Learn Data Science by Doing Kaggle Competitions: Cell Nucleus Detection

May 17, 2018 · Vancouver, Canada

We meet every two weeks to learn more about data science by discussing Kaggle competitions (https://www.kaggle.com). If you want to get better at data wrangling, feature engineering, model selection or just want to have fun solving non-trivial data science problems, this is the right group to join!

This time we will look at the 2018 Data Science Bowl competition: "Find the nuclei in divergent images to advance medical discovery" (https://www.kaggle.com/c/data-science-bowl-2018)

We will be led through the competition by Stan and Mahmoud (thanks!), who competed together and came in the top 2%. (!)

To get the most out of the meetup, please try to look at the competition beforehand. It's OK if you don't understand it all. The meetup is for questions and discussion.

At the end of the meeting we will discuss which competitions we want to look at for future meetups. Bring your suggestions!

6:00 Doors are open, feel free to mingle
6:30 Presentation and discussion begins
~7:45 Pick the next competition, then off to a nearby restaurant for food, drinks, and breakout discussions

The meetup will be live streamed here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJhW_16uxALr0X4olEW2p5A/live

Thanks to VentureLabs (http://www.venturelabs.ca/) for the meeting space!

    Welcome to the Data Science LEARNING Group! A meetup for people who want to LEARN Data Science as a group. Taking online courses together. Reading books together. Etc. Also with some hands-on workshops taught by 'experts'. It's also a place where you can ask others questions and for help. This is a sister meetup of: http://www.meetup.com/DataScience/ (That's where talks are held.) But we're at: http://www.meetup.com/LearnDataScience/ Also, join us on the VanTech slack!
