WUST at hackathon CuValley Hack

On the weekend of June 11-13, the data analytics competition – a hackathon CuValley Hack – took place. DMC and WUST representatives were among 69 teams and almost 300 participants tackling three challenges set by KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. WildLab Team consisting of: Mateusz Góralczyk, Justyna Hebda-Sobkowicz, Anna Michalak, Bartłomiej Ziętek faced the problem of analyzing data from self-propelled mining machines in the context of predicting failures of their components. Despite hundreds of gigabytes of analyzed data and almost 40 hours of hard work, they did not advance to the final six in their category.

The second team, Tremor Hunters, composed of Paweł Trybała, Dariusz Głąbicki and Karolina Owczarz, tried to create a model predicting the occurrence of tremors in the area of underground exploitation. Tremor Hunters made it to the final four of the best teams in their category and presented their results during the live stream and Q&A session with the competition jury. Unfortunately, two competing solutions found more recognition among the judges and won the main prizes.

Various accompanying competitions were also held during the hackathon. We are pleased to announce that the knowledge quiz was completely dominated by representatives of DMC and WUST, who took 5 places among the TOP6!
