The world of Data Science molds the way we work in the office, our home life and even in our choices of entertainment activities. Every day we are creating more Data than what was created between the beginning of time and 2003. It is the Data Scientists that use this data, to create new innovations and change the way we live. It is time tohonour these individuals and industry experts.
Ireland is fast becoming a hub for the Data Science industry, and the goal of these awards is to raise awareness about the many great Irish data success stories and to celebrate these achievements.
Linda Davis, our CEO and DatSci Judge, explains why data science is so important.
“Access to data at our fingertips is empowering our worlds day to day, as we learn more about our behaviour and how we are likely to behave in the future. This will impact every element of our lives from medical to how we eat to how we shop. Data is carving the commercial future of our world.”
The shortlist of nominations will be announced at the end of August and the winners will be announced at our awards event at the Aviva, Dublin on the 22nd September 2016.
