These challenges are conducted to let you work on some interesting problems solved by companies in today's world. Such a hands-on, problem-solving experience can not only help you get your next job but also teach you the latest ways of building models. This is the fourth challenge of our Machine Learning challenge streak.

This 30-day challenge is designed to help you showcase, win, and improve your Machine Learning skills by competing and learning from fellow participants.


  • 1st prize: 700 USD *
  • 2nd prize: 500 USD *

* Cash, vouchers, or credits of an equivalent amount will be given.

Join us for an exciting webinar on Evaluating and Improving Machine Learning Models

Why should you participate?

  • To learn and use the latest open-source libraries and packages
  • To learn by working on live problems because it excites you more than learning from books and tutorials!
  • To build your fan following in our community
  • Of course, grab cash prizes

Who should participate?

  • Working professionals
  • Data Science/Machine Learning enthusiasts
  • College students (if you understand basics of predictive modelling)



  • In order to be able to claim your prizes, your HackerEarth profile must be more than 50% complete.
  • The prizes will be disbursed before the end of December.

Create and validate your model using the IBM Data Science Experience (DSX) platform!

IBM DSX is a powerful computational engine based on Apache Spark Executors. It has a strong computing capacity in the back end. It currently supports Python, R, and Scala.

Using IBM DSX, you can create a Python, R, or Scala, notebook-based project and create a data connection to your data source. You have options to load all types of Machine Learning algorithms that are supported by runtime from KNN and RandomForest to TensorFlow.

You can export your notebook to us for further validation after you have:

  1. Loaded your data
  2. Created data sets
  3. Modeled, trained, and validated your data
