A quick experience feedback about the Cdiscount image classification Kaggle competition

Introduction: Three months ago, we launched a data science competition on the famous Kaggle platform. The aim was to develop a product classifier based on image analysis. Indeed, our catalog...

Visual search

It might sometimes be complicated for a customer to translate his tastes or purchase intents into words to be typed into a search engine. That’s particularly true for non technical...

Part-of-Speech tagging tutorial with the Keras Deep Learning library

In this tutorial, you will see how you can use a simple Keras model to train and evaluate an artificial neural network for multi-class classification problems. Part-of-Speech tagging is a...

Python profiling

Sometimes, computational performances become a crucial point in production algorithms. That’s especially true in data science where proof of concept pieces of code can have a poor scalability in terms...

Our participation to the Kaggle challenge: Quora Question Pairs

So, we decided to spend a little of our time on a Kaggle challenge, namely, Quora Question Pairs. (By “we”, I mean the data scientists of Cdiscount.) The purpose of...
