Event The 6th International Conference on Big DataCost: FREE
The focus of this year’s conference is on the use of Data Science for official statistics, in particular the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. In addition to the creation of Big Data centers next to the National Statistical Offices (NSOs), for example in the Republic of Korea or in the Netherlands, NSOs have started creating Data Science Campuses (for example in UK, Rwanda an UAE). What do these centers do? In general, these centers act as R&D centers, which develop and test new methods. They also have an educational program usually in cooperation with some universities.
