In what I hope is the first occurrence of a new part of ISBA conferences, Booking.com is launching a data challenge at ISBA 2016 next week. The prize being a trip to take part in their monthly hackathon. In Amsterdam. It would be terrific if our Bayesian conferences, including BayesComp, could gather enough data and sponsors to host an hackathon on site! (I was tempted to hold such a challenge for our estimating constants workshop last month, but Iain Murray pointed out to me the obvious difficulties of organising it from scratch…) Details will be available during the conference.
