DataScience@UL-FRI Project Competition 2022

On Jun 21 we concluded the 2022 project competition. After a one year break, we were again able to execute the final event live! At this point we would again like to thank everyone who was a part of this competition. A special mention goes to our sponsors: Celtra, CREApro, Databox, Garex, In516ht, Garex, Siemens and Zemanta. Without our sponsors there would be no data science project competition.

The competition started in Jan 2022, it ran for 6 months and saw 14 teams work on 11 different project topics base on practical problems from our colleagues from the industry. As a result all of the end results were very good. We are already looking forward to next year’s competition!

Even though all solutions were good, there were a couple that stood out from the rest. This year’s awardess are:

  • The best undergraduate team award goes to Ivan Nikolov, Ardit Nela and Radoslav Atanasoski for their project Interpretable prediction of ad campaign complexity (Celtra).
  • The best non data science team award goes to Marko Hostnik and Gregor Kikelj for their project Supervised and unsupervised calibration of smart light sensor measurements (Garex).
  • The best non FRI team award goes to Neza Marija Slosar and Miha Likar for their project Automated customer email classification (In516ht with Zavarovalnica Triglav).
  • The overall third place award goes to Marko Ivanovski, Matej Kalc, Andraz Znidar for their project Stock optimization based on sales forecasting - EKWB (CREApro).
  • The overall second place award goes to David Ocepek, Klementina Pirc, Matej Miocic for their project A recommendation system for Siemens customers (Siemens).
