Titanic Disaster Machine Learning Workshop Recap – Apr 20, 2022

This week we hosted a free Kaggle Titanic Disaster Machine Learning workshop. In this blog post we’ll recap some highlights from the workshop. Ok, let’s dig in.


First, thanks for voting for your favorite charity!

With the unprecedented circumstances facing our global community, Arrikto is looking for even more ways to contribute. With this in mind, we thought that in lieu of swag we could give workshop attendees the opportunity to vote for their favorite charity and help guide our monthly donation to charitable causes. The charity that won this workshop’s voting was UNICEF. Also known as the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF is a United Nations agency responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide. The agency is among the most widespread and recognizable social welfare organizations in the world, with a presence in 192 countries and territories. We are pleased to be making a donation of $100 to them on behalf of the workshop attendees. Again, thanks to all of you who attended and voted!
