This opportunity has unparalleled potential, as IEEE is comprised of more than 360,000 members who conduct and participate in its activities in more than 150 countries.

The Challenge

GE Digital organizes “The Industrial Internet Quest” to build new predictive apps that will craft the future of the Industrial Internet in a free one-month online challenge.

The quest will take place on Predix – a platform built on Cloud Foundry (PaaS) used to capture and analyze data on an industrial scale for asset performance management and operations optimization by providing a standard way to connect machines, data and people. Predix is enabling the adoption of powerful, secure, and scalable solutions and powering the industrial app economy.

 Are you an engineer, a software developer or a passionate individual residing in Europe, the Middle East or Africa? Then we encourage you to launch yourself into this challenging quest to express your talents and share your inventions.

You will gain access to the untouched datasets : real-time data on energy consumption from the Galilee building in Paris and an aviation data set containing 20 sample flights with more than 300 tags for each flight. A good way to become the next Industrial Internet pioneer!

Expert coaching will be offered in the online platform. You will benefit from technical support with webinars to coach you on Predix, as well as mentoring (development, design, speech) to assist you in the whole creation and publication of your MVP.

The three winners will share a prize pool of seed money worth up to 30.000€. They will be mentored by GE experts from the end of the challenge until the showcase of their app, which will occur at Minds + Machines Europe in Berlin. Minds + Machines is the premier Industrial Internet event dedicated to software, innovation, and the most powerful digital industrial outcomes. There they will promote their app by getting in touch with GE business Units and customers.
