Building on the momentum of the inaugural WiDS Datathon held in 2018, we are excited to host a second WiDS Datathon in early 2019.
The 2019 WiDS Datathon will be a collaborative effort led by the West Big Data Innovation Hub with multiple departments at Stanford University, UC Berkeley, Kaggle (a Google company), Planet, Figure Eight, Western Digital, Intuit, and a growing community of collaborators.
New this year, we will be coordinating with the global network of WiDS Ambassadors to connect Datathon participants with mentors and encourage community workshops focused on the Datathon.
We invite you to hone your data science skills, joining teams in a predictive analytics challenge focused on social impact. The WiDS Datathon will happen early in 2019, and winners will be announced at the March 4, 2019, Global WiDS Conference at Stanford.
