The USC Big Data Health Science Student Case Competition provides enthusiastic teams of graduate and/or senior undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the analysis of big datasets in healthcare.
The Annual Big Data Health Science Case Competition is held virtually before the University of South Carolina’s Annual National Big Data Health Science Conference, which is taken place in February every year. This competition is designed to be a data science experience in healthcare for undergraduate or graduate students. Participating teams will be given the same business problem, datasets, and access to software to solve a challenging problem using a data analytics approach. Team members will work together to present their methods and analysis results at the Big Data Health Science Conference. A panel of industry and academic experts will judge the presentations based on teams’ use of the full analytics process, from framing the problem to methodology selection, data use, model building, and innovation.
