The public is invited to look in upon Rice University’s third annual Datathon, sponsored by the Rice Data Science Club and the Data to Knowledge Lab (D2K). This year the event will go virtual, with students from Rice and other institutions working with provided datasets to solve challenges.
Datathon 2021 will take place Feb. 5-6, with cash and other prizes for results judged to be the best.
The event organizers expect around 200 students to take part. Rather than previous 24-hour events at Rice, during which students worked and slept (when they were able) on campus, all work will take place over the internet.
Members of the public can observe the proceedings online, and will receive a link when they register here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfqG3YS7n4GEuZrFKrnsXwd1xkckz-8SV-cE6hc9u57SK7Okg/viewform.
