Global University Data Science- Cryptocurrency Challenge

This April the Cryptocurrency-Data Science University Datathon is open for students and professors to work together with a challenging real-world case. Get your hands on the Data and check how you can experiment and upgrade your knowledge and skills!

Nowadays the development of the technologies is moving faster than the education. Meanwhile, in the universities professors are having a hard time to keep focused and motivated the young generation on the given tasks and the traditional academic methods are rather outdated and old-fashioned.

Therefore the learning process is constantly changing with a lot of gamification models and techniques used by open-minded professors to empower and motivate their students. Especially in the era of digitalization and overwhelming quantity of data which is around us, Data Science domain becomes much more popular and interesting for future development.

In order to make the domain more applied and accessible, there is a new trend to learn by doing, solving real cases, implementing practical exercises into the learning process.

In the last 2 years, there were many hackathons, or hackathons with data, called Datathons. Most of them were physical and Data Science Society organized the first online with participants from more than 20 countries.

Now Data Science Society is presenting and the first International University Data Science Challenge – the Academia Datathon!

The University Datathon

The Academia Datathon is a weekend-long online competition taking place virtually in the last weekend of April (27th-29th of April) where more than 100 students from more than 10 universities are challenged to work on one real-world business case. The case in this edition will be focused on the implementation of machine learning algorithms in the field of cryptocurrency. In an attempt to make the case somewhat universally understandable by various types of students, it is financial time-series prediction, while making it more engaging with the hot topic of cryptocurrencies.

The Goal

The students coming from all over the world with different experience in the field of Data Science and the domain of the cryptocurrency will compete internationally in teams in order to reach the goal of building a successful investing/trading model on the cryptocurrency markets. The case integrates knowledge from various sources – Crypto Currencies, Quantitative Finance, and Machine learning. At the same time, the case is stratified as the teams solving it could complete various levels – as far as they could solve it. The most creative and precise solutions of the provided dataset for the challenge will be awarded by a jury of renowned experts.

The right moment for a challenge

After many hours spent in the university learning different approaches how to implement Data Science algorithms and techniques, it’s high time for the students to experiment on a real-world case and to test their knowledge working in a university or an international team. Often the browsing through numerous online courses on the topic isn’t enough. The students should learn how to use their skills in a short amount of time. The experience of the Datathon will resemble a true working environment where not only hard skills will be developed but also team dynamics, delegation, time management and more. Being able to handle such challenge as the Datathon would be of a great importance especially for those who soon will search for their first job!

The LIVE mentorship

There are lots of online courses and places where to learn Data Science and Cryptocurrency fundamentals and to get an advanced level of knowledge in these domains. And yeah, lots of them are really good, but let’s face it – something misses…   The question of the lack of mentorship even it’s 2 o`clock in the morning remains as it is a common situation for a true to the impatience curious nerd to look for a quick solution of his algorithmic struggles but to be left without an answer of his mistakes. We have therefore a strong team of university and society mentors to help students upgrade their skills in the 48-hours challenge.

You will get better after the Datathon we are sure but if you still don’t believe it, take part of the #general and #crypto channel discussions in the DataChat and see for yourself!

There are no shortcuts for becoming a Pro in Data Science and Cryptocurrency but you can be one step closer to by joining us!

    I was actually fooled and scammed over ( $753,000 ) by someone I trusted with my funds through a transaction we did and I feel so disappointed and hurt knowing that someone can steal from you without remorse after trusting them, so I started searching for help legally to recover my stolen funds and came across a lot of Testimonials about WIZARD GARRY, an agent who helps in recovery lost funds, which I can tell has helped so many people who had contacted him regarding such issues and without a questionable doubt their funds was returned back to their wallet in a very short space of time, it took the expert 48hours to help me recover my funds and the best part of it all was that the scammers was actually located and arrested by local authorities in his region which was very relieving.

  2. Cryptocurrency is very popular today. I am researching this topic. And even tried to write a term paper. But then I decided to turn to dissertation services for help since I did not have enough knowledge in this area. Thanks to the experts, I figured out the details and was able to pass my coursework on time.

  3. Using this opportunity I would love to extend my gratitude to Mr. Adam Wilson whom I contacted to report my issues. I consulted Adamwilson when I was involved in a bitcoin trading scam. It was unknown to me that there were systematic ways to retrieve scammed funds. I followed all the directives Mr. Adam Wilson gave to me and I was like a dream when I recovered all my money. You can reach out to him if you had the same experience as well on: Adamwilson. Trading @ Consultant Com / WhatsAPP + 1870 345 7937

  4. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.
