Tackling Data Competition Challenges: Strategies for Success
Part of the DataFest Workshop Series
Getting a new big dataset with a short deadline for data exploration, analysis, and communication of results is a common challenge; doing so with a new team for a DataFest, Datathon, or other competition adds extra complexity.
You'll be assigned a team at the start (or may bring your own). We will provide the large public dataset and challenge; you will get hands-on practice at deciding where to begin, how to break up tasks across a team, and how to manage your workflow to produce the deliverables. The assigned task will be modest; our goal is to improve your metacognitive strategies for successfully managing a data challenge.
The workshop facilitators are from the Department of Statistical Science. Choose your own software tools. Bring your own laptop.
