#1 GE Data Science Innovation Challenge
SOLVING SCARCITY THROUGH WATER REUSE: DATA SCIENCE INNOVATION CHALLENGE
GE invites data scientists, analysts, GIS specialists, etc. to compete for an opportunity to co-develop a wastewater optimization methodology and algorithm set. This algorithm set will catalyze a site-selection decision support tool-a data science model that melds data elements and key business rules sets into a decisioning criteria.
The Entry that best meets the Judging Criteria will receive a cash prize of $10,000 USD (the "Cash Award") and will also be eligible for a developmental grant cash prize of $25,000 USD (the "Grant Award") to co-develop the data science model suggested in Entrant's proposed approach with GE.
CHALLENGE DEADLINE: OCTOBER 27th, 2015
