Ernst & Young (EY) 2022 Better Working World Data Challenge

If you are a university student, young professional with less than two years of experience or an EY employee looking to learn more about data science and are interested in building a sustainable future – join us as we ask:

  • Life in all its various forms is biodiversity. This variety of life is fundamental to the function of ecosystems, the health of forests – and even our prosperity.
  • Help us build computational models to locate biodiversity, specifically frogs. Frogs are a go-to for scientists wanting to study the health of a particular ecosystem.
  • The winning outputs will help scientists, policymakers and governments to protect and predict the richness of biodiversity in a specific area.

Level 1: Local Frog Discovery Tool


  • This challenge is to predict the occurrence of a single species of frog for a single location using a single data source at a coarse spatial resolution.
  • The output will be a species distribution model of one species of frog. Species distribution models are one of the most widely used ecological tools, a cornerstone in many countries worldwide of environmental regulation and conservation.

Level 2: Global Frog Discovery Tool


  • Participants who choose to undertake Challenge 2 will develop a species distribution model (SDM) for nine selected frog species across Australia, Costa Rica, and South Africa using a variety of open-source geospatial datasets.
  • This challenge is for those with intermediate to advanced data skills.

Level 3: Frog Counting Tool

  • This challenge asks you to build a computational model that can predict the count of frogs for a specific location using multiple data sets, and to validate your model on two additional locations. This challenge is for those with expert-level data skills.
  • Why frogs? Frogs are an indicator species. This means they are a go-to for scientists wanting to find out more about the environmental health of a particular ecosystem.
