Event description
Bridging Academia and Industry in Data Science

About this Event

At bitgrit, we aim to foster a world of open communication and knowledge sharing in the world of Data Science. The World Data Science Forum (WDSF) represents one of our efforts to do so. A conference-style event featuring prominent figures from the worlds of academia, government, and industry, the WDSF provides a glimpse into the diversity that can be found in the world of data science -- nurturing connection and conversation between figures across different verticals and sectors.

Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 of the WDSF, hosted in 2018, were both simultaneously held in India and Japan, meaning that speakers and audiences were present in two venues at once, facilitated through a video live stream.

For Vol. 3, we have made a leap from the East of Asia into the Middle East –– now hosting the WDSF in Dubai, a global hub of innovation and technology.

WDSF Vol. 3 in Dubai

The theme of the third WDSF is "Data Science for Good." We envision this World Data Science Forum as a place for constructive discussion into the applications of data science in the following categories.

1. AI and Social Good

2. Environmental Protection/Global Warming

3. Alternative Energy

4. Community Activism

5. Social Disparity, Minorities, and Equality

Guest speakers include Cansu Canca, Todd Terrazas, Professor Eiad Yafi, Tanya Rawat, Oliver Hall, and more. More updates to come soon!
