Abstract

We present LiveDataLab, a novel general cloud-based platform that facilitates data science education at scale by enabling instructors to oer hands-on data science assignments using large real-world datasets. Using real course assignments as examples, our demonstration will walk attendees through the process of an instructor deploying an assignment, students working on and submitting assignments, and leaderboard-based competition and automated grading to demonstrate the major functions and benets of LiveDataLab.
