Problem Statements for the Hackathon

Problem Statement 1:

Modeling air pollutant concentration at the side of road given traffic congestion

View More Download

In an urban setting typically people like to walk on the road. We would like to create a predictive application to provide guideline which road and area to pick for walk given traffic congestion on the road at various time of the day, weather condition etc.

  • Create a model which estimates the pollutant concentration at the road side at various time of the day.
  • Tie together weather condition, wind direction etc in the model.
  • Expectation is they provide a relative concentration not an absolute concentration number.
Suggested Approach

Utilize Gaussian and Dense Gas Statistical Models for Pm10, PM 2.5 the small pollutant

Provided Data Set

We will provide 3 weeks of traffic data of few busy roads of Bangalore and Hyderabad. We can also provide weather data for that time period of those cities.

Problem Statement 2:

Weather Forecasting Modelling

View More Download

We have weather data for over 350 cities for last ten years. Weather data contains following set of data for each cities:

  • Datetime
  • Dewpoint
  • Humidity
  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Time
  • Time Zone
  • Visibility
  • Wind Direction
  • Wind Speed
  • Pollen
  • UV index
  • Yesterday Max Temperature
  • Yesterday Min Temperature
  • Precipitation Today
  • Cloud Description
  • Latitude
  • Longitude
  • City Name

Can we develop a model to forecast weather for future dates based on historical data patterns? Any additional data can be applied as appropriate.

  • Develop predictive / forecasting model for weather hourly data.
  • Preferred technology stack MLib or H2O
  • Accepted prediction/forecasting accuracy 90%
Provided Data Set

We will provide Melbourne's weather data from 2006 to 2017
