MINDS partners with HopHacks for Data Science Challenge
Twice a year, Johns Hopkins University hosts HopHacks, a popular hackathon challenge in Baltimore, Maryland. Students from across JHU and other institutions work in teams to bring a software or hardware idea to life.
As part of the most recent event, which took place February 16, 2018, HopHacks partnered with the Mathematical Institute of Data Science (MINDS) to offer a Data Science Challenge for student specifically interested in this field.
The Data Science Challenge encouraged participants to use unsupervised learning to discover new categories within a large set of images. Before and during the competition, there were short data science workshops available. Prizes were given to the teams who attained the top three highest clustering accuracies on the test set.
Big congratulations to the winners of the spring Data Science Challenge.
