We are happy to announce our partnership with Analytics Vidhya, a pioneer in the Data Science community. Analytics Vidhya is well known for its impressive knowledge base, be it the hackathons they organize or tools and frameworks that they help demystify. In their own words, “Analytics Vidhya is a passionate community for Analytics/Data Science professionals, and aims at bringing together influencers and learners to augment knowledge”.
We are joining hands to provide candidates of our PG Diploma in Data Analytics, an added exposure to UpGrad Industry Projects. While the program already covers multiple case studies and projects in the core curriculum, these projects with Analytics Vidhya will be optional for students to help them further hone their skills on data-driven problem-solving techniques. To further facilitate the learning, Analytics Vidhya will also be providing mentoring sessions to help our students with the approach to these projects.

This collaboration brings great value to the program by allowing our students to add another dimension to their resume which goes beyond the capstone projects and case studies that are already a part of the program. Through this, we hope our students would be equipped to showcase their ability to dissect any problem statement and interpret what the model results mean for business decision making. This also helps us to differentiate UpGrad-IIITB students in the eyes of the recruiters.
What are some of the tips for being ready for the data science hackathon?
If you're already familiar with one of the coding languages, go ahead and utilize it. Instead of learning a new tool, concentrate on solving problems. Most of your labor will be futile if you don't grasp the issue statement, the data, and the assessment metric. Reread all of the material accessible to you. It will assist you in determining a strategy/direction before creating a single line of code. Only once you have a firm grasp of the goal can you go on to the data exploration step.
Ensemble modelling is a great tool for improving your model's performance. It is the skill of integrating different findings from several models to improve the model's stability and predictive capability. In your team, try to locate someone with complementary talents.
What are the AV points in Analytics Vidhya?
The world's leading data science community and knowledge portal is Analytics Vidhya. Datahack contest scores and user rankings might help you figure out where you are as a data scientist and evaluate your progress. Points are not awarded to anonymous users since this may reveal the participant's identity. You can't opt to be anonymous during a hackathon if you want to get points. The awards specify the maximum points for a hackathon. If you participate in more than one hackathon, the points from each one are simply put together. The users' overall ranking is determined by their total points earned throughout all hackathons.
