Welcome to the Chief Data Scientist Forum, USA 2016

San Francisco, USA, November 16th – 17th

The Data Scientist has been called ‘the sexiest job of the 21st century’, and for good reason. By combining computer science, mathematics, and statistics with business knowledge, the Chief Data Scientist (CDS) offers organizations the ability to utilize their data in a more exploratory manner. As the number of data sources explodes, the CDS uses the latest tools and techniques to experiment, test assumptions, and build models that answer key business questions as well as identify new opportunities and ways of working. By introducing scientific rigour, CDSs are able to help organizations reach their goals, whatever they may be, without relying on intuition alone.

The Chief Data Scientist Forum will bring together over 100 senior-level data science peers to share their latest innovations, best practises, challenges and use cases, as well as facilitate conversations and connections. By attending you can benefit directly from their experience and insight. Further, our interactive formats means the end to endless powerpoint presentations, with only a few minutes to for questions. Alongside keynote presentations from our senior speaker line-up, our informal discussion groups, in-depth masterclasses and networking sessions provide you with the opportunity to take away the new ideas and information you need to deliver real benefits to your company.
