You love Data, right?
No matter if you have 20+ years as a Data Analysts or you are going fresh out of the college – this fall you will meet 200+ Data Enthusiasts and together you will dive deep into the ocean of Data for 48 hours!
Have a Data Solution to your problem & Explore how the international teams are developing their ML algorithms!
What intrigued me the most was that there were some teams which were formed by the organizers (meaning there was no prior dynamics between the team members) and also that some members were remote but they were able to perform very good.
I liked the most the way in which the Datathon brought people together and provided an excellent game-like learning environment. It was a pleasure to be part of such an amazing event, and I look forward to the next Datathon!
It was a very enjoyable weekend, and an honor to participate with you. I learned a great deal. Thank you!
The Datathon is a weekend-long online competition where you are challenged to work on a real-world business case from different areas of Machine Learning, AI, and Data Science.
You and your team have 48 hours to come up with a solution to a real business challenge based on the provided datasets. The jury and the society will award the most precise, but also creative solutions.
The Datathon is entirely held online and opened to the global community via our platform. Anyone who wants to join us in Sofia or in Malaysia is welcome.
Yes. It is not mandatory to have a team formed in order to participate. You will have a chance to form a team virtually up until the start of the Datathon.
However, we advise you to register on the Datathon as soon as possible in order to review the cases and start communicating with other participants in order to form your team.
If you already have obtained a ticket via Eventbrite, you will receive an email with instructions on how to register on the Datathon platform. Please register and start browsing the cases and other registered participants. You will be able to form a team with ease once you have chosen a case to work on.
We suggest the following workflow to choose a case:
Review all the provided cases
Look for a case that will challenge and excite you
Form or join a team that you will have fun with
Your team’s solutions will be evaluated according to several criteria - statistical indicators, resourcefulness of the solution and creativity of visualization.
You can use the output data and other information provided to you in regard to solving the chosen case only during the duration of the event. You must not use those for personal or commercial purposes outside the event format and activities. With the registration for the Datathon, you agree to also provide your work (analysis, methodology, source code, etc) to the organizers for them to publish on the event page.
After purchasing a ticket, you will receive an email with instructions on where and how to register on the Datathon website and start forming your team.
You will submit your work as an article when the 48 hours of the challenge are over. After an evaluation, a list of finalists will be selected. The selected teams will present their cases via Hangouts.
Eventbrite registrations will end one week before the event on September 23rd, 2018.
Registration on the Datathon website will not be closed, so you can register to participate throughout the even or join later to review what other participants have achieved.
