Over the weekend students spent a grueling 48 hours analyzing, compiling and making sense of a vast data set in the American Statistical Association DataFest.
Four teams competed to analyze, compile and present an amount of data in an effective manner.
A graduate team — self-titled “The Visards” — won the award for Best in Show for their work over the weekend.
A member of the winning team, Eswar Damraju, spoke highly of the event.
“It was good experience to see how the industry uses large data sets,” he said.
