"The learning rate is tremendous. Data Science Retreat has pushed me to my limit and beyond"
– TOAv: Data scientist at Newyorker (batch 08)
Data Science Retreat brings together top data scientists and participants seeking exceptional growth.
Our students are an international bunch of highly educated and talented data scientists in-the-making. They all come with a unique idea and are ready to seize the opportunity of turning it into a reality.
Using Github activity as a signal that technical workers are looking for a new job
This project goes to show the enormous potential of Machine learning and data-crunching. An abstraction over a deceivingly simple concept: workers who are looking for a job get active on GitHub. And on Linkedin. And on Hacker News. Can a machine know when you are going to switch jobs? Or when you are thinking about it? That would be the right time to approach someone with a job offer.
AI-powered highlights - Deep-learning the interestingness in Starcraft 2 videos
The videogame industry is bigger than Hollywood, yet watching game replays is tedious since you have to go through lots of boring stuff to get to the interesting bits. This portfolio project makes machines understand and predict peaks of interest of an audience, also called highlights. In this case, Starcraft is the subject because of the thriving video community it holds.
PREDICTING SEIZURES IN EPILEPTIC PATIENTS
Epileptic patients never know when their next seizure is going to come. They fear leaving home unaccompanied. They cannot drive. They cannot cook. Would their life quality increase if a machine could warn them when one is about to hit them? This project reveals a model designed to predict epileptic seizures in patients with astonishingly high accuracy.
"Exposure to data scientists who are at the highest level in their field. That has gone beyond expectation."
– STEPHAN (BATCH 02), whose portfolio project turned into a company
DSR is the only program worldwide whose mentors are at the Chief Data Scientist and CTO level. They are invested in your progress, and will train you to have the right mindset, to solve business questions with technology, and how to advise leaders. Some mentors teach, others provide advice during portfolio project time.
