SDS|2014, the 1st Swiss Workshop on Data Science, brings together opinion-leaders, practitioners, decision-makers and researchers with interest in Data Science (including, but not limited to Big Data). Its goal is to foster exchange of ideas specifically for the Swiss market, building a community that will become a multiplier.
To this end, stakeholders from industry and academia as well as from politics and funding agencies are invited to share their thoughts, experiences and needs on projects, agendas and education. Build your network and find future partners.
Inspiring keynotes will be presented by internationally renowned Data Scientists, and there will be ample time for discussion.
