Recap of my first Kaggle Competition: Detecting Insults in Social Commentary [update 3]
Recently I entered my first kaggle competition - for those who don't know it, it is a site running machine learning competitions. A data set and time frame is provided and the best submission gets a money prize, often something between 5000$ and 50000$. I found the approach quite interesting and could definitely use a new laptop, so I entered Detecting Insults in Social Commentary. My weapon of choice was Python with scikit-learn - for those who haven't read my blog before: I am one of the core devs of the project and never shut up about it.
