I'd like to thank all those who attended our meetup this month, and watching our videos, we appreciate your support as it took a lot of work to set it up, if you are curious, you can read Vicky's post about it:

An Introduction to Fraud Detection using Machine Learning by Nabanita Roy

(15 mins) Fraud detection is an interesting use-case of machine learning where the machine is trained to detect patterns in fraudulent transactions and sieve them out. In this talk, I would discuss the different ways this has been achieved in the finance industry and combat fraud.

About Nabanita Roy

I am a Data Scientist at Fiserv. I completed my Masters in Computer Science - Intelligent Systems from Trinity College Dublin in 2018. Prior to that, I worked as a Systems Engineer at Infosys Limited. https://www.linkedin.com/in/nabanita-roy/

My On Air Sign with CircuitPython and Pi Zero by Vicky Twomey-Lee

(10 mins) With all the streaming, interviews with people for podcasts, why not make an On Air sign. Made with Pimoroni's Ubercorn, Pi Zero and CircuitPython, Vicky with give a show and tell of her Maker project.

From Jupyter to production-code, an easy conversion path by Lais Carvalho

(10 mins) Jupyter notebooks are great for EDA (Exploratory Data Analysis). The issue starts when one needs to convert those functions to production-code. Scripts quickly get messy and reproducibly stops being an easy achievable thing. In this LT I will show you how to start your EDA with Kedro and how easy it is to convert it all to nodes with an easy-frictionless conversion.
