What we're about

This group is for everyone who loves and lives data science. If you have fun digging large amounts of data and you heart beats faster, when you have discovered an indication of a new pattern, if you like hacking and enjoy trying new technologies, then this group is the right for you. We like to meet you and discuss what is going on in the various companies around our domain.

Dies ist eine Gruppe für alle, die Data Science leben und lieben. Für alle, die Muster erkennen, wenn sie auf einen Bildschirm mit Zahlen starren, Spass daran haben, die neuesten Technologien auszuprobieren und nicht verzweifeln, wenn sie mal wieder den einen fießen Bug in ihrem Code suchen. Für dich, die du gerne Einblicke in die Welt der Daten und ihre Bedeutung gibst, egal ob tagtäglich in deinem Unternehmen oder demnächst in unserem Meet-up.

10 years of automated category classification at solute GmbH

Welcome to the Karlsruhe Data Science Meetup. Being in the price comparison business, solute's mission is to make sense of product data. Crucial to fulfilling that mission is figuring out the category of each offer. We tackle this problem with Machine Learning algorithms for over 10(!) years now. We want to invite you to a journey through our history of building, maintaining, and modernizing our category classification system. Starting from back in the days where people used blackberry phones and scikit-learn wasn't even invented yet. You will learn about the rise of our SVM classifier, well motivated decisions leading to a successful system that just needed some tweaking over the years — until this approach didn't suffice any more. We will share our most interesting mistakes, misconceptions and design flaws and how we plan to move forward with our rework of the solute Machine Learning infrastructure and the introduction of a Neural Network based category classifier. No previous knowledge of Machine Learning algorithms is required. You'll meet other enthusiastic data scientists, who walk similar paths in their companies, having alike experiences and challenges their are willing to share, ready for interesting discussion. Last but not least: There will be beverages and food! See you soon! Are you and your company interested to present how you apply data science in your projects? We're always interested to learn about exciting projects and like to give you the opportunity to share your experiences with our group. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the organizers of this meetup.
