Data Science Challenge 2020 Registration


All good things come in threes! 2019 is drawing to a close, and in order to sweeten the contemplative time of the year, we are happy to inform you that the Data Science Challenge organized by Know-Center is entering its third round!

This year, we and our sponsors once again invite you to participate in this exciting challenge as teams or individuals! The sponsor line-up is top-class and will be published at the latest with the announcement of the task!

Starting with this announcement, registration is possible below! On 10.01.2020 all registered participants will receive the task descriptions as well as the necessary data records and can start. The participants can then continue working on the task until 03.02.2020 and submit their results as described in the task description.

The highlight of our challenge will be the award ceremony at the exclusive AI-Know conference in Graz in February 2020, to which the top teams will be invited to. Only there will it be announced who has emerged as the winner against the rest of the field!


We aim to offer an opportunity to all brilliant minds to compete by working on complex problems in the context of Data Science and Machine Learning. The challenge provides an excellent chance for young students in the fields of software development, computer science, telematics, applied mathematics and data science as well as motivated practitioners to demonstrate their expertise and improve their problem-solving skills. At the same time, participants can present themselves as potential candidates and future data scientists to sponsors as well as organizations.


Powered by our sponsors, we will reward attractive cash prizes to the best submissions, as well as giving you free admission and the possibility to present your solution at the AI-Know Conference in Graz in February 2020.
