM’s innovative technology to a vast and unparalleled dataset of Bentham’s manuscripts.
