The “Kaggle effect” is a colloquial IT pro term for the effect that Kaggle, a Google machine learning community, is having on machine learning. Kaggle as a group has some sway in the IT community, and through its activities, helps to develop new outcomes related to new IT systems.
One of the most significant parts of the “Kaggle effect” has to do with the group’s prolific use of competitions to help to innovate through ML incubation of various projects. The competitions themselves promote a sense of engagement on the part of developers; that is often what someone means when they refer to the “Kaggle effect” in IT – they are talking about the drive toward cooperative and competitive models in machine learning.
