My first Kaggle competition

Last month I took part in my first Kaggle competition using BNP Paribas Cardif’s data. The aim was to accelerate claims management process but my personal goal was to apply machine learning techniques.
That officially makes me a Kaggler 😛
I used xgboost R package to implement gradient boosting. The results are out so I know there’s a long way for me to improve my ML skills. I guess that I will need to work more on feature engineering and ensembling my models in future.
