#20 Kaggle and the Future of Data Science
Apr 30, 2018
Anthony Goldbloom, CEO of Kaggle, speaks with Hugo about Kaggle, data science communities, reproducible data science, machine learning competitions and the future of data science in the cloud. If you thought that Kaggle was merely a platform for machine learning competitions, you have to check out this chat, because these ML comps account for less than a third of activity on Kaggle today. In the discussion: Kaggle kernels for reproducible data science and the evolution of the Kaggle public data platform; the genesis of Kaggle and how Anthony managed to solve the cold start problem of building a two-sided market place; the exciting implications of Kaggle's recent acquisition by Google for the future of cloud-based data science; why Python is dominant on Kaggle.
