About the event

TuniHack is the right place for you! It’s a software-engineering Hackathon, to be held in Tunisia on November 26, 2016, that will give developers the opportunity to put into practice their coding-skills to solve real-world engineering challenges.

Why Data Science?

Many major industries are riding on a new wave of opportunity as collecting data and computation is becoming cheaper and more efficient. A decade ago, only major companies invested in data science. Now, almost all companies are collecting more and more data, but struggling to monetize it efficiently in decision making. There is a huge demand for qualified data scientists.

What is Data Science?

Deriving meaning from data by understanding how it fits into the larger picture of an organization. Think of business analytics that utilize CS, modeling, statistics, analytics, and mathematics. By 2020 the world will generate 50x the amount of information compared to 2011 [EMC.com]. The U.S. could face a shortage of up to 190,000 professionals with data science skills by 2018 [McKinsey Global Institute]. Business, healthcare, and urban living will all benefit from problems analyzed using data science.
