This Omdena Local Chapter Challenge runs for 5 weeks and is a unique experience to try and grow your skills in a collaborative and safe environment with a diverse mix of people from all over the world. 

You will work on solving a local problem, initiated by Karachi, Pakistan.

The problem

Problem: Weather forecasts in Pakistan are often inaccurate, which can lead to problems for businesses, government agencies, and individuals.

Impact: A more accurate weather forecasting model would have a significant impact on the people of Pakistan, helping businesses make informed decisions, government agencies plan for natural disasters, and individuals protect themselves from extreme weather.

How the challenge will help: The challenge will help solve this problem by allowing participants to develop a more accurate weather forecasting model.

The goals

The goal of this project is to develop a machine learning model that can improve the accuracy of weather forecasts for Pakistan. The model will be trained on a dataset of historical weather data, and it will be able to predict future weather conditions with greater accuracy than current models.
