GEAIC.Predix Workshop. 11 April 2017. FINAL



Join us on the Industrial Internet Quest

Software developers, engineers and data masters from Europe, Middle-East and Africa : If you’d like to challenge your skills in cloud computing services, to explore untouched power grids & energy datasets, and to try a new cloud platform – then this quest is made for you..


2.5 million data points generated per day to play with and build predictive apps!  

Predix is a Platform built on Cloud Foundry (PaaS) used to capture and analyze data on an industrial scale. The platform’s industrial-strength security is deployed on machines, onsite, or in the cloud.

With broad ecosystem support, Predix-based apps are unleashing new levels of performance of both GE and non-GE assets. Our App Showcase provides a sample of market-ready industrial apps by GE, partners, and developers who are committed to advancing the new digital industrial era.


The Challenge:

A 1-month online program for software developers and engineers to access untouched data, build predictive applications on Predix, and get a chance to be rewarded with 30K euros in seed money.

A real opportunity to create new apps,  to go from a prototype to a start-up!

Apply to the Program HERE

Create your Predix account for free HERE, start playing with the data and build your predictive application.




Win a cash prize and fly to Minds and Machines Europe in Berlin to showcase your application in front of GE Business Units and customers.

The top 20 projects will benefit from the one-month coaching and technical support on the Accelerator Platform to create a Minimum Viable Product.



  • 15 000 Euros – First prize
  • 10 000 Euros – Second Prize
  • 5 000 Euros – Third Prize



Receive coaching and technical support on the Predix GE Industrial Internet Platform to build an app faster and at a lower cost along the way. 

Gain exposure, showcase your app at GE Minds and Machines Europe, and increase your visibility with IEEE.

Get various untouched datasets and make your predictive apps real .

Hell, there are no rules here – we’re just trying to accomplish something.
