Details

The task is to identify a business opportunity which can be solved with one or more public data sources and develop a business model which utilizes data sources. The opportunity may - but does not need to - use capabilities of fifth-generation (5G) networks like Edge Clouds. A typical submission is expected to include an overview of technical implementation and business related analysis of the proposal. The inclusion of a demonstrator and/or detailed technical description would provide added value to the proposal.

Any relevant data sources used in the proposal are expected to be openly accessible, e.g., APIs of cities of Helsinki or Espoo, meteorological data, etc. The submission can also propose new open data sets which do not yet exist but would enable innovation. It is expected that the submission is innovative and novel and not a simple business case built on top of a single data set. Relevant techniques may involve, for example, multiple data set(s) or combining a data set with a model to create value-add, or employing other means of data augmentation to the same end. All new ideas for adding business value to open data sets are welcome.

As an inspiration, the MegaSense project of Bell Labs and University of Helsinki augments measurements from ubiquitous low-cost sensors with calibrated infrastructure to achieve dense coverage for air quality measurements at a low cost. Even though this is not a productized solution, it exemplifies the technological potential of innovative data manipulation.

Who can create a challenge?

  • If you want to publish a challenge on the Open Ecosystem Network and get support from the community to solve your problems, you first need to be registered on the platform. Then you need to contact the Open Ecosystem Network administrator in the Community section. They will create the challenge for you. Search for “admin” in the Community section, and click on “Nokia Admin” to contact and ask for your challenge to be created.

 

How do I submit an answer/proposal?

  • To contribute to a challenge, first open the challenge page, and then click on the "start proposal" button on the right-hand-side. A new page will appear with different text fields to fill in and attachments to include. You can also link to an existing project you have previously created on the platform. Once you have finished, click on submit.
  • If you save as draft, your submission will not be completed and will not be submitted to the challenge owner.

 

What happens once I submit?

  • Once you have submitted your proposal, your ‘Challenge Submission Form’ becomes accessible by the creator or the challenge, who can see and edit your proposal. Through the challenge page, only the owner of the challenge can see the different proposals submitted against his/her challenge. It is up to the challenge owner to inform participants about decisions and potential next steps.
  • To note, when you save a submission as draft, it is not submitted to the challenge owner.

 

Who can see my proposal?

  • The owner of the challenge, the submission review committee, and the Open Ecosystem Network Administrator team are the only ones who can see your proposed ideas and solutions to the challenge.

 

What happens if my proposal is successful?

  • For each challenge, submission review and selection process is different and the responsibility of the challenge owner. If your project is selected, the owner of the challenge will come back to you with further guidance on the next steps.

 

What happens if it is unsuccessful?

  • For each challenge, submission review and selection process is different and the responsibility of the challenge owner. If your project is not shortlisted, the owner of the challenge will inform you using the messaging features of Open Ecosystem Network. Your proposed ideas will then be removed/deleted from challenge submissions.
