Big Data Award 2017

Alexandra Sattler and Fabienne Schmidt are the winners of the "Big Data Award 2017" of our joint seminar with Commerzbank.

They have implemented a "K-Nearest Neighbar" method for determining a peer group in R, which allows the comparison of the account behavior of each individual customer with this peer group. They also developed an interactive website with the Shiny R package that shows how this solution can be used for each of the 10,000 customers they considered. Very impressive solution. Congratulations! Thanks also to Commerzbank for the very nice price. The other teams also presented very nice solutions and they can also look forward to a dinner on the 50th floor of the Commerzbanktower.
