MinneAnalytics is partnering with Hamline University to sponsor analytics competitions at the high school level. Our mission is focused on promoting the data sciences, and what better way than to help build a pipeline of interested students? A pilot competition is being organized for April of next year, with a broader reach coming during the 2018/2019 school year.
This fall, we invited undergraduate and graduate students to explore real-world healthcare data for MinneMUDAC 2018. Last Saturday, Nov. 4, more than 60 teams gathered in Eden Prairie to present their results to judges from the analytics community.
As part of our expanding support of education in data science and analytics, MinneAnalytics has committed $17,000 in scholarships so far this year. This is an increase from 2016 and will allow for a greater number of scholarships supporting the next generation of data scientists.
