Details

We meet every two weeks to learn more about data science by discussing Kaggle competitions (https://www.kaggle.com). If you want to get better at data wrangling, feature engineering, model selection or just want to have fun solving non-trivial data science problems, this is the right group to join!

This time we will discuss the AdTracking Fraud Detection Challenge (https://www.kaggle.com/c/talkingdata-adtracking-fraud-detection). We'll be led through the competition by Matt E. (Thanks, Matt!)

To get the most out of the meetup, please try to look at the competition beforehand. It's OK if you don't understand it all. The meetup is for questions and discussion.

At the end of the meeting we will discuss which competitions we want to look at for future meetups. Bring your suggestions!

Thanks to VentureLabs (http://www.venturelabs.ca/) for the meeting space!
