Tuesday, May 7 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Calgary
Data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are BIG buzzwords but what do they really mean to you and your business?
Experts from Cybera (Alberta’s not-for-profit technology accelerator) will untangle the buzzwords and jargon, and show you how data science is impacting business through real-world examples. You will learn about what to consider before you start using data science to improve your business and about current challenges facing the industry.
We will help shed light on how Alberta businesses (both big and small) can navigate this complex landscape of buzzwords, and translate it into practical knowledge to be better prepared to do more with their data.
This introductory session is geared towards the non-technical business audience (start-ups, entrepreneurs, social innovators or small-to-medium sized business) looking to understand the world of data science and are considering implementing it in their organizations.
