Enter a Data Science Competition. You Don't Need to Be an Expert! (ADDED FEE) — Professional Development Computer Technology Workshop
ASA , Salford Systems
How would you like to enter a data science competition like Kaggle or the KDD Cup? In this presentation designed for statisticians, we will show how you can quickly and easily create a model to achieve a top-performing result. We will demonstrate with step-by-step instructions and using multiple data sets from past competitions. At the end of this workshop, our goal is that you will be able to build TreeNet gradient boosting models that bring you within decimal places of winning solutions. Use this information as a starting point for future Kaggle competitions and KDD Cups. All attendees will receive six months access to fully functional versions of the the SPM Salford Predictive Modeler software suite.
Instructor(s): Kaitlin Onthank, Ling Chen
