Analytics India Magazine’s hackathon platform MachineHack, has come up with a new and challenging hackathon for data science enthusiasts. The new hackathon challenge is called Predict The Flight Ticket Price Hackathon, and the MachineHack users will have to predict a flight’s ticket prices based on the data given. The winners of the hackathon will win an invitation to the most exclusive analytics and machine learning conference in India, MachineCon.
Flight tickets price can be something hard to guess, today we might see a price, check out the price of the same flight tomorrow, it will be a different story. We might have often heard travellers saying that flight ticket prices are so unpredictable. Huh! Here we take on the challenge! As data scientists, we are gonna prove that given the right data anything can be predicted. Here you will be provided with prices of tickets for various airlines among other features.
