Inaugural Tutorial Attended by 120

The first KDD.SG tutorial jointly organized by SIGKDD Singapore and MAS was successfully held on September 14, 2017 at the MAS Theatrette.

We extend our special thanks to the tutorial speaker, Dr. Graham Williams, who delivered an informative hands-on session on machine learning with R.

The event could not have happened without the generous support by the MAS team, namely: Zhi Rong Chng, Su Fen Lee, and David Hardoon.

We are particularly grateful for the strong support from the community.  120 attendees came from various organizations in Singapore, including the universities (e.g., NUS, NTU, SMU), government agencies (e.g., MAS), as well as companies (e.g., KPMG, SingTel, UOB, PwC, DHL, DBS, SAS).

We look forward to organizing more events and activities towards building a stronger data science community in Singapore.
