Yelp Dataset Challenge
Not only would we like to give you our data, we’d also like to announce the eighth round of the Yelp Dataset Challenge. We challenge you to use this data in an innovative way and break ground in research. Here are some examples of topics we find interesting, but remember these are only to get you thinking and we welcome novel approaches!
If you are a student and come up with an appealing project, you’ll have the opportunity to win one of ten Yelp Dataset Challenge awards for $5,000.
