IBM Cloud Data Challenge – Outcome Prediction using AutoAI

  • Status: Closed
  • Prize: $11000
  • Entries Received: 49
  • Winner: Vehement

Contest Brief

Can an AI predict human and real-world outcomes? Could an AI predict what type of shirt you’ll wear tomorrow morning? Put it to the test using IBM Cloud’s “Auto AI”, a Watson Studio feature that can take data sets and predict human decision-making.

“AutoAI” is a new feature in IBM Cloud’s Watson Studio, a data science platform that helps data scientists all over the world build and scale AI. This new feature can take a data set (e.g. csv file) and decipher how to best predict a decision a human would have made from that data.

IBM wants you to use AutoAI to gather insightful information on a data set of your choosing (ideally real-world data) and write an entertaining and informative blog post about your experience with AutoAI. Higher consideration will be given to entries with data sets and outcomes that address social impacts on global challenges. For example, analyzing factors to recommend environmentally friendly and/or cost-effective power solutions for a new house.

For an overview of how AutoAI works, watch
https://www.ibm.com/demos/collection/IBM-Watson-Studio-AutoAI/?lc=en

DETAILS
To start working on Watson Studio, create a free account on IBM Cloud: https://cloud.ibm.com/registration?cm_sp=freelancer-_-AutoAI-_-cta

- Select an interesting data set and load it into Watson Studio AutoAI
- Use AutoAI to find the best model to predict some decision made based on the data
- Deploy the AI model created by Watson AI as a web service and data notebook
- (optional) Wrap the web service with a web page so that users can input some data and get the answer from the model themselves.
- Finally, write an entertaining/informative public blog post about the experience (the blog post could be a "how to", a "review", "things I learned" or anything else as long as it talks about using Auto AI)

I have checked every time winner are same I guess they are employee of IBM. what you can do delete article wherever you had written. and be careful in future.

      Hi, the prize money has not been dropped. As you can probably see from the description the 40,000$ was the entire pool. Unfortunately the freelancer platform does not allow us to split the award, which is why the prize money was lowered and other winning entries are being awarded. If you have won, you still have received the prize money as per the breakdown

    Hello, Guys If you don't become a winner. Don't defame IBM and also don't delete the post that you had created. Also, don't put a negative review about AutoAI, just for losing here. don't think that your work went to the bin. We all have learned something new. cheers, Likith

    Dear Family,
    Regardless of the final results, I want to share my work with you, friends!
    These days, e-businesses target specific regions of the world in highly competitive online markets. But their success depends on the shift in internet usage rate rather than the growth of population. Therefore, series of AI experiments were conducted to find out the relative importance of various factors in influencing this rate. Its result can be of strategic importance in forecasting the markets’ potential. Please visit the below article to go through my AutoAI experiments.
    https://naumanmirza310.blogspot.com/2021/05/using-ibm-autoai-to-analyze-factors.html
    Other fellows are also encouraged to share their experience.
    Please also check out the IBM accredited ‘Badge’ which can be earned after completing (8 hours) training & assessment of ‘IBM AutoAI’ via below link.

    Also remember, we are all winners because we all learnt a lot during this contest.

    Thank you! I added a website link to my blog post. It may not work correctly for some time. I already wrote to the hoster (pythonanywhere) to add my site to the whitelist. So far, the host restricts work with the IBM API, but the site will work normally soon.
