Join us on Thursday, February 10th to discuss learnings from the Dataiku x ALMA Observatory Challenge, a hands-on project hosted over several months which enabled 14 participants from around the world to develop their skills in Dataiku & data science while contributing to a good cause.
Volunteers were tasked with leveraging data science to automatize quality tests performed on astronomical observations, so that it can be made in the minimum time possible and more resources can be allocated to producing useful observations.
This online event will take you through a retrospective on the Challenge, from its inception to the insights produced by participants. We will then open up the discussion around the value and challenges of volunteer data science initiatives.
