The objectives of the National Data Science Challenge (NDSC) are to:
Through this competition, we hope to showcase the ubiquity and usefulness of data in getting insights, thus reinforcing Indonesia’s emphasis on driving the digital economy and the use of big data.
National Data Science Challenge 2020 is a one-day data competition open to all professionals and students.
The competition consists of two rounds of Data Science and Data Analytics problems designed by Shopee Tech Teams. Participants must analyse the dataset, draw insightful conclusions and solve the problems in a specified amount of time. Not only will participants get a chance to code to generate insights that solve real industry problems, this competition will also provide them with an opportunity to test their coding skills and understand the importance of data skills required in Shopee.
