The quest to find the best data scientists by solving social impact challenges.
We are not your regular data science competition.

We don't care if you have a better 0.01 score on your metric.
We want you to look at the challenges and think about how the data
could help solve them. If it sounds good, this League is for you!

This Edition's Topic
Data-Driven Cities
According to the UN, 68% of the world population is projected to live in urban areas by 2050. With ever growing cities, new challenges arise associated with population growth - but also
a lot of interesting potential solutions.

We want to join in helping to achieve the
11th UN Sustainable Goal - Sustainable Cities and Communities. All of the problems and datasets will be provided by entities related to “Data-Driven Cities”.

Social ImpactUse data to solve challenges related to the UN SDGs and share your work with the world through open-source code.

LearningParticipate in technical workshops and round tables, exchange ideas, and learn from the best.

NetworkingGet to know companies, organizations, and fellow data scientists from all around the globe.

Open-Source magic
At World Data League, we believe in the power of the community - the entire world as a team. We see in shared knowledge the key to solving social impact issues. 

For that reason, when the competition ends, we write a public report summarizing the best strategies, data used, and insights on every challenge. We believe this report and the open-source code will help other entities solve social impact challenges.
