GEQuest: 2 Big Data Science Quests on Kaggle

          

GEQuest: focusing on making flying more efficient, and improve the patient experience, 2 big quests have $350,000 in prizes, and are a great opportunity for Data Scientists, Data Visualizers, Lean Startups, and App Designers to show their stuff. Hurry - deadlines in February!

The Industrial Internet. The Internet of Things. What does it all mean?
In a nutshell, it's internet-connected devices collecting data and communicating to make industries smarter. This data is then used to anticipate and avoid problems, instead of fixing things after the fact.

We created the GE Industrial Internet Quests to reach the people who know how to analyze and interpret this data and use it to improve our daily lives. With $350,000 in prizes to be awarded, this is an opportunity for Data Scientists, Data Visualizers, Lean Startups, and App Designers to show their stuff.


GE Flight QuestFlight Quest - Make Flying More Efficient

Prize Pool: $250,000 | Deadline to Enter: Feb 14th, 2013 (for details, see the Quest Timeline)

Your Challenge: Develop a usable and scalable algorithm that delivers a real-time flight profile to the pilot, helping them make flights more efficient and reliably on time.

Airlines are constantly looking for ways to make flights more efficient. From gate conflicts to operational challenges to air traffic management, the dynamics of a flight can change quickly and lead to costly delays. However, real-time big data analysis is changing the course of flight as we know it. Stuck at the gate again? Time to do something about it.

Flight Quest: See Official Rules at www.gequest.com/flight/rules for details.
Contest ends at 11:59:59 p.m. UTC on March 13, 2013. Must submit at least one entry and final algorithm codebase before 11:59:59 p.m. UTC on February 14, 2013, to be eligible.


GE Hospital QuestHospital Quest - Improve the Patient Experience

Prize Pool: $100,000 | Submission Deadline: Feb 17th, 2013

Your challenge: Contribute to the design of the ultimate patient experience.

While medicine should be left to the professionals, many aspects of hospital operations are ripe for rethinking. In this Quest, we focus on operational (non-medical) solutions that can promote an improved health care system experience for patient and family. Can your data-driven app provide the cure?

Hospital Quest: See Official Rules at www.gequest.com/hospital/rules for details.
Contest ends at 11:59:59 p.m. UTC on February 17, 2013. Must be 18 years of age or older to participate. Free GEQuest website or Kaggle account required. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited.
