How the winners of the $1 billion lottery data analysis competition got the big bucks
Updated July 16, 2018 15:14:47 The $1.9 billion data analysis prize money was handed out to four winners of a lottery data competition organised by Australian data analysis company Eeda.
The winners are all former Australian Government employees and they are all in their early 20s.
The competition was run by the Australian Data Analysis Group and the winning company was called Eeda Data.
The data analysis team at Eeda was one of a group of data analysis companies invited by the Government to participate in the data analysis competitions.
The team behind the data analysing competition included the data analysts at the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the Australian Institute of Criminology and Criminological Research, the Commonwealth Bureau of Statistics, the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research, and the Office of National Statistics.
The four winners were: Matthew Smith from Adelaide, who previously worked for the Australian Border Force and as a computer programmer.
He joined Eeda as a data analyst in 2013 and was subsequently promoted to data analyst manager.
He is currently the chief data analyst for the Department of Finance.
He said he was “extremely proud” of the competition and the data he collected.
Mr Smith said his work had been done for the department, but the government had not been keen on the work and he had not applied for any of the data analytics awards. “
The challenge I faced was that I had to think about a whole range of data types and what that means, and I had no idea how to use those types of tools to collect data.”
Mr Smith said his work had been done for the department, but the government had not been keen on the work and he had not applied for any of the data analytics awards.
“They were just like, ‘well, we’re not interested in you.
That’s your data’,” he said.
“That’s when I said to myself, ‘ok, what am I going to do?
What am I not going to say to get them to pay me?'”
Matthew Smith, data analyst Manager at Eida Data, said he is proud of his work for the Federal Government and believes the competition was a “win-win” for all involved.
“It’s great to be a part of this competition and be recognised and recognised by all the data science industry in Australia,” he said, adding that his team was “totally surprised” to receive the prize money.
The competition has been widely praised by data scientists and the Australian Government, with some calling it the “largest data analysis challenge in the world”. “
And that’s a big bonus.”

It has attracted a number of awards, including the Commonwealth Data Analysis Award and the Commonwealth Datasource Award, which was awarded to Eeda in July 2017.
The Government has not commented on whether it has made any payments to the four winners.
Eeda has previously won data analysis awards from the Australian Federal Police, the Department for Business, Innovation and Employment, and other organisations.
