Do you love dogs? Do you love data? Do you love R? Then this is the perfect event for you.

R ladies London is running a full day hackathon together with Dogs Trust. We will explore data provided by the charity, as well as public data, to help Dogs Trust learn from their data.

Questions that we will try to answer include:

Can we apply machine learning, to successfully classify visual images of 30 different dog breeds?
Are particular breeds more likely to be rehomed in particular areas?
Historically, are breed popularity trends seen across the whole of the UK, or do specific areas show unique trends?
Are rehoming rates influenced by breed appearances on film or TV?

Join us for a day of data analysis and fun.

Please note that you will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement to access any data from Dogs Trust.
