As a Data Scientist working in the industry for many years I love reading and talking about ML packages, ETL tooling, new revolutionary methods in NLP and CV. But my personal favorite topic is data-driven projects. Getting something real and working out of this “AI magic” is always my main focus, even if it’s not an ideal implementation.

This activity is an idea of a good friend of mine — Alex Korzhikov. Together we will be sharing a lot of interesting things about Programming and Data Science. So please stay tuned!
