We are Hacklytics 2021, Georgia Tech’s premier datathon brought to you by student organization Data Science @ Georgia Tech (DSGT)! Leverage the power of data to uncover hidden insights in the chaotic world of stock markets, improve athletic performance, manage the dizzying challenge of a vaccine distribution program, and more!

Open to all aged 18 or over, Hacklytics is supportive of all skill levels. New to data science? Attend introductory workshops on data cleaning and data analysis with Pandas and numpy provided by DSGT. Think you have a solid grasp on these fundamentals? Learn to build and deploy machine learning models on AWS.

And put your skills to the test with real world data challenges from companies like Citadel and Anthem, or create your own projects pertaining to any discipline that interests you! 

In addition, learn about the latest advancements in data science and artificial intelligence platforms from guest speaker Igor, founder of augmented intelligence company Pryon. 

Many consider data to be the new oil. We can’t wait to see what you can build with this precious commodity.
