Yelp Dataset Challenge 2019

We challenge students to use our data in innovative ways and break ground in research. Here are some examples of topics we find interesting, but remember these are only to get you thinking and we welcome novel approaches!

Photo Classification
Maybe you’ve heard of our ability to identify hot dogs (and other foods) in photos. Or how we can tell you if your photo will be beautiful or not. Can you do better?

Natural Language Processing & Sentiment Analysis
What’s in a review? Is it positive or negative? Our reviews contain a lot of metadata that can be mined and used to infer meaning, business attributes, and sentiment.

Graph Mining
We recently launched our Local Graph but can you take the graph further? How do user’s relationships define their usage patterns? Where are the trend setters eating before it becomes popular?
