In the heat of a Formula E race, teams need fast access to insights that can help drivers make split-second decisions and cross the finish line first. Can your data-science skills help Envision Racing, one of the founding teams in the championship, take home even more trophies?
To do so, you will have to build a machine learning model that predicts the Envision Racing drivers’ lap times for the all-important qualifying sessions that determine what position they start the race in. Winning races involve a combination of both a driver’s skills and data analytics. To help the team you’ll need to consider several factors that affect performance during a session, including weather, track conditions, and a driver’s familiarity with the track.
Genpact, a leading professional services firm that focuses on digital transformation, is collaborating with Envision Racing, a Formula E racing team and digital hackathon platform MachineHack, a brainchild of Analytics India Magazine, is launching ‘Dare in Reality’.’ This two-week hackathon allows data science professionals, machine learning engineers, artificial intelligence practitioners, and other tech enthusiasts to showcase their skills, impress the judges, and stand a chance to win exciting cash prizes.
The FIA Formula E World Championship is the first fully electric international single-seater street racing series. Envision Racing uses digital technologies and human-centred design to stay ahead. As Envision Racing’s partner, Genpact uses data to deliver insights that help the team reach the podium and fulfil its purpose: to win the race against climate change.
Genpact Partners with the team to achieve three core goals: boosting the team’s racing performance, tackling the world’s biggest environmental challenge, and building and energizing a passionate, socially conscious fan base.
