The McGill Food Analytics Club (McGill FAC) is a student-driven data analytics club that focuses on food. As the world is heading towards a massive food crisis the next decade, there is an urgent need to come up with solutions. Inspired and supported by Desautels Professor Juan Camilo Serpa, the club members want to contribute to solving this food crisis with data analytics. This includes research, coding and outreach.
On March 14th, join Professor Juan Serpa for the introduction lecture: The Food Crisis: What can data do for us?
On March 16th, as its inaugural event, the McGill FAC is hosting a food-focused data Hackathon. This free event is an opportunity to show off your programming and analytics skills in teams of 2 to 4 people. Students will be provided with a data set and asked to come up with their best statistical analyses and predictions.
Students from all McGill faculties are encouraged to participate. If you don’t have a team, feel free to sign up and we will match you with other participants.
Visit the McGill FAC Facebook page for all the event details.
