WiDS Hyderabad Datathon Workshop


We will take a closer look at data similar to the WiDS 2020 Datathon data from MIT’s GOSSIS Initiative, but instead of predicting patient survival, this year the WiDS Datathon will focus on creating models to classify whether patients have been diagnosed with a certain type of diabetes which could inform treatment in the ICU. The datathon is suitable for beginners through experts, with everyone able to get something valuable out of the experience.
