1st Singapore ACM SIGKDD Symposium

On Friday afternoon 27 July 2018, a number of esteemed data science thought leaders gathered at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway in the first-ever, invitation-only Singapore ACM SIGKDD Symposium.

It was an insightful session, and the attendees got to know one another, shared their current focus, exchanged ideas, and began a discussion towards a common vision.  We were very fortunate to have a diverse representation from academia, government, and industry.  There is also a consensus to pursue further such activities in the future that forge a stronger connection among the data science community in Singapore.

Look out for coming events in this space!
