We are proud to share our Insights from the first in Ukraine #DataScienceNotOnTheWords Hackathon!

Squadex, cloud consultancy, part of Provectus company conducted  Data Science Hackathon to encourage young Data Scientists to share their ideas and collaborate on real-world cases important to the society. The event was organized with the support of one of the world’s most-powerful and most-influential cloud computing vendor Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the most progressive Ukrainian anti-corruption bureau Prozorro.

In just 30 hours, 60 young and bright-eyed data scientists, worked and then pitched their own solutions in front of the data science community, mentors, and NPOs representatives. They dealt  with the challenges in the 

Kaggle competition format. The Hackathon has passed in cool friendly atmosphere and plenty of unforgettable experiences.

The winners were determined through the set of pre-defined acceptance criteria and against the metrics critical to the solution. Except the board of judges the audience also had a right of vote for their favourite product concepts. And they chose the best one.

Squadex is planning to host its next Data Science community-based events later this year. Stay tuned!
