Description

Attention! Attention! Attendence needed!

Event for students of all levels and staff members of QMUL

Hi, we would like to invite you to the second meeting of “Diversity in Data” society where Dr Carmen Su and Rainey David will show you how to do prediction magic using machine learning on Kaggle dataset. Kaggle is a platform for predictive modelling as well as analytics competitions in which people compete to produce the best models for describing and predicting data sets provided by companies and other users.

First speaker: Dr Carmen Su is a mathematical modelling PhD. In "Machine Learning in Kaggle Land" event, she will show us how to build a predictive model with the dataset from the competition website.This dataset describes the sales of individual residential property in Ames, Iowa from 2006 to 2010, with 79 explanatory variables describing every aspect of residential homes. The goal is to predict the sales price for each house with regression techniques. Dr Carmen Su will explain her workflow and approaches to the problem with Python packages pandas and scikit-learn.

Second speaker: Rainey David will show you approach data using classification and clustering and her experience should be a proof that she knows what she is talking about. She obtained her first degree in Mathematics from QMUL, studied her postgraduate in Advanced Computing at Kings College London, and is currently studying Big Data Science back in alma matter. She is a prize winner at Deloitte Digital, IBM, Techcrunch Start-up Weekend and many other hackathons. Rainey David is an experienced Software Developer, PM, Management Consultant. She worked as EMEA Project Manager at General Motors and a Software Developer at ADP, Toyota. She is certified in IT Service Management (ITIL), Software Testing (ISEB), Project Management (PRINCE2).
