The Women in Data Science initiative aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide and to support women in the field.
Women in Data Science (WiDS) Saskatoon is an independent event organized by a group of individuals in Saskatoon who are passionate about data science and innovation in Saskatchewan. The event will coincide with the annual Global Women in Data Science Conference held at Stanford University. The conference is open to everyone, regardless of gender, who is interested in engaging with and learning from the local data science community.
Coconut Software will serve as bronze level sponsors for this event.
The day will begin with a welcome announcement from the event organizers, followed by two fantastic featured speakers in Briana Brownell and Mayra Samaniego, who will share their experiences in the world of data science.
The morning will finish off with a live stream of the much-anticipated keynote address from Daphne Koller at the Stanford WiDS conference: “Machine learning: a new approach to drug discovery”
The afternoon will feature a hands-on workshop, an in-depth interview with our featured speaker Briana Brownell, and a student showcase where students will discuss their research in a lightning talk-style format. The Stanford WiDS conference will also be live streamed in the room adjacent to the main conference room.
