What do Australian Rainfall Predictions, NFL Win Probabilities, and Airline Satisfaction Models have in common?
These were all research topics chosen by this year’s Data Science Boot Camp participants, sponsored by NLP Logix. This five-week program allowed students from local high schools to work together under the guidance of some of our experienced data scientists to learn the basics of analytics and machine learning. The teams were then able to put what they learned to use by tackling real-world issues with predictive modeling.
At the end of the program, the students presented their models to a panel of business, educational, and community leaders. This year’s panel included Professors and Staff from UNF’s School of Computing, members of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Analytics Team, and our partners at Credit Soft.
We love having the opportunity to nurture the next generation of data scientists, especially now that we are seeing former Boot Camp students coming back to work with us as interns and maybe one day as full-time employees.
Congratulations to this years’ teams, you did a great job!
