Manipal ProLearn Data Science Students among Top 10 Finalists at Data Artistry Tournament 2018
By Arijit Banerjee
The world produces 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day and organisations across industries are betting more on this to take their businesses to the next level. No wonder, data scientists are the new rock stars on the floor! However, it’s not that cosy a job as data is largely complex and visualising it in the right manner is an art that needs to be mastered. On that note, RRD and Gramener conducted the Data Artistry Tournament 2018 in partnership with NASSCOM where 10 teams showcased their data visualisation skills.

As many as 176 entries were nominated from across the country out of which only 10 were finalised to present at the event that was held at the RRD in Chennai on 17 March 2018. Manipal ProLearn was one of the 10 finalists and the team comprising of Archana KM, Soumya Raj Kumari and Kavya Sundeep presented their data visualisation on the Indian Premiere League, popularly known as the IPL.

At the Tournament
- Organisers had shared a data set with the 10 finalists
- Each team had to visualise key insights from those data sets and present it to the panel of judges at the tournament
- Each team was given 10 minutes to visualise and five minutes were reserved for a ‘question and answer’ session
The team from Manipal ProLearn derived key insights from the complex data set and received a lot of accolades from the elite judges that included Seth Appel, VP, Productivity Solutions, RRD, Raveendran Jepegnanam, Vice President, Business Performance Improvement, RRD, NT Arunkumar, Board Director and Advisor, Tata Group, and S Anand CEO and Chief Data Scientist, Gramener.
Talking to our correspondent, the participants said that “we are glad to have been among one of the 10 finalists”. They further stated that “these are the kind of exposure that help us become better, smarter and more confident and we appreciate the opportunities that our institution (Manipal ProLearn) provides.
“I would take this opportunity to appreciate the efforts put in by Data Science pedagogues at Manipal ProLearn to help us imbibe the skills of data visualisation.”

The need to create the next generation of leaders

Manipal ProLearn aims to deliver quality by ensuring world-class facilities such as pedagogy and infrastructure to create future leaders.
