An introductory hands-on workshop, aimed at the Amateur Data Scientists among us, to the Heritage Health Prize competition. First, we will quickly look at the classes of algorithms & what they do through competition problems & datasets. Next we will dig deeper into one completion the Kaggle RTA Challenge(Ensemble/Random Forest). We will then dive into the Heritage Health Prize, work through the dataset & submit an entry!
Note: While there is not enough time for the participants to work through the different datasets, we will provide links to a hands-on tutorial which you’all can do after the workshop.
