Data science is rapidly evolving as an essential interdisciplinary field, where advances often result from combinations of ideas from several disciplines. This annual conference is for professionals and practitioners working in machine learning, deep learning, data mining, artificial intelligence, or big data problems broadly. Recognizing that discovery and innovation happens at interfaces of disciplines and communities, the conference aims to bring together a diverse set of people from multiple communities spanning academia and industry.
Attended by 400 leaders and experts in person, the conference will strike a balance between applied and fundamental data science, and academia and industry. This combination of research and application discussion will create a venue for networking, collaboration, and partnership building. The conference will take place in-person at the Bioscience Research Collaborative Building (BRC) on Rice University's campus.
The 2021 AI and Data Science Conference is scheduled to take place October 25-27. Wednesday, October 27 will be an add-on day that will include hands-on tutorial sessions and additional technical talks. More details provided soon.
