Read my interview by Kaggle on building out the Data Science team at Airbnb.
We had a phenomenal response to the Airbnb Data Science competition on Kaggle. Over 1,400 individuals submitted over 20,000 entries! Congratulations to everyone that participated and hoped you enjoyed getting hands on with our data.
In an exciting new partnership, Airbnb has teamed up with Kaggle to create an online Data Science data challenge. In this challenge we provide historical data on the first country guests book and then ask candidates to predict future first bookings.
Try the challenge yourself! You have until February 11th 2016 to submit your entries. And if you have any questions you can use the forum and I will respond as soon as possible. Good luck and hope you have fun playing with our data!
