2021 Better Working World Data Challenge
On 1 March, EY launched the 2021 Better Working World Data Challenge for university students and early career data scientists, part of an annual global data science program looking at how we can use data and AI to find tangible solutions to real-world problems and help build a better world.
In close partnership with Microsoft, the 2021 Better Working World Data Challenge tasks students with developing an automated fire-edge detection and forecasting model using airborne and satellite imagery from NASA, to help tackle the global threat of bushfires.

What’s in it for students?
- Free access to Microsoft’s cutting-edge technology stack, Azure
- Access to industry expert tutorials and training
- Free Microsoft IT certifications
- The opportunity to collaborate with students around the world
- The chance to win up to US$10,000 in cash prizes

In addition to the Global Challenge, EY Ireland has also launched a Local Challenge: the top 10 participants with the highest rankings in Ireland and Northern Ireland will be able to connect with local judges and win up to €1000 and an interview for either an Internship or Graduate Programme role.
The Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for students and early-stage career data scientists to gain valuable experience by making a real-world impact on how bushfires are managed.

Everybody has a natural talent. At EY, we want to help you develop yours, naturally.
If you’ve got a keen eye for photography, then you probably have an eye for investigation. If you’ve got a talent for computer games, then you probably have a talent for problem-solving. Even if you just like playing sport, you might be a leader in waiting.
The analytical brains, the inquisitive minds, the networking personalities, they’re the kind of people who thrive in the EY Undergraduate & Graduate Programmes and they’re the kinds of people we need to help us solve new problems in new ways.
We think the future you’ll live in will be full of things we haven’t even thought of yet. If we’re going to think in a new way, we need people that think in a new way and that means hiring people who think differently, act differently and work differently.
