SFBayACM Data Mining Hackathon - seeking Big Data

          

SFBayACM seeks Hadoop-size big data for a Data Mining Hackathon - let us help solve a problem you care about

ACM OBJECTIVES: Learning experience working on a competitive data mining project, like others at www.Kaggle.com Focus on big data and optimizing a business metric (depending on the problem). We will organize Saturday morning times for review and collaboration.

COMPETITIONS:

  • Big data (i.e. Hadoop Sized)
  • Portable Computer sized data (a sample of the big data, or another)
  • Optionally, Data Description or Data Visualization (judged subjectively)
SEEKING PROBLEM AND DATA:
  • Let us help solve a problem you care about. Can a "success metric" be provided?
  • Data that can be shared publicly, i.e. AWS.amazon.com/publicdatasets/
  • Let us know your requirements, constraints, concerns.
  • Would you consider sponsoring the competition prizes? We could provide the same benefits to Hackathon sponsors as Data Mining Camp sponsors.
  • Contact Greg_Makowski@yahoo.com
