Machine learning competitions – Numerai example code.

In this post, I want to share, how simple it is to start competing in machine learning tournaments like Numerai. I will go step by step, line by line explaining what is doing what and why it is required. Numerai is a global artificial intelligence competition in predicting financial markets. Numerai is a little bit similar to Kaggle but with clean datasets, so we can pass over long data cleansing process.  You just download the data, build a model, and upload your predictions, that’s it. To extract most of the data you would initially do some feature engineering, but for […]

Data Science definition.

There is much debate on it, but the short definition of data science is: “Data science is an interdisciplinary field of using scientific methods to get information from data in various forms.” Data science involves using methods from fields of statistics, computer science and mathematics, to interpret data for business decisions. Amounts of data available in modern society grow with the input of technology in peoples lives. These massive sets of structured and unstructured data help to show patterns and trends for business opportunities or academic research. One can see an increasing number of traditional fields of science with adjective […]
