Details

After the summer break, We're happy to have KI labs as our host for this event! A big Thank You from Kaggle Munich as always!

For those new to Kaggle Munich, we are a community of hobbyists and professionals interested in data science, programming and of course solving challenges on kaggle.com

Whether you're new to data science or a hardened veteran, join us for drinks, food and exciting talks!

Talks:
1. “Kaggle Competition: Understanding Clouds from Satellite Images - Introduction from a host” - Stephan Rasp

Summary:
I will present an active Kaggle competition that I am co-organizing. The goal of the competition is to detect four cloud patterns from satellite images. The cloud patterns are called Sugar, Flower, Fish, and Gravel. In the talk, I will explain why climate scientists care about structures and clouds and how we ended up with these silly names. Then I will also delve into the details of what makes this image segmentation challenge a little different.

2. "ML-Navigator: Open source tutorial-based Machine Learning framework: IEEE-CIS Fraud Detection competition"-Maher Deeb.

Summary:
I have been working on developing an open-source project (ML-Navigator) for more than 2 months. The main goal is to help new Data Science joiners to jump in the Data Science world fast and confidently. I hope that I can make ML-Navigator a great chance for Kaggle Munich community to contribute to the open-source world. Together with the Kaggle Munich community, I hope that we can bring the project ahead to the level that ML-Navigator will be appreciated by the Data community.
