GE Digital foundry in the heart of Paris

Join us in Paris Digital foundry: a co-creation center where Software Developers, UX Designers and Data Scientists can shape the future of industry with our customers.

Discover an amazing place for developers located in the very heart of Paris, meet our GEek staff to learn about Predix and relax with a ping-pong or baby-foot game between two coding sprints!




The Challenge: Industrial world data

One million terabytes per day... that’s how much data Predix will process by 2020. Take-up this challenge, be a pioneer of the industrial internet revolution and use Predix to help solve one of the following problems:  

  • GE Healthcare (DoseWatch) Challenge: DoseWatch enables health care professionals to monitor a patients’ radiation exposure and contrast media injection dose of their patients to find the right balance between image quality and dose. Hackathon participants will build new benchmarking features to extend DoseWatch Explore offer. For instance: for a given configuration of a patient profile, medical imaging procedure, and medical imaging asset model where do I stand compared to other professionals / hospitals in terms of delivered radiation dose?

  • GE Energy Connections Challenge: GE Energy Connections offers products and services to transport, convert, automate, and optimize energy to ensure we provide safe, efficient, and reliable electrical power. Participants will get access to electrical power production and consumption time series data from buildings to create new ways to visualize and manage electrical energy.

  • GE Aviation / GE Digital Managed Services Challenge: GE provides monitoring services for its aviation customers. Amongst other aviation assets, GE monitors fleets of thousands of jet engine for several commercial airlines. Participants will have the opportunity to create new algorithms to forecast key time series parameters to enhance and discover predictive maintenance opportunities. 

Connect with GE

  • Chat, share and learn with experts from GE Businesses on real business cases.
  • The foundry is looking for talents! Winners will get the opportunity to come again for interviews.

Judging Criteria

  • Quality of Design
    Includes creativity and originality of the application idea, usability, design, and intuitiveness.
  • Potential Value or Benefits
    Includes the degree to which the solution provides scale and value — either economic or social — to a city or retail/commercial building.
  • Use of Additional Predix Platform Services
    Includes the extent to which additional (more than the three required services) Predix, Intelligent Cities, or Building Services were used AND/OR the extent to which live data was incorporated from a Predix machine-enabled device.
  • Ease of implementation
    Includes the extent to which the value provided to the end user is realistically achievable with existing technologies within the near term; not vague or overly complex to user, or reliant on a technology that is not yet on the market.
  • Pitch of App
    Includes the clarity and description of the problem addressed, how the app solves the problem, what technology is used, what Predix services are leveraged, what sensor and other data is used, and the connection the app makes to real-world problems.
