“As part of the Data Challenge, we looked beyond the raw scores and included a final presentation from each team about their approach in the overall evaluation. This year’s winners did very well and communicated their approach in a comprehensible and structured way. However, we would also like to congratulate all other participating teams for taking on this year’s challenge, which was not an easy one,” says LEC Data Scientist Christian Laubichler, on behalf of the expert jury.
