Mitsubishi Electric Data Scientist Team Wins Gold in Kaggle Competition

Two members awarded Kaggle Competition Master titles for cumulative achievements


In addition, Messrs. Shintani and Okumura were each awarded the title of Kaggle Competition Master for cumulatively winning one gold medal and two silver medals each in Kaggle competitions. The Master title, which is presented to people who have received a certain number of awards in the competition category, has been presented to 2,108 people worldwide, including 278 in Japan (as of June 18).

Kaggle medals recognize winners for using machine learning in a competitive format to develop effective solutions to challenges posed by companies and government agencies.

The recent competition, which ran from February 5 to May 27, posed the challenge of predicting the likelihood of loan applicants defaulting on their debts, based on which participants used analytical techniques to propose solutions. The solution devised by Messrs. Shintani, Okumura and Fukuhara, which ranked 13th out of 3,856 solutions, won a gold medal for its robust features, model construction and adaptation to evaluation metrics based on exploratory data analysis, a method of data science that uses basic aggregation and visualization to explore data characteristics and understand data structure.
