Henrique Lopes

Audience level:


In this tutorial, we will present Nubank's newest open sourced library, FKLearn. You will learn how we combined the best practices from functional programming with the most powerful Machine Learning libraries to empower data-driven solutions at scale. We will build a full machine learning model to predict spending behavior on credit card using FKLearn main tools.
