HR Analytics and the Kaggle competition March Madness

#artificialintelligence

The objective of the Kaggle competition was to predict the 2016 NCAA Basketball Tournament, called March Madness. Predicting performance through machine learning algorithms is a crucial aspect for HR Analytics. I learnt about a Bayesian skill rating system called TrueSkill used in large-scale commercial online gaming platforms, for example Xbox Live developed by Microsoft. Kaggle is a community of data scientists who come to compete in machine learning competitions.
