Deloitte DataFest 2018


Deloitte Datathon 2018 

Do you have what it takes to win our 24 hour Datathon?

Following on from the success of last year’s Datathon, Deloitte are hosting the “Financial Services for Good” Datathon Challenge on 19-20 March in our Edinburgh Office as an official Fringe event of DataFest 2018.

The challenge

The challenge will be “Financial Services for Good” – linking the concept of Financial Services information with trends in medical data and other social factors. This will lead towards the building of concepts, solutions and services to help address emerging financial distress or other issues.

This challenge will move the focus of this year’s event beyond the traditional scope of Financial services and will help to explore some of biggest challenges in society.
