Numbers are storytellers, but they need us to be their voice. Do you have what it takes to be the voice of the data? 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.
EVENT DATE : December 29, 2020
ELIGIBILITY : UG students
Round 1 : In the Quiz round, there will be a quiz of 80 marks and one 1-hour time limit consisting of Multiple Choice and Multiple Correct questions of varying difficulty levels. There will be no negative marking. For the quiz, only one attempt is allowed per team and each team should participate in the quiz via their team leader's account. The cut-off score for this round will be 50. However, the cut-off score is subject to change.
Round 2 : Round 2 will be a coding round where your data science knowledge and analytical skills would be put together against a problem for which you have to build a prediction model based on the given data set and any of the standard performance matrices would be used for evaluation. The context of the datasets needed will be provided. The expected format of the solution, code, and reference and mining of the datasets will be explicitly mentioned. This round will last for 7 days. Predict-X wants to challenge your ability in scanning and analyzing data and hence it will have no programming language restrictions. The declaration of the result will be after the completion of the event. However, participants can always track their progress via the leader board.
