The Newcrest Crowd
This competition has finished.
Welcome to the first online competition of The Newcrest Crowd.
This one month, global online competition invites data scientists and innovators from around the world to develop a prediction model for tailings density (and therefore water consumption) in Newcrest's gold processing operations.
The Newcrest Crowd is a new and ongoing program to work with the best innovators worldwide and identify, develop and implement new solutions for real-world, multi-million dollar applications. This challenge is the first of an ongoing series of challenges that will open real opportunities in one of the worlds largest industries.
The global resources sector faces close to $2 trillion of impact in the next 10 years from new technologies. This impact will be driven by individuals skilled in data science, software development, and hardware engineering.
People with curiosity and drive,
people who love a challenge,
people like you!
