DATA SCIENCE FOR IMPROVING CHARLOTTE - We're Back, bigger and better!

More Swag, more tacos and more data!!!!!

The Queen City Hackathon is Charlotte's largest data science and machine learning hackathon, organized for those who believe in the power of data analytics in improving the lives of people in the city.

THE GOAL

Charlotte is an awesome city to live in, but like every city, it comes with challenges- skyrocketing housing prices, a lack of economic mobility, rush-hour gridlock, rising crime rates, and more. We believe Charlotte's robust tech community can help lead the effort to improve life in the city by using data science and machine learning.

This Hackathon was open to all, and we had data science and engineering mentors on-hand to lend advice to teams.

What Participants Did

  • Chose a data-set related to substance abuse and homelessness in Charlotte

  • Trained a machine learning model

  • Built an engineering solution that allows a user to interact with the model or enable the model to serve decisions to an application.

  • Learned Data Science from some of the area’s best Engineers and Scientists.

  • Ate great food, laughed, learned, had fun and won some money $$$!
