We are Data Scientists and Kagglers.
We enjoy participating in data science competitions. In every competition, we learn something new – new algorithms (Factorization Machine, Follow-the-Regularized-Leader), new tools (Vowpal Wabbit, XGBoost, LightGBM, Keras), and new domain knowledge. It helps us keep our skills up-to-date in the fast evolving fields of Machine Learning and Data Science.
