Amsterdam Data Challenge 2018

Amsterdam Data Challenge 2018

This year’s edition of the Amsterdam Data Challenge, ADC for short, will be hosted by the City of Amsterdam in partnership with the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The ADC is focussed on a relatable problem, namely the housing pricing in Amsterdam combined with a service many of us have used before: Airbnb. This year, during the ADC, you will help the City of Amsterdam unravel how Airbnb is affecting the housing sector in Amsterdam. You will be competing in teams of four students, you can apply alone or as (a part of) a team. The best performing team will not go home empty-handed, they will win a grand prize which is to be announced in the following weeks.
