BBDC 2023: Into the competition with a new structure

On March 1, 2023, the time has finally come: The "Bremen Big Data Challenge" (BBDC) is entering its eighth round!

The BBDC is a programming competition on the topic of data analysis. It is sponsored by "JUST ADD AI", "neuland - Büro für Informatik" and "Die Sparkasse Bremen". The BBDC is supported by the Alfred Wegener Institute (Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research), the scientific focus "Minds, Media, Machines" and the "DICE" research group (University of Paderborn).

New this year: The BBDC will have a Competition Space and will offer a Student Track and a Professional Track. This creates two levels of difficulty aimed at different target groups. For the first time, non-students will also be able to take part.

The cash prizes for the Student Track are sponsored by the companies "JUST ADD AI" and "neuland - Büro für Informatik" as well as "Die Sparkasse Bremen" and range from 100 euros (5th place) to 500 euros (1st place). In both tracks (Student and Professional), the winning teams will each be awarded a trophy, places 1-5 with medals and all participants in the 30 best teams with attractive non-cash prizes.

This year's BBDC starts on 01.03.2023 at 00:00 and ends on 31.03.2023 at 23:59.
