For this blog post we decided to jump on the PokémonGO hype and add a bit of science into the craze. Our goal is to give you the optimal portfolio of Pokémon to train, so you can be as effective as possible against a wide variety of opponents. As each Pokémon has its strengths and weaknesses, we created clusters of Pokémon with similar characteristics and looked at the few selected ones allowing the player to compete against as many different enemies as possible.
May was an eventful month. In the first two weeks, we were very excited to launch our data science bootcamp Basecamp! Now that the application process is open, all prospects can finally apply and set off on an adventurous journey to becoming qualified data scientists with us. What an exciting time! But that was just the beginning. In the second half of the month, we have visited three different European capitals to attend three conferences: Big Data Universe in Budapest, Big Data & Data Science Conference in Paris, and last but not least Pioneers Festival in Vienna.
Next week, Lukas is going to give last two from his lectures series on data science. First, on Tuesday, he will visit Matej Bel University in Banska Bystrica, Slovakia, from where he will move to Prague, on Thursday, this time to present data science to students of Institute of Economic Studies (Charles University).
