Workshops at DataHack Summit 2024

Hands-On Learning in Generative AI

In the rapidly evolving world of AI, staying ahead of the curve needs more than just theoretical knowledge.With Generative AI emerging as a transformative force, hands-on training is critical. Why? Because technology is best understood when put into practice. Learn to navigate the complexities behind AI models, the data management, and the limitations of real-world applications.

Generative AI is still in its nascent stages, yet the rate at which it is growing is unprecedented. And because of this rapid growth, the skills and knowledge required to excel are constantly evolving. Hands-on learning not only helps to reinforce theoretical concepts but also prepares you to tackle the challenges head-on.

Why choose DataHack Summit 2024?

At DHS 2024, you’ll dive deep into the world of Generative AI. This event is the epicenter of all the buzz, innovation, brainstorming, and exciting discussions surrounding the technology. This year, we’ve curated over 10 immersive workshops on cutting-edge topics to provide you with maximum value.

While many summits offer talks and presentations, the DataHack Summit goes way beyond that. Our workshops are not just lectures but interactive sessions where you actively participate, apply your skills and level up your expertise. These workshops aim to transform you from a passive learner to an active practitioner in just a day. This is the maximum value for a day’s worth that one can get so you know you wouldn’t want to miss it. Last year, our workshops were sold out months in advance, a testament to the quality and demand for these sessions.

Why Attend our Workshops?
