Data Science Dojo Sponsors Kaggle Days Tokyo

[October 18, 2019]

Data Science Dojo is sponsoring Kaggle Days Tokyo. Taking place December 11-12, 2019, in Tokyo, Japan. Kaggle Days Tokyo will give Data Science Dojo a platform to continue giving back to the data science community.

Kaggle Days is a conference created by Kaggle and LogicAI for Kaggelers to meet offline. It's the "first global series of offline events for seasoned data scientists and Kagglers" as written on the Kaggle Days website. You meet Grandmasters, win prizes, and compete in offline events. You can also learn from seasoned professionals who are there to help grow the community.

Raja Iqbal, Chief Data Scientist and CEO at Data Science Dojo, is one of the seasoned professionals looking to help the community grow.

"We have 7 Meetup groups spread across the globe, but we've never been as far east as Tokyo. The closest we get is Singapore." Raja said while counting on his fingers, "I just can't wait to meet more people from a different part of the world who are excited to learn data science."

What to expect at Kaggle Days Tokyo

Tokyo will be no different than other Kaggle Days. You can expect to network, learn, compete, and earn prizes. Kaggle Grandmasters, Masters, and data science experts will be in attendence to give presentations, talk shop, and network with the community.

Raja and Data Science Dojo will be there to give a 90 minute workshop as well as network, hire, and learn from top kaggelers. The exact topic of the workshop remains undecided, but it has been narrowed down to two possibilities:

  • The art of building machine learning models for large scale machine learning
  • Feature engineering for real-world machine learning problems
