Two teams of eight students competed at the mid-Missouri DataFest on April 6-7, with the award for “Best Visualization” going to one of the teams. Participants included Caleb Jones, Nabin Karki, Rudy Nartker, Mengqing Zhang, Grant Wallace, Mandi Murphy, Jason Odom and Liting Zhang. Teams were given less than 24 hours to try to find trends and patterns in a corporate data set containing more than 17 million records, bringing in additional information from public sources and applying classroom knowledge learned in statistics classes to real-world data. The American Statistical Association DataFest is a celebration of data in which teams of undergraduates work around the clock to find and share meaning in a large, rich and complex data set. This year, over 2,000 undergraduate students from more than 70 colleges will meet in 35 different locations to celebrate DataFest.
