Hey guys, in this meeting we will start our data analysis on datasets pertaining to (previous or ongoing) competitions. After Datafest, I thought this would be a good opportunity to have the club practice and see real world datasets. Data Competition are a great for beginners to benchmark themselves and learn from others, but it is also a great source of reputation if you are able to win. Data Competitions help rack up achievements that you can put on your portfolio. If that’s not enough to incentivize you, data competitions can award their participants with free swag and prizes ranging anywhere from $500 - $1,000,000. The chances of winning is sometimes easier than you think, but overall this is a good experience for expanding your career and knowledge base.
Modeling employee attrition and describing reasons why an employee might quit.
Hello everyone, in this meeting we will start our data analysis on the movie industry. The global cinematic industry earns several billions of dollars each and every year. A large percentage of the population still watches movies every month. Forecasters show that the revenue money and expected numbers of viewership will only go up by 2020. This is a good opportunity for the ugriders to create machine learning predictions and perform a sales/marketing analysis. Although, the number of people watching movies at home have become streamlined by technology such as Netflix. You can never replace the experience of watching movies on the big screen with your friends at the theaters. We will also be going over the following:
- Wrap up the HR analytics dataset: If you want to showcase your work please email us back.
- Prepare for Datafest: We want everyone to form teams, socialize, and answer questions about Datafest.
- Schedule tentative plans: Polling for mock datafest date, do we want Sunday classes for beginners, and the recruitment of officers.
