Objective

Do you have what it takes to create artificial intelligence, challenge dumps of data and create meaning out of it? The field of data science is evolving into one of the fastest-growing and most in-demand fields in the world. Predict-X will test your ability to understand data, analyze it, and build predictive models. We challenge you to solve real world problems with all your data science skills.

Structure

  1. Predict-X will consist of two problem statements, one of classification type and the other of regression type. Participants will have 21 days to solve these problems.
  2. The competition will be hosted as in-class competition on Kaggle. Predict-X will present its participants with datasets and general information on the contents of datasets.
