3rd International Hands on Training Workshop: Data Science in Practice

Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC) in collaboration with Predictive Analytics Lab (National Center for Big Data and Cloud Computing) is organizing a "3rd International Hands on Training Workshop: Data Science in Practice" which will be held on 23rd -27th November 2018 (9am-6pm), at SZABIST, Islamabad Campus. Various eminent data science practitioners from Germany, Netherlands, and Pakistan representing IBM Watson, KPMG, Teradata, PUCIT, and SZABIST will conduct the various sessions on state-of-the-art technical subjects and tools. We have invited academic and industrial researchers, entrepreneurs, representative from public, private and non-profit sectors, consultants, practitioners and scholars to attend the intellectual workshop.

The workshop aims to introduce participants to the exciting field of Data Science with hands on experience using popular tools and libraries. This workshop takes an incremental approach of "Engage, Empower, Enable, Educate and Energize" (EEEE) to train new resources. The workshop will also create awareness about ethics and responsibilities underlying a data driven field. It will also provide an opportunity to showcase its expertise in Data Sciences, possibly opening venues for international collaboration.
