Over 100 undergraduate and graduate students gathered in Mathematics 3 early Saturday morning to tackle large datasets at The Data Open, a competition that brings together the best minds in mathematics, engineering, science and technology to collaborate and compete using the world’s most important data sets. Students received the data sets at 8:00 a.m. and, in teams of three to four, had until 3:30 p.m. to analyze the data, extract meaningful insights, and propose solutions to a socially impactful problem.
