Real World AI: Fireside Chat

Data Analytics,Technology,Data Science

Join us to hear from leaders in technology, data and AI as well as opportunities to network with your peers from across the data community.

We are delighted to share details of our Data Community event for March.

We will be taking the show on the road as we partner with BJSS, who will be hosting the event at their brand new offices on West George Street.

Join us to hear from leaders in technology, data and AI as well as opportunities to network with your peers from across the data community.

As always we will be serving up pizzas and drinks with the added bonus of a pool table and arcades at the BJSS office.

Everyone’s had some fun on Chat GPT.

And most businesses have had a data science team for a few years.

But how do you truly incorporate AI into the fabric of your organisation, teams and processes?

Join us for this intimate fireside chat as we discuss:

-Technology – current and emerging platforms, software, and processes.

-Culture – is your organisational culture ready?

-People and AI – What skills are required? What does the data scientist of the future look like? Where will you find them?
