You are here

The purpose of this hackathon is to bring together technology and innovation to develop innovative solutions and tackle furtivism and the international trafficking of wild flora and fauna species

El Mare Nostrum team, made up of the members of InLab Sergio Paredes, Francesc de Puig, Josep de Cid, Gisela Ruzafa and Gonzalo Recio, and for the student of the FIB Pau Torrents, won the 2nd prize of this 1st edition made at the Zoo Aquarium in Madrid on the 15th and 16th of September.

The project, called Poach The Poachers, automates searches on social networks for the purchase and illegal sale of species or products made with them and would also carry out an analysis of the profile of the sellers, among other features. The solution would exponentially increase the efficiency and speed of detection of potential criminals who deal with wild species on the Internet
