Data Mining Contest (Nov 2012)

The BADM contests are run in collaboration with 

Contest pages on CrowdANALYTIX:
Customer Segmentation
  • Access to the competition for solution submission requires creating a free account for your team on 
  • Each team should set up only one account that all team members will use (team members will share the same login/password but the account will be tied to one email address).
  • Please use "BADM" in your team name so that we can identify submissions by course members.
Opens: Nov 6, 2012 at 6 pm IST
Closes: Nov 11, 2012 at 11 pm IST

There will be three data mining contests using the same dataset on mobile usage. Contestants can choose which contest to compete on (you can compete on one or more). In each contest the goal is to develop a data mining solution that addresses the required goal. Contestants will upload the predictions generated by their approach (or other required output) to the CrowdANALYTIX platform.

Submission format
For the supervised learning contests, you will be given two datasets for each task: a training dataset that includes both input (X) and output (Y) measurements, and a test dataset that only includes input variables (X). Your submission will be the predictions for the test set. For the unsupervised learning contest, you will be given one dataset only.
All responses must be submitted through the platform. More information will be available during the contest duration.

The data will be available for download from the CrowdANALYTIX website. A sample of 10 records from the dataset and the data dictionary are available below:
