Ladies of Data 2021

An inclusive data driven conversation

Be welcome to the second edition of Ladies of Data! An inclusive event for everyone who is interested in data science & diversity.

In the keynotes, be inspired by successful women in data science, the lessons they learned and their unique perspectives. Join our breakout sessions – hosted by a diverse set of speakers and moderators – for discussions about current hot topics in data science and AI.

Theme: The Platform Economy

Platforms generate enormous amount of data. More than half of top-10 greatest capitalization companies in the world are platform-based, which was not the case some 10-15 years ago. In the meanwhile, the companies become increasingly aware of the advantages and dangers of the platform economy, and dynamics of competition have changed dramatically.

This event will focus on the new reality and how data science methods contribute to doing business in the platform economy.
