Data Tech is an event for data professionals: if you are a data scientist, an analyst, a recent graduate in data or an experienced IT professional, Data Tech is for you.
Previous Data Tech events were highly focused on very technical data science and academic content, but this year we intend to broaden our content to reach out to the whole spectrum of data professionals.
With keynote speakers, parallel sessions with audience questions, and cutting edge discourse, there will be plenty to take in. With Data Tech, we want to explore our role as data professionals in building our future, helping our people, and saving our planet.
We’re delighted that writer, broadcaster and author of Smoke & Mirrors: How Hype Obscures the Future and How to See Past It’ Gemma Milne will be hosting Data Tech this year.
We’ll also have keynotes from Ash Garner, Senior Manager at Mudano – delivering a talk titled ‘Building a Data Organisation Fit for Our People at Royal London’ – and James Monico from Testing for All who’ll be discussing ‘Data for Good – Deploying Rapid Analytics During COVID-19’.
There will also be a panel discussion featuring Rich Wilson (Gigged.AI), Jasmina Lazic (University of Edinburgh), and Shane Burns (Storm ID).
We will also be showcasing the work of Storm ID and hearing from Craig Turpie, Director.
