Kaggle is proud to announce a world first! In-line with the Premier’s State Plan for Open Government, the New South Wales Minister for Roads, David Borger, today announced the first ever predictive modeling competition for government.

The NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) is offering $10,000 for the algorithm that best predicts travel times on Sydney’s M4 freeway. Two years’ worth of historical data on road use between 2008 and 2010 has been made available for the competition.

The predictive model will be used to enhance the RTA’s recently launched live traffic website that provides information to motorists on incidents and congestion.
