An overview of your account and the next submission round


The NBA Data Challenge, brought to you by G-Research, gives you the chance to demonstrate your ability to use large data-sets to predict basketball results.

Create a model to accurately predict basketball scores using NBA data, and you’ll be in the running to win a share of our £30,000 prize pool.

No knowledge of basketball is required, just the ability to work with data.
