Decreasing default rates thanks to the identification of gamblers

Working as Data Scientists, we have to solve various problems on a daily basis. Some of them are tasks we've completed many times before and some of them are completely new to us and we have to understand the business logic behind them before starting building models. The latter was the case when our client, a bank, approached us a couple of months ago with a problem they were tackling – whether to provide or deny loans to gamblers.

Data Is The Way To Go

Data Is The Way To Go

Everyone keeps talking about data; its great value, utility, and the many benefits it offers. However, to many people all those might just seem like abstract concepts. That's why we want to show you what data means in real life: data to help, data to increase efficiency, and sometimes data just to amuse. We point out use cases where data science helped someone to solve a unique problem or to solve a very old problem in a unique way. We will demonstrate that data can help individuals, communities, as well as corporations and governments. It's not a universal solution to everything, but it is right up there :)
