Analytics Vidhya Announcement Beginner

Imagine a world, where…

the next gen data scientists are building intelligent bots, droids, humanoids to unleash a new era in human civilisation.

A world where we are doing cutting-edge research in latest technologies including Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Reinforcement learning. That research is reaching the industry and is being applied to create products which were never seen before.

A world where technological innovations and their applications will enable us to solve problems impacting millions of people in a manner people could not even imagine a few years ago.

So, what do we need to build this world?

We need to “Build The Next-Gen Data Science Ecosystem”

This is the world we dream at Analytics Vidhya. This is the world which we are creating. We are building this step by step and we will not rest till we reach there.


DataHack Summit 2018 – The Next-Gen AI, ML & IOT Conference

DataHack Summit 2017 was the first time we saw this ecosystem coming together in India. We saw Dr. Kirk Borne laying out latest industry trends in his Keynote. We saw practitioners presenting the impact of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Cyber Security, Bio genomics, Automotives, Financial Services and several other industries. We saw multiple hands-on workshops teaching the latest tools and techniques to our community members.

This year at DataHack Summit 2018 – we are not only dreaming bigger, but we are also planning to showcase you the world where “Humans meet Artificial Intelligence”. We will showcase the latest industry case studies, the latest research in AI and live hack sessions building Artificial Intelligence in front of you. You will see machines becoming smarter in front of your eyes and some even doing things better than humans in specific tasks.

The dates are very close to US Holiday season which is peak for retail. It is considered very critical business period and pretty much everyone in those organisations will be on high alert at that time. I think we will have more participation from the retail space if you adjust your date to accommodate that. Thank you Reply

Thanks Arnab for that suggestion. We also deliberated on this - but the trade off was to bring it closer to the Indian Holiday season (Diwali) or US Holiday season. We thought this was the sweet spot. Having 10 - 15 days after Diwali vacations should enable people to come back to offices and attend the conference. The other option we had was to pull the conference all the way back to late Sept / early October, which would have been a bit early, given the plan of things we want to execute as part of the Summit.

There was an announcement earlier about AV DataFest 2018 happening in Mumbai. But that page doesn't seem to be active anymore. Has that plan been dropped? Reply

I am new to the field of Machine Learning. The closest I have been to this field is after completing Andrew Ng's course on Coursera with certification. Will it be beneficial for me to attend this conference? Will I be able to understand part of the conference even with the basic knowledge? Reply
