What we're about

Data Science Portugal (DSPT) is an informal community of data science enthusiasts created with the purpose of sharing knowledge and experience in the fields of data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data and all related fields. Since September 2016, the Data Science Portugal community is building synergies among data passionate people and bridging many cross domain fields and addressing several data science problems.

By the end of 2019 we counted a total of 70 meetups organized in 5 cities (Porto, Aveiro, Braga, Coimbra and Lisbon) and almost 2200 members registered in the community.

In this year we also organized our second big conference: DSPT Day 2019 (https://dsptday.com/dsptday2018/)

In 2020 we’re setting even more challenging objectives, so stay tuned for what’s to come!

Abstract: Developing a data-driven strategy capable of monetizing advertising technology at scale can create a financially prospering mobile game.
That strategy, however, cannot propose showing ads too aggressively since it would negatively impact the users’ game experience.
This talk will examine how advertising monetization, driven by a data science approach, works and explore how it can lead to increased game revenue without impacting user retention.
