Highlands and Islands DataFest19 Fringe
From March 11-15, Highlands and Islands Enterprise is hosting a week of Fringe events for the region as part of Scotland-wide DataFest19, developed by The Data Lab Innovation Centre.
With the support of partners from industry, academia and the public-sector there will be a week-long series of events to showcase the opportunities of data science and artificial intelligence. Events will be informative and provide a platform for networking and inspiration to embrace opportunity.
This year DataFest will focus on collaboration, and on doing #datatogether. Together we’re better. It’s time to perceive data with a community and collaborative focus and see what we can achieve when we work together. Seminars across the week will echo this message.
