Reposted by Jesper Dramsch
Hosted a podcast
On the season finale of the Software World, I welcome Jesper Dramsch, Scientist for Machine Learning in the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMRWF) and Geophysicist.

In our conversation, Jesper talks about the differences between Machine Learning and Data Science, how to enter the field, how life scientists shift their focus to Data Science.

We talk about how businesses should approach data as the processes and methodologies are completely different from software engineering.

Listen to the episode here 👇.

#26: Machine Learning and Data Science with Jesper Dramsch

 Many people think Kaggle is just a competition platform.

This could not be further from the truth. The platform has grown to include amazing learning resources no Machine Learning practitioner should miss out on.

Don't be fooled.

↓ 🧵

🧠 Courses and Certificates on Kaggle Learn

Kaggle has an entire notebook-based course platform, including certificates!

Whether it's #SQL, Feature Engineering, or #MachineLearning Explainability, you can use the integrated compute platform to learn for free.

💾 Find Datasets with Examples

Early steps in data science include obtaining datasets.

Kaggle has gamified uploading data sets to the platform. They have licenses and descriptions of how a dataset was obtained.

Usually, a great starting point to get a free and easy data set.

🏆 Explore Old Competitions to Learn from

I love searching old competitions for new tricks!

Finished competitions very often have a showcase and explanation from the winners detailing how they approached the problem and how they placed in the top ranks!

💻 Find Fantastic Code When it's Hidden from You

The standard sort of Kaggle Code is "Hotness", which makes sense in active competitions.

When you search older code examples, click top right and switch to Most Votes to find the hidden gems from Experts to Grandmasters!

🙊 Don't miss out on Discussions

Especially Grandmasters pushing for that quadruple title
will often info-dump in the discussion section to farm upvotes.

You can essentially get an entire paper review in a single discussion comment.

❌ Don't Miss out on an Invaluable Resource

I have yet to even get close to winning any competition.

Yet, Kaggle has benefited me in more than one way in my professional life.

Answered @cassidoo's newsletter question.

Given an array of integers, return the index of each local peak in the array. A “peak” element is an element that is greater than its neighbors.


$ localPeaks([1,2,3,1])
$ [2]

$ localPeaks([1,3,2,3,5,6,4])
$ [1, 5]

You see companies try data science, build a small team and fail.

Apart from the lack of data and often the lack of accessibility to data, expectations can be disappointed

In this essay for #ship30for30, I share there are a few reasons how data science "fails".

Here are 5 lessons I learned from creating daily.

I wrote an essay a day for 30 days and it taught me more and different things than I would have ever expected.

It's the last day of #ship30for30. Is it time for nostalgia yet?
