During the weekend of 26 March, teams of undergraduate students from University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University competed in ASA DataFest 2021 at Edinburgh (bit.ly/3pP8dsm) to investigate a large, complex and surprise dataset.
This year, the event was held online through Gather Town and Slack. Students from many disciplines competed, including actuarial science students in the UK and Malaysia.
Members of the IFoA Scottish Board joined other mentors from the data science community in industry and academia to support students and judge the entries.
Congratulations to actuarial science students Greig Rowe, Benjamin Gardner and Matthew Reidy, who were among the winners!
