This season’s hackathon focuses on a critical social issue: developing models to predict metastatic cancer diagnoses within 90 days of screening.

WiBD teams will leverage the Women in Data Science (WiDS) Worldwide 2024 Datathon hosted on Kaggle, utilizing real-world data provided by Gilead Sciences.

The program is led by Chapter Hackathon Leads Anant Zohar (Bay Area Chapter), Aruna Nadesan (Pittsburgh Chapter), and Usha Ramalingam (St Louis Chapter), who are guiding their respective teams throughout the competition.

WiBD is also fortunate to have Deana Hsu, CSM, CPOSP, CHPC, and AI Consultant, on board as the WiBD Hackathon Agile Coach/Coordinator. Ms. Hsu will be ensuring teams stay on track by implementing Agile methodologies and best practices.
