What is a datathon?
We'll provide you a rich dataset and real-world problem, and your task is to analyze the dataset and come up with a solution. You'll work in a space with other contestants over a weekend, and pitch your solution to a panel of judges.
What is this year's case?
We haven't released this year's case yet. We'll drop the case (problem + data) on the website closer to the competition to give everyone the same amount of time.
Do I need to know how to code?
No. If you have a health background, you can join a team with coders, or use data analysis software tools that don't require a coding background!
Do I need a team?
No. If you choose to apply as an individual, we will match you with a team before the competition based on your skillset. You can also apply as a team, with up to 3 other people.
Is there a cost to attend?
If you are accepted, the Datathon is free to attend!
Who can participate?
