Traffic deaths across the United States increased 14% over the last two years. In 2016, nearly 6,000 pedestrians died – the highest number in more than two decades. Data science collaboration has the potential to reverse this trend – this Challenge aims to do just that.
What is the Challenge?
The National Transportation Data Challenge is a series of community problem-solving events, roundtables, hackathons, demonstrations, and tutorials/trainings to build and strengthen collaborative data science projects that advance transportation safety.
