DSCI Students win Best Overall in Police Data Challenge

This fall, teams from the Data Visualization class submitted to the Police Data Challenge competition put on by the American Statistical Association.  One of our teams won Best Overall Presentation, out of more than 70 teams from across the country!  The competition required teams to analyze data on millions of 911 calls and make recommendations to the city. Congrats to Jimmy Hickey, Kapil Khanal, and Luke Peacock; along with fame and fortune, they will also be presenting their findings to the Seattle Police Department!
