I've just started working on this data, here is my repo for this challenge where i'm trying to understand the data and the problem to solve. I will be updating this notebook as soon as i make some progress.
Update : Exploration is somewhat well developed. Posted a starter notebook in Python ( Jupyter Notebook ) that gets you around the 30th spot. Intuition behind the features generated in the baseline model is in the other notebook in order to understand the logic behind such features.
