Excited about Big Data?

Form a team and take part in the Five College DataFest, taking place at UMass on March 29 - March 31, 2019!

DataFest is a nationally-coordinated undergraduate competition in which teams of up to 5 students work over a weekend to extract insight from a rich and complex data set. Previous years' data sets have included crime data from the LAPD, ticket sales from Ticketmaster, dating data from eHarmony, and car sales from Edmunds.com. This year's data set will be revealed at the opening of the event on Friday evening. At the conclusion of the competition, each team will have 8 minutes to make a presentation to our panel of judges. In addition to a "Best in Show" prize, we will give a prize for best visualization and also for best use of external data.

If you're interested in participating, you must fill out the form at the link below:
