Technologies and resources are evolving. As data collection becomes ubiquitous, our abilities to manipulate and create meaningful insights must also evolve. With the ubiquity of data comes a reduction of cost; with that reduction comes opportunity.
Teck Resources will provide teams with data sets regarding truck fuel consumption within the mining industry. Teams will be asked to create a working solution to Tech Resources data set problem.
