You think that all the interesting competitions are taking place on Kaggle. But whether you are a participant interested in winning an award, or an organization interested in posting a competition, there are a few alternatives, including Data Science Central. Check out our list of challenges below.
Our first competition attracted high caliber professionals from organizations such as IBM and two winners, yet was rejected when we posted it on Kaggle, just like all our submitted competitions. We are not complaining about Kaggle's censorship - they do whatever they want to do - just saying that there are other opportunities for you.
So why not promoting your competition with us? It is free: just post it here, and you might end up hiring one of the winners. And check out this link if you are interested in other free opportunities on DSC.
Here are some of our previous competitions. Starred ones are associated with an award (at least $1,000).
Challenges of the week
In addition, I invite you to check out our project list for candidates in our data science apprenticeship: these are interesting, applied and research projects.
