As a remote worker for the last 5 years, I’m convinced that remote working is the way to go. Here’s why!
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 Cupcic, Sudalai 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.

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.

As the Chief Technical Architect of the Shadow Robot Company, I spend a lot of time thinking about grasping things with our robots. This story is a quick delve into the world of grasp robustness prediction using machine learning.
Are you thinking of making the leap as a remote worker? But you wonder what it’d be like to work remotely?
Or you’re curious about how your fellow remote workers live?
A few of our members share a peek into their daily lives and how they handle working remotely.
As I covered in different previous posts, being a Remoty has plenty of advantages when it comes to work-life balance. However, another advantage I discovered recently was the “slashing” possibilities…
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!

8 of our awesome members have put together how they found their first remote job/gig.
We hope you will enjoy reading these tips. 🙂
After 5 years of being a remoty in different positions for the Shadow Robot Company — from Head of Software to Chief Technical Architect — I’ve spent some time and effort perfecting my routine to achieve great productivity and focus while at work, and maintain an amazing work-life balance at the same time. But sometimes that beautifully crafted routine goes south…
2016 is drawing to an end. With 2017 right in front of us, it’s the perfect time to take a few minutes to reassess, go back over last year and start 2017 thrumming with energy!
