The All-New Conference for the Rapidly Evolving Data Science Industry
Acquiring the Right Talent, Building and Maintaining the Team to Ultimately Build Trust in Data Science
Our CDAO Africa and DataCon Africa events are now well established and definitely seen as the ‘go-to’ forums for the data & analytics community. Thus, Data Science Africa will be positioned as the leading data science event in Africa.
Data Science Africa is the first forum in Africa established for the data science community to get together and’learn from peers, discuss challenges, solutions, new ideas and the future of data science.
Heads of data science are facing various challenges such as’hiring the right talent, structuring the team right, getting buy-in and trust from business,
scaling models across the organisation, getting good quality and accurate data, process automation, dealing with data in an ethicalmanner and more.
Although Data Scientists are high on demand, there has been no formal education on Data Science from institutions like universities and colleges until recently. Currently, data scientists have evolved from other roles such as analysts, statisticians or programmers. ‘This is a very new industry, but the growth rate is tremendous which is exactly why this forum is needed now.
