Event Details

Working together with industry, university and government, our goal is to make Massachusetts a global leader in the use of data science, AI, machine learning and related fields - and a model for the data partnerships needed to respond to grand challenges. That means assuring we have the most interesting cutting edge work solving hard problems in Boston and across the state that will attract the most outstanding talent - to our large firms and institutions, to start ups and to our universities. And it means pooling resources and sharing assets and establishing data collaborations that will draw new large scale funding from the private sector and from Washington.

We hope you can join us as we lay the foundation to establish the networks, collaborations and partnerships to better organize our fragmented regional assets.

 This conference offers an opportunity to connect with other Boston leaders in an interactive format combining thought-provoking presentations and agenda-setting table discussions. A networking cocktail reception will immediately follow the program’s conclusion.
