Put your coding skills to use this month on Rosette API for Rapidminer and win cash prizes

Are you looking for an opportunity to show off your data science expertise? Have your work published by a leading text analytics software company? Improve your skills? Win awesome prizes? This is the contest for you.

Running December 1st through January 1st, 2017, our Data Scientist Challenge invites students to use the Rosette API extension on Rapidminer to imagine a potential business use-case and create an analysis demonstrating how the two technologies perform together.

Sign up for the Rosette API and use promo code CHALLENGE so we can give you access to our Starter plan for free (40,000 calls/month). If you’re already signed up on our Free plan (capped at 10,000 calls/month), shoot us an email and we’ll bump up your calls. Get creative with the data you use and the visualizations you choose to show off your results. Once you’re done, share your results with us by sending an email to jeanne@basistech.com before January 1st at 11:59pm EST.

Submission Requirements

  • A written description of your use case (the scenario/problem your analysis solves)
  • A description of how your analysis works to solve the problem
  • Screenshots of graphs and visualizations that show off your results

Winners will be revealed on Friday, January 13th! Will the infamous date bring you bad luck or good?
