Dear All, as you may have heard, in efforts to control the spread of the COVID-19 Virus, the Austrian government has imposed restrictions on mobility, and is discouraging unnecessary social gatherings. Therefore, the VDSG will suspend its activities until the government ban is lifted. We appreciate your understanding, and hope to see you all when things have settled.
The Vienna Data Science Group [VDSG] is a nonprofit association promoting knowledge about data science. We connect data scientists in Europe and all around the world. Our members are passionate data scientists from various areas of research and industry.
On the verge of the Age of Data, the world is changing at a rapid pace. This change, being fundamental in nature, is full of opportunities and risks. VDSG was founded in 2015 with the goal of establishing a platform for knowledge exchange between data professionals from research and industry, data enthusiasts and other interested parties, thus enabling them to seize opportunities and help understanding better the risks lying ahead.
Our activities are all about knowledge sharing and networking, guided by VDSG’s charitable objective: the promotion of data science. As such, we
- grow a network of data scientists and companies,
- collaborate with like-minded organisations,
- organise public events such as talks and hackathons, and
- organise workshops and offer neutral consultation to companies and other organisations.
All of this we do pro bono, motivated by our passion for data science, our strive for knowledge gain and our firm believe in the huge impact of data science on our lives and society as a whole.
If you feel this is something for you, please, don’t hestitate and contact us.
