As Booz Allen gears up for the second Data Science Bowl (DSB), Dr. Bob Cowen, Director of Hatfield Marine Science Center, said he’d participate again “in a heartbeat.” Cowen said, “The algorithms developed in the Data Science Bowl helped move our work ahead leaps and bounds. Without the winning algorithm from Team Deep Sea, it might have taken marine researchers more than two lifetimes to manually complete the classification process.” He added, “Just as important as the algorithm itself are the inroads the DSB made in rallying citizen scientists to work for the greater good.”
