Data Science Conference


This is for anyone interested in Data. 

It’s for people wanting to find out more – not for the specialists. It’s about showcasing people in the industry that work in it and love it. 

It’s about discussing what it’s about and what it could be

It’s about the ethics of it and whether it’s something for you

We’re reaching out to:

  • Anyone who has previously studied in a related subject
  • Anyone who has spent years working with data – (and yes this includes excel spreadsheets)
  • Anyone who wants to translate from another discipline with an interest in data
  • Anyone who just wants to find out more
  • Anyone who has done research that involved data (large or complex)
  • Anyone who wants to fix the world’s issues
