The only real way to learn Data Science is by getting your hands dirty. And thats what we will be doing for the next meetup. Last meetup we looked at this competition and had plenty of people participating and entering so this meetup we are back for more. If you want to be on the cutting edge of feature engineering and creative ways to build models you won't want to miss this. We will be looking at the 'Richter's Predictor: Modelling Earthquake Damage' competition: https://www.drivendata.org/competitions/57/nepal-earthquake/page/136/
As always we encourage you all to attempt the competition before coming to the meet up. It is fine if you attempt the competition but do not manage to make a submission or get a high score on the leaderboard. The purpose of this meetup is to work on the competition beforehand and then come to the group to share what you did and to ask questions about things you were unsure about.
Have a think about any research papers or Kaggle competitions you would like to discuss in future meetups. We will spend a few minutes on this at the end
