In this webinar we will talk about Data Science competitions, and will be joining one ourselves in order to solve a real-world problem using data and Machine Learning.

We are going to explore the problem and the data, design and test a couple of simple models and then we will discuss how we can use more data to improve our algorithm’s performance.

With this workshop, you will learn:
⚡️ What is and how to join a Data Science competition
⚡️ How to design and train a Machine Learning model
⚡️ How to submit your solution
⚡️ How to improve your score by using more data

By the end of the workshop, you will be ready to try new things to improve your model and hopefully get to the top of the competition leaderboard!
