ATB Datathon: Solve for Alberta, solve for the world

The Heart, MacEwan University Robbins Centre

**REGISTRATION LINK: https://alphabeta.atb.com/events/atb-datathon-solve-for-alberta-solve-for-the-world Calling all exceptional problem-solvers! The ATB Datathon brings together Canada’s leading minds in the fields of data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other disciplines, to foster diverse discussions and problem solving. By uniting cross-industry communities for a weekend of friendly competition, we can solve problems impacting the lives of everyday Albertans; uncovering solutions with potential for global impact. Alberta is perfectly positioned to solve some of the world’s most significant challenges with the help of the smartest minds and today’s most disruptive technologies. It’s home to world-renowned universities, research and application of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Together, we aim to establish Alberta as a testbed for the best and brightest ideas. Utilizing aggregated datasets from a variety of sources, combined with a wide variety of data science tools, teams will converge to solve compelling challenges and compete for prizes. This event is open to participants from across Alberta at any level of expertise, from data newbie to seasoned professional. CHALLENGES To participate in the Datathon, teams will choose to focus on solving for one of the following challenges on registration: 1. Mental Wellbeing - Our mental health plays a significant role in our ability to enjoy a happy and productive life. Utilizing public demographic data, interactions with digital devices and social media, for example - what insights can be discovered to reinvent how support for mental wellbeing or stress-related issues are addressed? 2. Precision Agriculture - For Canadian farmers, even the slightest of business decisions can play a profound role in crop yield, quality to market, and overall profitability of the farms themselves. How can we use machine learning, satellite imagery, weather data and historical reports to create end-to-end intelligence that could have a substantial impact on our farmers, today? 3. Customer of "One" - Meeting customer demands for services and experiences (over products) is creating a new mix of consumer behaviours. Using public and synthesized datasets, create a model that allows banks to deliver more innovative, tailored experiences that can better meet their needs today and in the future.
