The top hacker news on Techcrunch states that Google is acquiring Kaggle, the world’s largest community of data scientists and developers. It is a platform that hosts machine learning contests, top datasets and other competitions to write and share code. The 7-year-old start-up is the top open data platform that helps the users to learn, work and play; bearing the seamless data.

Kaggle is a widespread community of about half a million data scientists. They compete with each other to solve complex data science problems with the use of varied applications for data learning.

Google by acquiring Kaggle will have the benefit of the active Kagglers who are known to have solved mainstream problems of many industries.The company will have increased mindshare worth their investment. However, Google already has plenty of potential mindshare from its own project Tensorflow.

Kaggle’s platform host following features: Learning to do data science, machine learning competitions, exploration, and analysis of featured datasets, writing and sharing code, community feedback on your code.
