Our Story

We believe a hackathon can not only inspire the next billion-dollar unicorn, but also help unite mission-driven developers and innovators to combat an international outbreak crisis.

Hack for Wuhan, by Wuhan2020 unites developers, designers, builders, and creators all over the world to use technology to come up with solutions to help fight the current outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Wuhan2020 is the largest open source initiative that establishes a real-time and synchronous data service for hospitals, factories, procurement and other information, and we want to convene developers worldwide to leverage the system of Wuhan2020 to build innovative solutions that can serve all those impacted by the virus better. We believe hackathon can not only inspire the next billion dollar unicorns, but also help unite mission-driven developers and innovators to combat an international outbreak crisis.

12 final round teams

AidTracker Donation Direct

Team Lead: Icy Team Members: Mao Changqi, Andrew, Xu Xiaolang, Chen Chongqiang, Sheryn, Victoria,
Ivy, He Xiaoshan, James, Eagle, Linsons, Sean, Wesley

AidTracker Donation Direct is a project management cloud platform that helps volunteer organizations or individuals to process and track donations. Before the hackathon, several founding members worked in some material donation volunteer organizations, but found that frequent information collection channels were fragmented, the connection was irregular, and a lot of human and material resources were wasted. So after the end of donation work, we hope to harvest knowledge from this experience and try to establish such a docking platform to help volunteers and institutions that need supplies. We hope that every donor and every medical institution that needs supplies can quickly, accurately, and easily start the donation and docking process, so that the transfer of love is more efficient.

Epidemic Prediction and Notification Triggering System

Team Lead: Leona Lee
Team Members: Muhammad Ashfaq, Muhammad Shahzad, Abdul Gaffar,
Muhammad Arif

Our idea is to build a system that can predict the potential severity of situation once a new epidemic case is confirmed.Based on the predication result, the model will determine the expected transmission dynamics of epidemic and identify potential need of supplies. Thus it allows the user (e.g. Epidemic predication team) to send notification to relevant institutions (e.g. Hospital, factory, logistic center, airport, social media, etc.).



BAGBILA Flavy Boris

KONKOBO Pakindessama Maxime


In order to reduce the risk of transmission on the way to the hospital and promote rapid management, our idea is about to implement a mobile application for remote self-diagnosis of symptoms (helped by connected objects, watchs masks, etc...) and suspects case mapping so that a specialized ambulance can travel to remove suspect patient

One-Stop Open Source Platform for Epidemic Data

Hu Wen, Gu Yongjie, Chen Huansen, Yu Hongfei, Yi Xue, Liu Guangyue, Li Qing, Zhang Feng, Jiang Shui, Juju

Because the fine-grained epidemic data is reported by official agencies such as the health commissions in various places, and the data formats notified by different places are very different, and some data need to be inferred manually, it is not possible to use crawlers to automatically crawl and structure the data Processing can only be done manually. To this end, we have developed a labeling platform that can efficiently label epidemic data so that scientific researchers in need can collect data efficiently. At the same time, we have labeled a part of the data as the basic data built in the labeling platform, so that researchers of different research directions can further refine the labeling based on their own needs based on this basic data.

City Hero

Team Lead: Zhao Liang Team members: Deng Wenhao, Yin Huihui, Li Yang, Xiaozhou, Tang Yuxin, Shi Shenghui

Use visual and intuitive game forms to integrate knowledge and propaganda related to epidemic prevention and control, and to experience different living conditions and lifestyles through the perspective of volunteers or medical staff, in order to achieve mutual understanding, reduce public opinion, and improve the enthusiasm of residents and implementers In the limited environment, the purpose of maintaining the normal operation of society is as far as possible. An app takes you through the lives of different occupations in the Wuhan epidemic. Express brother, doctor, reporter ... Different scenarios, different choices, different indicators determine mediocrity or become a city-hero!

University Health Check-in Platform

Zhang Qixun

Design an open source locally deployable epidemic health check-in management platform for universities. Functionalities include daily punch card, data statistics report, data download, etc.

Chinese Medicine AI Diagnosis System

Urban Bear, Flying Dragon

Based on the computer artificial intelligence system, the diagnosis and treatment experience of traditional Chinese medicine experts or ancient books of traditional Chinese medicine, in the form of inquiry, patients can access through mobile phones or computers, fill in their symptoms, have expert diagnosis recommendations, Chinese medicine, and proprietary Chinese medicines.

Epidemic Intelligent Robot: Little Yuan

Team Lead: Emily Team Team Members: Song Yongle, Jiang Shizhe, Cheng Gang, Wang Peiyan, Zhang Huangdeng, Felix, Hui Shiji

During the epidemic, all kinds of information are mixed, and it is difficult to find the best answer in the messy information. By setting up an epidemic robot, you can find the most accurate protection information among the mixed information, and respond to a large number of people's inquiries in the shortest time, reducing the workload of customer service staff and improving service quality.

Gliding Eagle Delivery Verification

Panos, Anna

The epidemic in Wuhan is urgent, and the whole country is in turmoil. We want to use this tool to help Wuhan and even any city to quickly track and transport scarce supplies.

Nedelp: Design & Crowd-Funding

Team Lead: Zhao Liang Team members: Deng Wenhao, Yin Huihui, Li Yang, Xiaozhou, Tang Yuxin, Shi Shenghui

Co-brand sustainable consumer brands, design special editions of epidemic situation. Crowdfunding for the new crown epidemic.

Outbreak Story Store


The virus not only brought death and economic loss, but also brought people's fear of strangers, and magnified the hostility and violence between regions and between countries. I think it is better to let ordinary people solve this problem Share stories where they accepted strangers during the epidemic, someone helped abroad, warm people's hearts from stories, stories in our epidemic
Stored in the story store during the period, can be sold, and some of the proceeds are converted into public welfare funds


Tim Heath

Automatically create a vaccine from a virus genome. Autovax is a web application that allows a vaccine and other treatment drugs to be automatically generated from the virus genome and virus genes. It is being developed by Harvard Researcher for the treatment of coronavirus.
