Advances in Data Science 2020

Institute for Data Science and AI’s 4th annual conference took place online on Tuesday 23rd June. 11 leading international data scientists from industry and academia presented recent developments in data science, with talks ranging from application-focussed to advanced data science methodologies. Thanks to IDSAI’s strong and productive relationship with event sponsor The Alan Turing Institute, this first virtual instalment of the annual conference was a great success. Over 500 participants gathered to stream the day-long event.

Recordings of the talks are now available below.
