The Data Arcade Tournament is an annual public sector visual analytics competition, organised by the Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Division (DSAID) of the Government Technology Agency of Singapore (GovTech).

Believing that visual analytics is not difficult to learn and use, the Tournament is meant to encourage more public officers to start harnessing the power of data and applying data science knowledge in their daily work.

Workshops were provided for officers who were new to visual analytics, while experienced officers were encouraged to explore new datasets and convey their insights in a coherent data story.
