Meetup Overview

DSPT#54 – Data Science, The Way of A Master (Porto)

published by root - 1 June, 2019

Last Tuesday @ UPTEC, in our Porto Meetup, we had the pleasure to meet and learn from a portuguese Kaggle master, Pedro Lima, who is PhD from University of Coimbra, partner at Cognitiva where he works on machine learning.

We were presented with an introduction to the platform, how to get started in competitions and some highlights on things that help maximize the fun and success on Kaggle.

Latter on, during the workshop, the attendees worked on the famous House Prices Dataset to get the first insights on how to start and define some baselines for the competition.

Data Science Portugal would like to thank to everyone that attended our meetup and also our sponsors, Novo Banco and Bosch for their support.


And of course, no DSPT meetup would be complete without our group photo.
