The Michigan Data Science Club is hosting a data challenge in collaboration with MIDAS that will kick off the first week of October and run throughout the month. The data challenge will conclude with a symposium that will be held November 13-15. The data challenge is set out to challenge a group of teams to come up with novel solutions for real life data problems, and prizes and recognition will be awarded to the top scoring teams. This data challenge will be a great opportunity to network with U of M students and faculty involved in data science, and a great way to learn about potential careers and employers in this field. Please come back to this webpage for updates and details coming soon.


We will be offering $1000+ in prizes
