Data Science: My Journey from Doctor to Noob Kaggler.

In the last couple of months, I’ve been pursuing another hobby  – data science and artificial intelligence (AI). You might have followed the much-publicised match between Lee Sedol, one of the world’s best Go players, and AlphaGo, an AI system developed by Google that spurred discussions about the future of AI. (Spoiler : AlphaGo won 4 – 1) This has been partly triggered by my work at Holmusk, where our brilliant data science team has been winning multiple competitions and most recently took part in the Second Annual Data Science Bowl on Kaggle.

The belief is that data science is going to do more to improve healthcare than systems biology in the next decade. And I’m a believer. Here’s a fun video I found that introduces neural networks – especially if you’re old enough to remember Mario!
