Podcast Interview Data Science Show with Daliana Liu

Project Details





Jesper Dramsch is a scientist for machine learning at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather forecasts. They have a phd in applied Machine Learning to Geoscience from Technical University of Denmark. They are a Kaggle Kernels Expert and TPU star, ranking at top 81/100k worldwide. We talked about weather forecasting, things they learned from Kaggle, how to deal with missing data and ourliers, deep learning, Keras vs Pytorch, XGBoost, their struggles as a phd student, working in the EU vs US. Follow @DalianaLiu for more updates on data science and this show.
