Why we are so excited about DataHack Summit 2017?

Kunal Jain 23 Sep, 2017 • 3 min read

Recently I attended a Data Science conference – full with celebrated & experienced speakers, nice looking agenda having multiple tracks and attended by a large number of industry professionals.

What I took away from the conference was 2 days of networking, bunch of exchanged visiting cards and may be one good session which was useful for the data scientist inside me to some degree. Most of the sessions talked about Analytics / Data Science from a very high level to be useful for me. The same use cases – Alexa using Deep Learning or Target being able to predict a pregnancy in advance or Google driverless cars being slapped in sessions after sessions!

This is not the first time this happened to me – this actually happens almost every time I attend an event like this. I know there are many more practitioners who feel the same about Data Science events in India.

This is exactly what we will change in DataHack Summit 2017 in Bengaluru November 9 – 11, 2017


The DataHack Summit philosophy

DataHack Summit (DHS) is a conference created for the data science practitioner. It is a conference which celebrates the awesome work being done by data scientists across the globe and showcases it to the rest of the community. It is a conference where we talk data science, we breathe data science and we experience data science like never before.

DataHack Summit is a festival for those who don’t see numbers as just numbers. It is a festival for those who see numbers as designs and patterns and trends, those who see and appreciate this art of dealing with data.

DHS 2017 aims to show the bleeding edge, the horizon and the impact of data science to the professionals who perform it every day. It aims to inspire you with the new tools, techniques and applications by bringing the best in data science together.


Speakers @ DataHack Summit 2017

Our philosophy reflect directly in our speakers. All the speakers are Data Science practitioners and leaders.
