CALLING ALL STUDENTS! DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

Inter-University Challenge

The OMG MENA Inter-University challenge will test your problem solving and analytical skills. Teams from AUB, AUC, AUD and AUS will compete to come out on top. The winning team will win a $10,000.

 

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO?
The challenge will be about solving a real data science problem statement. Competitors will be expected to build a model using a provided sample dataset(s). In phase 1, teams from each university will compete against each other. In phase 2, the winning team from each university will present in Dubai. One team cannot have more than 5 participants.

Below are the links for four different briefs. You’re expected to submit the results and explain your results as per the word document inside the link or the form shared by your university liaison.

The briefs are ranked in order of difficulty; 1 being the easiest and 4 the hardest.

Challenge #1

Challenge #2

Challenge #3

Challenge #4

You’re expected to choose and present only one of them.

Please note that jury will take the difficulty of the brief into consideration during the scoring process; i.e. higher scores will be given to the most challenging briefs.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO WIN?
A panel of judges from Omnicom will review all the entries and select the winner. They want to see:

  1. How you handle the data, and generate relevant structures and insights for modelling
  2. How deep your knowledge of machine learning and statistics is
  3. How well you identify the right technique to approach the solution
  4. How you translate findings from the business context point of view
