With this Meetup group we hope to create a home for all things JuniorDev.

We will be hosting a bi-monthly get-together known as the JuniorDev Social. Here we socialise and connect with our fellow Juniors to swap stories and share wins or disastrous fails (yup, those are normal) all while enjoying some food and drink provided by our generous sponsors.

How's your journey, ${AWESOME_DEV}?

2) Change Kai Wen, Intern, SP Digital
Topic: "Residential Move-in Detection using Utilities Consumption Data & Machine Learning"

This project is part of a bigger project which uses AI to improve the efficiency of metering to billing operations for SP Services. Meter readings are sent to the server in SP at every two months. When an electricity meter reading is sent back to the system, the reading will be checked against a system of rules. If the meter reading is too high, it might be caused by a faulty meter. Hence, technicians need to be sent to the premises to do on-site investigation. However high meter readings are also often due to someone moving into the premise, and therefore is a correct reading. This means the trip, which incurs manpower and other costs, is wasted. Unfortunately, the system of rules implemented few years ago are unable to tell the difference between a legitimate high consumption reading or an actual faulty meter. My project is to build a predictive machine learning model to detect new move-in events. By integrating this model into the daily operational flow of a meter irregularity investigation, the operations team will be able to identify if the high consumption is due to a new move-in or not and reduce false positives.
