Sangam 2019 - ML Hackathon by IITMAA

Challenge Over


Social Share


Sangam is a flagship event of the IIT Madras Alumni Association. In 2019, IIT Madras is celebrating its diamond jubilee and at the event, we will deliberate the theme “Reimagining India in 2030” and envision a new India of the next decade. As the late Prof. C.K. Prahalad suggested, we will explore ways in which India can assert its economic, technological, and moral leadership in the world.

ML developers of the country can grab this opportunity to work in the Sangam Hackathon involving a proprietary time-series pollution data set that the IIT Madras project will unveil for the first time.


The challenge is open to Machine Learning enthusiasts. Developers throughout India are eligible to participate and win in the contest.

How can you be a part of this?

Register and participate in this challenge and get a chance to prove your mettle against all the other fellow ML developers.


What's in it for the finalists?

  • In the Finals, selected teams will build applications/visualizations using the proprietary time-series pollution data set provided by the IIT Madras Project that is available throughout India.

  • Selected participants can use this data along with the available economic, traffic, weather, healthcare data in India to build new applications that will improve living standards in India.

  • This data is being made available/public for the first time and hence we want the community to build ideas/concepts for future applications/visualizations.
