UofSC National Big Data Health Science Conference

The 2nd Annual Big Data Health Science Case Competition will be held virtually between January 29 – 31, 2021 before the University of South Carolina’s National Big Data Health Science Conference, scheduled for February 5 – 6, 2021. Last year’s winner was Duke University, so it is time for others to compete to dethrone them. The Big Data Case Competition is intended to provide enthusiastic teams of graduate and senior undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the analysis of big datasets in healthcare. This year’s challenge will focus on solving the inappropriate use of healthcare using a data analytics approach. Each participating team will analyze the case and datasets. During this period, the teams must identify the most prominent issues and develop a strategy to address key issues to help healthcare organizations achieve their goals of reducing inappropriate care utilization. Team members will work together to present their methods, analyses, and results at the Big Data Health Science Center Case Competition virtually. A panel of industry and academic experts will judge the presentations based on each team’s use of full analytics tools/processes, from framing the problem to data use, model building, innovation and communicating the solutions to decision-makers. Registration For Case Competition Is Now Open!

Mobile App Development Positions Available

Looking for students to build a mobile app. The structure of the app will be very similar to a social media platform like Instagram, but it’s function will be different. The work will be completed remotely so students must be able to use zoom for meetings and have flexibility for meeting times. There will be multiple students (possibly from different universities) working on this. The students will be paid $1,000 each and will receive the payment in increments as they complete checkpoints throughout the development of the app. To find out more information please email brownj1@ufl.edu
