Kaggle, is a global platform for data prediction competitions allowing researchers and companies to post their problem and have it scrutinised by the world’s data scientists.

By exposing a problem to a wide range of analysts and techniques, data prediction competitions turn out to be great way to get the most out of a dataset, given its inherent noise and richness. For example, Kaggle has been running a bioinformatics competition requiring participants to pick markers in HIV ’s genetic sequence that predict a change in viral load (a measure of the severity of infection). Within a week and a half, the best submission had already outdone the best methods in the scientific literature.

This talk will introduce data modelling competitions and talk about some of the statistical challenges.
