Show us your Answers! Submissions for CAVU
Open is better, sharing is key. We are empowering all algorithmic & data science specialists to submit open-source algorithms and programmed solutions to complex real-world business problems. The future of data is our sharing of knowledge and answers. We will post from time to time, non-proprietary algorithms we develop and challenge the community solve leading global problems with us.
Each year, CAVU will pick one winner who submitted the best solution to their proposed industry problem. Selection is based on:
- Complexity of business problem submitted
- Method and process used to solve the problem
- Quantifiable impact on stated business problem
- All solutions must be repeatable in process and result to qualify.
- Underlying mathematics, programming and tools must be disclosed
The top winner will be given the $20,000 prize, profiled on CAVU and offered an internship at our discretion.
