WiDS Datathon 2023
This year I participated in my first ever datathon, hosted by the Women in Data Science (WiDS) organization. The challenge for this year’s competition was to accurately predict daily temperatures over hundreds of regions in the United States over two months. The challenge was hosted on Kaggle. In this post, I will summarize my approach and the things I learned from participating in the datathon. I would like to sincerely thank the competition organizers, as well as all the other participants who kindly shared their Kaggle notebooks - I have cited the notebooks I read in the References section below.
