The Kaggle competition finally ended and we updated ProtoML with all the cool tools that we made. This was definitely one of those examples of not knowing what we didn't know, having previously only done theoretical machine learning.
It's pretty amazing looking back how much we've learned since we started the project, and some of the stuff I've learned from this, I know use everyday (like how to use the amazing data analysis library, Pandas).
Moving forward, we have a lot of work to do. We have great ideas of things to implement. While I can't speak for Bharath, I know that I'll be redoing a lot of the old stuff I made by merging the Feature class into the proto_col, a command line tool for doing human-assisted data analysis, into something much much more powerful. Stay tuned for updates!
