Innovation Challenge – Final presentations on November 25th

Spirit of Math is excited to announce that over 29 teams registered to take on our challenge at this year’s International Innovation Challenge and out of these teams we have chosen Pied Piper from Carnegie Mellon University, Australia to represent us at the finals on November 25th! The competition focuses on the exciting area of customer analytics, and is being organized and hosted by the Smith School of Business in collaboration with Scotiabank Centre for Customer Analytics.

The participating teams will be tasked with completing a business case competition to “incubate industry specific advanced analytics business cases to drive industry adoption for business decision making.”

Representatives from Spirit of Math, Scotiabank, Smith School of Business, IBM Canada, Tech Mahindra, TD Canada, RBC, BMO, and Loblaw will serve as judges at the final event.

 We are excited to see Pied Piper and other teams work together to solve the cases at this year’s challenge! Best of luck to everyone participating!
