From April 4 to April 6, International IDAO-2019 data analysis finals organized by the HSE Faculty of Computer Science and Yandex with the support of Sberbank were held at Yandex HQ. 31 teams reached the finals. More than a thousand could not go past the qualifying stage, in which it was necessary to solve a problem from the muon research group of the LHCb collaboration of the Large Hadron Collider. The 36-hour finals, as in the past year, were full of surprises. Crazy ideas worked, the teams found themselves without a captain but still pushed forward, and the winner was not part of any team.
Yandex.Taxi Emil Kayumov: 'This is one of our real tasks — to be able to predict the waiting time for the next order for a taxi driver at the airport, so that drivers can better understand how long they have to wait for a client. The specificity is that we place orders in the order of taxi drivers' arrival at the airport, because, unlike the city, passengers have only one point where they can call a taxi. Drivers know how many cars are in front of them, but it is more convenient to know how much time to wait for their order. In some cases, you can be closer to the terminal or take a break and have a cup of coffee, and sometimes wait for an order for so long that it is better to return to the city center. In general, IDAO participants solved this problem approximately the same way we did, but you could see some good ideas that we hadn't thought of. For example, someone in his decision took into account the influence of different days of the week and holidays on the number of drivers and passengers. This is not exactly a business task, it will not help the company to make more money, but it will make life more comfortable for drivers.'
'We saw the poster at the university and thought: why not try it, we are scientists! So we registered on the last day. We are not so well-prepared, to be honest. We thought that we would see the problem and try to solve it, just as it happens in real life.The team formed spontaneously: we are friends and we study together in the Master Data Science programme in Innopolis. There should have been three of us, a full team, but the captain recently had a surgery and was unable to arrive. So, the two of us had to do our best. During the finals we had a lot of crazy ideas, applied everything that came to mind. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't.'
The top three teams received prizes from IDAO 2019 partners. Lenovo recognized the winners with the most powerful LEGION Y740 laptops and x705L tablets, and Yandex gave third place winners Yandex.Phones. In addition, the results of the Olympiad will be taken into account in the candidate's portfolio when applying to the Master's programme at the HSE Faculty of Computer Science, and it will be possible to enroll at the Yandex Data Analysis School without online testing and examinations. This opportunity will be provide to the participants of the first 10 teams in the IDAO ranking. The only thing they need to do is to take an interview.
