Pune’s largest inter-collegiate Data Science Event organized under Credenz ‘18.


DataWiz challenges you to find unconventional answers to real-world problems by applying the principles of probability, statistics & machine learning. Your goal is to analyze the data, algorithmically decipher the inherent patterns in the data and make predictions based on the statistical dependencies between the input and the corresponding output.

Participating in such predictive modelling competitions will help you gain practical experience and also improve and harness your data modelling skills in various domains. At the same time, you get to do it in a competitive context against several participants where each one tries to build the most accurate predictive algorithm.

Pushing each other to the limit can result in better performance and smaller prediction errors. Being able to perform well in such events will help you accelerate your career in Data Science.

Compete in Pune’s largest inter-collegiate Data Science Event in Credenz ‘18 and find out if you have it in you to be our very first Data Wizard!

You either win, or learn!

  • A maximum of 2 candidates pursuing undergraduate program at their institution are allowed per team.

  • Disclosing the code and data outside of the teams is prohibited and will lead to disqualification.

  • Using code or data from any external resource(s) is not permitted and will lead to disqualification.

  • Round specific rules will be specified on the contest page.

  • The contest will be hosted on Kaggle. Contestants will have to create a Kaggle account if they don't already have one.
