Data Science Day 2019

BigInsight, SIRIUS and DataScience@UiO welcome the Data Science community to the third annual Data Science Day.

Time and place: Data Science Day 2019 Oct. 16, 2019 5:30 PM–10:00 PM, The Science Library, Vilhelm Bjerknes hus Add to calendar

On 16 October BigInsight, SIRIUS, and DataScience@UiO welcome the data science community to an evening of socialisation, learning and entertainment. 

This year, we have three exciting talks lined up. Christos Dimitrakakis and Geir Storvik from the University of Oslo, and Lauren Edelson from Workplace by Facebook will talk about different aspects of data science. Before and after the talks we gather in the Science Library foyer for mingling and refreshments.

Continuing the success from the last two years, we invite interested parties from industry to set up stands where they can present themselves to the rest of our guests. Our goal is to bring all parts of the data science community together for a unique networking opportunity.

Data Science Day is an event for everyone, whether you are familiar with data science practices, or you are simply curious what data science is all about.

The event is free, open for all audiences, and requires no registration. There will be served some food, snacks and soft drinks.
