TC304 Student Contest on Data Analytics

TC304 regularly holds TC304 Student Contest on Data Analytics in conferences. The purpose of this event is to encourage students to learn statistical and probabilistic methods (e.g., machine learning) and implement them in geotechnical data. First, a contest question is given to all participants, and participants are asked to address the contest question and present their works in the conferences. Depending on how this contest question is addressed, one TC304 Student Contest Award and several encouragement awards will be given.
