Exposing the latest data science research, practices and technologies,
Connecting regional researchers and practitioners to pioneering global data science networks,
Exchanging ideas and encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration.
This year’s conference features leading data scientists from industry and academia including globally ranked speakers such as IBM’s Marie Wallace, and LinkedIn World Economic Graph’s Jacqui Barrett to name a few.
