Web resources and competitions

In this section, we'll review where to find additional resources for learning, discussing, presenting, or sharpening our data science skills.


One of the most well-known repositories of machine learning datasets is hosted by the University of California, Irvine. The UCI repository contains over 300 datasets covering a wide variety of challenges, including poker, movies, wine quality, activity recognition, stocks, taxi service trajectories, advertisements, and many others. Each dataset is usually equipped with a research paper where the dataset was used, which can give you a hint on how to start and what is the prediction baseline.
