WiDS Bengaluru Datathon Workshop

Women in Data Science (WiDS) Bengaluru is organizing the datathon workshop on “How to win Kaggle data science competitions” at Indian Institute of Management Bengaluru (IIMB) as a part of the WiDS global Datathon initiative. This workshop will provide directions on the how to write codes and use correct methodology/approaches to crack datathons. The hands-on sessions, as well as demos, will help participants become a pro in creating deep neural nets and boost audience confidence to participate and win in Kaggle competitions which is highly regarded skill in the data science community. Top regional scorers of the WiDS Datathon will be announced and recognized at the WiDS Bengaluru Conference.
