  • New: Maintained Datasets November 6, 2018 4:00 pm
    Can you trust the data you use on Kaggle? Is it licensed? Has it been updated recently? Those sensible questions are the reason for the new “Maintained by Kaggle” badge you may have noticed while browsing select datasets. This badge signifies that a dataset is maintained by Kaggle, though it may or may not be data that Kaggle has collected (e.g. Kaggle - Meta Kaggle vs. SF Open Data - Police Calls). Kaggle connects to datasets of other organizations using ...

  • Help! I can’t reproduce a machine learning project! September 19, 2018 3:00 pm
    Have you ever sat down with the code and data for an existing machine learning project, trained the same model, checked your results… and found that they were different from the original results? Not being able to reproduce someone else’s results is super frustrating. Not being able to reproduce your own results is frustrating and embarrassing. And tracking down the exact reason that you aren’t able to reproduce results can take ages; it took me a solid week to reproduce ...

  • Winner Interview | Particle Tracking Challenge first runner-up, Pei-Lien Chou September 14, 2018 3:00 pm
    What does it take to get almost to the top? Meet Pei-Lien Chou, the worthy runner-up in our recent MLTrack Particle Tracking Challenge. We invited him to tell us about how he placed so well in this challenge. In this contest, Kagglers were challenged to build an algorithm that would quickly reconstruct particle tracks from 3D points left in the silicon detectors. This was part one of a two-phase challenge. In the accuracy phase, which ran from May to August ...

  • Ed Ramsden on his winning solution in SIAM SDM’11 Contest February 25, 2011 3:31 pm
    By Ed Ramsden (EdR), the winner of SIAM SDM’11 Data Mining Contest. The basis for my model was the Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN), which was originally introduced by Donald Specht in 1990. The PNN is an example-based classifier in which the ‘X’ vector for an unknown case to be classified is compared to all known-class […]

  • Winner’s notes. Yuchun Tang on noise deduction to improve classification accuracy in SIAM SDM’11 Contest February 22, 2011 10:19 am
    By Yuchun Tang (piaopiao), the runner-up in SIAM SDM’11 Contest. QSAR data provided for SIAM SDM’11 Contest were known to be highly noisy. Around 30% of labels provided could be wrong due to experimental uncertainty, as reported by the organizers after the contest was closed. Furthermore, this contest only counted the last submission, which means […]
