Prediction Events

Data Science Prediction Event

Data science techniques are rapidly transforming businesses in a broad range of sectors. While marketing and social applications have received most attention to date, geotechnical engineering can also benefit from data science tools that are now readily available.

In the context of the ISFOG2020 conference in Austin, TX, a prediction event is launched which invites geotechnical engineers to share knowledge and gain hands-on experience with machine learning models.

The data science prediction event is hosted on Kaggle, where the data files can be downloaded.



Coming Soon: Predicting the behavior of offshore foundations subject to cyclic loading

Predicting the behaviour of offshore foundations subject to cyclic loading remains a key challenge facing geotechnical engineers. To stimulate discussion on this topic at ISFOG 2020, the conference organisers will be hosting a prediction event – in which participants will be provided details of a (model) foundation that is subjected to cyclic loading, along with soil parameters that would typically be available to a designer, and will be asked to predict how the foundation performed. Results will be collated and (anonymously) presented at ISFOG 2020.

We anticipate the event will open in October 2019 and run until early 2020 – and more details will be available soon.
