Kaggle is a community of almost a million data scientists, who have built more than two million machine-learning models while participating in Kaggle competitions. Data scientists come to Kaggle to learn, collaborate, and develop the state of the art in machine learning. Anthony Goldbloom shares lessons learned from top performers in the Kaggle community and explores the types of machine-learning techniques typically used, some of the tricks he’s seen, and pitfalls to avoid. Along the way, Anthony discusses work habits and skills that help data scientists succeed.
