2017 ASA DataFest@UofT

On May 5-7, 2017, we ran another successful DataFest. Last year we had 10 teams compete, and this year we had 20 teams (64 teams of 3-4 students signed up to participate)!

The challenge this year was based on data that was donated by Expedia.  It was an excellent opportunity for many students in statistics and other programs (all UofT students were eligible) to think about how to use a large, messy data set to create knowledge.

Additional pictures and updates are available on the ASA DataFest@UofT website. The pictures can be accessed here directly.
