Data Science Challenge: The top five


On October 1, 2017, 23:55 PM MEZ, the final submission period for the Data Science Challenge has ended.

The team behind the Data Science Challenge hopes, that the task at hand has been a challenging and entertaining one for our contestants. Overwhelmed by the response from the community, we never even dared to hope for participation of this magnitude!

Today, we announced the top five contestants, who have achieved the best results by applying their models to the validation dataset. These contestants are invited to the award ceremony during the i-Know 2017, to which they also won free admission.

The ranking among the top five teams, and therefore also the ones winning the prizes, will be announced live at the Data Science Challenge award ceremony on October 12, 2017 17:30 MEZ at the i-Know conference in Graz.


After the conference, the complete results as well as the full dataset will be distributed to all participants as well as on the i-Know website. We would also like to keep in contact with our newly built community and therefore try to set up a way to keep in touch.

Once again, the Data Science Challenge Team wants to thank everyone who helped us out and participated in this challenge! We hope to have you on board once again the next time!
