We are looking for the best correlations and their visualisation
The Institute of Data Analysis and Informatics of the Corvinus University of Budapest, with the professional support of Bixpert Ltd organizes a Data Visualization Competition. Our main goal is to find talented people who are good at exploring the relationships behind data and presenting them in the form of convincing visualisations. This competition will give you the opportunity to put your knowledge of economics, IT and data analysis to good use and to develop your talents to the full.
As an ambassador of MicroStrategy in Hungary, Bixpert is proud to support university programs in business intelligence and data analytics. We provide the industry’s leading analytics and data discovery tool for all startups in the form of MicroStrategy Workstation, and we offer over 20 years of experience in the form of workshops and lectures to help you prepare as thoroughly as possible.
There are only winners here
The competition is for everyone who wants to improve their skills in data analysis and visual data discovery. The grand prize is 100.000 HUF, but in addition to the valuable prizes, of course, entering this type of competition (not to mention if it was also successful) looks good on your CV or LinkedIn profile.
Several data sets are available in the competition. Choose the one that provides the most relevant context for you, explore it, and then visualise the results in the form of a convincing visualisation/dashboard.
The optional topics are:
Board games (BoardGameGeek)
Board games are enjoying a renaissance these days. BoardGameGeek’s database is a great way to delve into this world and unlock the secrets behind the data.
Top 250 movies (IMDb)
We love a good movie and we check the IMDb ratings a lot. We thought you might also like to analyse the top-rated films and we think this database will be a great way to do that.
Health expenditure (WHO)
This dataset contains health expenditure data from over 190 WHO member states, providing a wide range of indicators to analyse going back decades. Make the most of the available data, show trends, correlations and geographic analyses.
Be creative! Add to the data sets as you see fit!
