DataFest is a celebration of data in which teams of undergraduates work around
the clock to find and share meaning in a large, rich, and complex data set.
The students are assisted by roving consultants who are graduate students, faculty,
and industry professionals. After two days of intense data wrangling, analysis, and
presentation design, each team is allowed a few minutes and no more than two
slides to impress a panel of judges. Prizes are given for:
> Best in show
> Best visualisation
> Best use of external data
Each individual in the winning teams will receive $500.
Friday, May 4 – 3:00 p.m. to Sunday, May 6 – 5 p.m.
