On February 20, the first online stage of the International Data Analysis Olympiad (IDAO) was completed. IDAO was organised by the Faculty of Computer Science of the Higher School of Economics in partnership with Harbour.Space University (Barcelona), Yandex and with the Gold sponsor, Sberbank.
A total of 902 teams registered for the Olympiad that took place earlier this year from January 15 to February 11, with 1533 participants from 55 different countries. Thirty-one of the best teams made it through to compete in the IDAO finals in April, including data analysts from Russia, Belarus, Israel, Peru, India, Brazil, Ukraine and Azerbaijan.
'Three weeks of late nights, early mornings, sleeping with collaborative filtering and waking up with gradient boosting...' — shares Samir Mammadov, a finalist from ADA University, Azerbaijan.
The final of the international Olympiad will be held in Moscow, from April 2-4, at the Yandex office site. For thirty-six hours, the participants will not only train the model but create a full-fledged prototype, which will be tested for both accuracy and performance.
This will be the first International Data Analysis Olympiad in Russia, and the organizers are pleased to see the interest in machine learning from students, company employees and others at the event.
