Our webinar series: The DataHour is definitely going to be a fun way to understand the concepts of Data Science from the Leading Players in the Data Science domain. We are hopeful that these webinar sessions are going to be a great source of enrichment and value-adding for our community members.

Upcoming Webinars: The DataHour

We are enthralled to share that we have two upcoming webinars in the month of February 2022.

About the Webinars

  • In the 1st webinar, we will discuss advanced feature engineering techniques, best practices for ensuring these techniques work in a production environment, and finally, share a repository of more advanced feature engineering techniques.
  • In the 2nd second webinar, there is going to be a hands-on workshop in which we’ll walk through the feature engineering process for a modeling problem. We’ll apply advanced feature engineering techniques to a set of transactions to show how they can build a complex picture of behavior over time.
  • In the 3rd webinar, we will share some important lessons while working and managing data science projects. We will describe how to combine research & execution, how to scale experimentation, reduce the need of labeled data, share features, handle privacy, etc.
