House Price Prediction Challenge – The Latest Hackathon For Data Scientists

We are back with a new hackathon and this one is a month-long challenge based on a community-contributed dataset. In this hackathon, we are challenging the machinehack community to build a regression model to analyze and accurately predict the house prices in India.

Accurately predicting house prices can be a daunting task. The buyers are just not concerned about the size(square feet) of the house and there are various other factors that play a key role to decide the price of a house/property.
