Collaborative Data Science with Kaggle Kernels and Datasets

RLadies Los Angeles and LA Women Who Code are excited to present

Collaborative Data Science with Kaggle Kernels and Datasets

by Megan Risdal

Code and data sharing in collaboration with others is integral to open data science. On Kaggle, the world’s largest online data science community, users use Kernels as a platform to share and execute reproducible code and Datasets to access, analyze, and maintain public data projects. Since the introduction of Kernels in 2015, users have written tens of thousand of kernels in R, Python, and Julia. And in the past year, users and organizations have published over 2,000 public datasets. Over this time, Kernels and Datasets have transformed how the data science community tackles machine learning problems, collaborates, and learns. In this talk, Megan Risdal uses community metrics and insights to share what Kernels and Datasets have taught Kaggle about collaborative data science. 

Megan is a Community Advocate and Data Scientist at Kaggle. She holds master’s degrees in linguistics from UCLA and North Carolina State University.
