Data Hackathon 3.0

The Battle of Survival

Hey there!
This battle of survival will test how well can you endure the complexity of a dataset and tame it according to your instructions (algorithms). The previous hackathon registered more than 250 entries all around the world and none returned empty handed. The Champion ( @aatishk ) earned Amazon Voucher worth Rs.10,000 (~$200) and the rest earned invaluable knowledge.

Here’s your chance to participate and join this data science fraternity and unlock the vault of data science resources.

  1. Get the chance to learn from peer data scientists and data science professionals
  2. Get introduced to the use of new algorithms and techniques

If you still need more reasons to participate, you might not survive this battle. Good luck!
