HKUST X RADICA Big Datathon
The First Ever Data-driven Competition

Hong Kong Univeristy of Science and Technology (HKUST) & Radica co-organised Big Datathon with the support from the commercial industry, Radica gathered some real business challenges and data from actual companies for participants to solve!

We are doing things differently:

  • Participants worked on challenges focusing on the application of big data, data analytics, and data science specifically
  • The presenting teams had the chance to receive real business-focused comments and feedbacks from our topic sponsors (and judges) - bring them closer to the reality of data usage and analytics in the true business world

Radica drives this event because we believe Radica can and should help nurture new talents and provide them with networks and opportunities, and for businesses to get involved to spot the right talents for their company.
