With feedback from Senior Data Associates (SDAs) on our previous initiatives, Talent and Growth (TNG) Department continued to bring more and improved opportunities to the SDAs in the month of Sep 2020. In the process, TNG and its initiatives just got bigger and better!

Highlights from Sep 2020

BIA League (Second Competition)

  • BIA League was a Kaggle Competition Series between Aug and Sep 2020.
  • The second competition was held from 29 Aug — 12 Sep 2020.
  • The participants had to classify sign-language images using semi-supervised classification.
  • The proud winners include: Tan Jia Yi Bernice (1st), Haodi Qi (2nd), and Hartanto Ario Widjaya (3rd).

External Projects

  • Throughout the year, TNG Team aims to roll-out project opportunities for our SDAs to work with external stakeholders and get necessary real-world experience on application of data science/ analytics concepts.
  • Our SDAs successfully completed a project with TrueVA, a management consulting firm, which was helping one of their clients with their finance, operation and customer data. The SDAs were involved in data processing, analysing, and modelling, as well as dashboarding visualisation.
