Event description

Description

This half day technical conference will provide opportunity to hear about interesting data science research and applications happening in Sweden, meet like-minded people, and ask questions of veterans in the field. Our goal is to create, inspire and support a strong community of women in data science, machine learning and AI in Sweden, both in academia and in the industry. It is part of the global Women in Data Science event held at Stanford University and 100+ other cities.

Come join us March 14th and celebrate the Pi day with us!

With thanks to our sponsors: iZettle, King and Northvolt!
