Be Active on Kaggle

Kaggle is a data science community owned by Google. You can find thousands of unique datasets, competitions, and a platform to show your data science skills on Kaggle. When you are active on Kaggle, you will go through hundreds of new datasets daily that will give so many ideas for your next Data Science project.

I use Kaggle every weekend and find at least two new project ideas in less than 10 minutes. So, be active on Kaggle to find Data Science project ideas.

Find Data About Trending Events

Finding datasets based on trending events will help you get ideas for creating unique data science projects. For example, ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will start soon in October. It will be a trending event in October.

When you find trending events, search for datasets based on those events on Google Dataset Search. You will always find datasets that will help you create unique Data Science projects based on trending events.
