December 14, 2015 – March 14, 2016
For us, data science is more than a skill or profession. It is a calling and a way of life. It rewards grit as much as talent. Failure, curiosity, and small successes lead to discovery. Data science grants the power of entire nations or corporations to the individual. It gives a megaphone to those who were previously silent. Our purpose is bigger than any one of us.
Become part of this movement, how would you use data science to help change the world?
The 2016 Data Science Bowl was co-sponsored by Kaggle and Booz Allen in partnership with The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health. Contestants developed algorithms to empower doctors to more easily diagnose dangerous heart conditions, and help advance the science of heart disease treatment. We’ll award $200,000 to those who observed the right patterns, asked the right questions, and in turn, helped people live longer and spend more time with those that they love. Results from the competition will be announced on March 21.
