RSS statistical analytics challenge 2014

RSS_Challenge_2014Great news! The RSS is setting a data analysis challenge this year, sponsored by the Young Statisticians Section and Research Section of the Royal Statistical Society: Details are available on the wordpress website of the Challenge. Registration is open and the Challenge goes live on Tuesday 6 May 2014 for an exciting 6 weeks competition. (A wee bit of an unfortunate timing for those of us considering submitting a paper to NIPS!) Truly terrific, I have been looking for this kind of event to happen for many years (without finding the momentum to set it rolling…)  and hope it will generate a lot of exciting activity and replicas in other societies.

    The outcome of such a team based analysis would be a great submission to NIPS or one of its many workshops – we are hoping that there will be a goodly number of Machine Learning based teams entering into the fray as well – in a similar spirit to the NCSML challenge http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/statistics/research/csmlnetwork/network-activities/postdoc-challenges/2014/
