For the second year in a row, student groups from the Department of Statistics have placed in the top three in the SAS Analytics Shootout. This year, two groups entered and both placed! As noted by the competition organizers: "This year’s selection of winners was very difficult due to the large number of outstanding submissions." We are proud of our two teams and wish them both the best of luck. The final results will be announced during the Analytics 2015 Conference to be held in Las Vegas in October 2015.
The student teams and their faculty advisors are:
Team A: Wenbo Wu (Captain), Lina Liao, Fei Liu; Advisor: TN Sriram
Team B: Hao Tong (Captain), Anzhi Li, Richard Ross, Yan Wang, Guohui Zhao; Advisor: Jaxk Reeves
