August Kaggle Dataset Publishing Awards Winners’ Interview

August Kaggle Dataset Publishing Awards Winners' Interview

In August, over 350 new datasets were published on Kaggle, in part sparked by our $10,000 Datasets Publishing Award. This interview delves into the stories and background of August’s three winners–Ugo CupcicSudalai Rajkumar, and Colin Morris. They answer questions about what stirred them to create their winning datasets and kernel ideas they’d love to see other Kagglers explore.

TV interview

I had the chance to be interviewed about my work at Shadow Robot by a French TV channel. This was made possible by working at a coworking space, yet another advantage of being a remotie!

First Place, Grasping Dataset by Ugo Cupcic

Our team selected this dataset because it combines two exciting fields of research: robotics and deep learning. To learn more about the dataset, we loved Ugo’s excellent blog post “How I taught my robot to realize how bad it was at holding things” complementing the usage of Kaggle to make such a unique research-based dataset open and accessible to all.

Getting started with robotics is probably a lot easier than you think. Here’s a simulation sandbox that’s cross-platform and provides a simple high-level API. It should help you get started experimenting with robot grasping tasks.

As the Chief Technical Architect at the Shadow Robot Company, I spend a lot of time playing with different algorithms to see how they’d fit our robots. Controlling a complex robot to make it behave the way you’d want in a complex environment is… complex!
