The average developer spends between 20-50 hours on an challenge submission.Good news for you: there are over 257 hours until Big Data for Social Good deadline and $40,000 up for grabs.
That means it’s not too late to start, finish, AND WIN!
We know that a little guidance goes a long way, so why not get a leg up? Here’s the plan:
1) Identify a dataset and ask a question (We’ve taken the liberty of putting together a few datasets, ready to go with question options - in case you’re not sure what data to use or what question to ask.)
- Crime and socioeconomic indicators: Is there a relationship between the number of crimes in the city of Chicago and socioeconomic indicators (Median income, Poverty, Education, etc)? Data: City of Chicago Crime Data, Median household income by county, Socioeconomic Indicators
- Pollution, traffic and population of cities: Can we explain cities that are highly polluted with the population and the traffic data of the city? Data: Pollution, Traffic, Population
- Obesity and food availability: How does commodity availability and consumption in the United States (fruits, vegetables, meat, grains, etc.) relate to obesity? Data: Obesity Data from NY, USDA ERS Commodity Consumption Data
