Asyad Global Challenge powered by Hypermotion (Kaggle Days Meetups) are the event created to join and provide a networking opportunity to worldwide data science community. Due to limited number of spots at the event, we recruit participants on the basis of experience in data science/kaggle, skillset, as well as motivation, activity and engagement in building the community.

All teams can have up to 4 members. Yes, you can participate alone, however according to Kaggle statistics teams have higher chance to win.
