Disrupting Healthcare through Machine Learning

A Wintersession Student Data Challenge
Hosted by the Institute for Applied Computational Science

Thursday, January 18 and Friday, January 19, 2018

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning applications are reshaping the healthcare industry -- what if this transformation meant more affordable healthcare for every patient?

Fraudulent claims totaling billions of dollars have been widely reported in the news. Although these fraudulent claims constitute only a small fraction of the overall claims, they carry a very high price tag. In fact, the resulting rise in healthcare costs represents the difference between making healthcare accessible for millions of Americans or not. In this Challenge, you will be provided with healthcare insurance claims data and asked to identify the fraudulent claims. Will you be able to detect them?

Students will play for fun, pride, and prizes!  All members of the winning team will receive a parrot minidrone!
