Notes to Lecturers

The first ASEAN Data Science Explorers competition, organised by the ASEAN Foundation and SAP, aims to enhance awareness and appreciation of an ASEAN Community among young people through digital literacy intervention.

This analytics competition will be run at a national and regional level with the use of the SAP Analytics Cloud software. The target recipients of this initiative are university students of any major, including Political Science, from any university in ASEAN.

This competition is meant for all students regardless of their level of IT knowledge. Contestants do not need to have any programming knowledge to join. The analytics software is user-friendly and easy to learn. As long as they have a analytical mind and enjoy presenting their ideas backed with facts, students will do well in this competition.

All teams must register by 31-July and submit their entries by 11-September. Shortlisting process will take place in the middle of October before culminating in National Finals during November 2017 and the ASEAN Face-Off at the end of November 2017.
