In a few weeks the worldwide largest data mining contest the DATA MINING CUP Competition with over 80 educational institutions will start.
In spring each year the prudsys AG wants to enthuse domestic and international students for intelligent data analysis (data mining) and challenge them to find the best solution to a data mining problem in competition with others.
2012 we want to follow on last year and will place two competition parts again. This year both parts are focussed on price decisions ("pricing") in online shops.
Besides a classic Data Mining task the second part includes a dynamic Data Mining problem, which can be solved by creating a pricing agent.
Two tasks - different problems and thus an increased degree of difficulty are the challenge for the DMC competiton 2012. We are looking forward to your ideas!
