Summit at glance

Nordic Data Science and Machine Learning Summit is an annual event bringing together the Data Science Community in the Nordics to share ideas, and discuss ways to harness the full potential of Data Science and Machine Learning. The agenda is suited to guide you through the process of extracting knowledge from data by using the latest methodologies, tools and algorithms. With domestic and international speakers on stage, workshops, interactive panel discussion and plenty of learning and networking activities in the exhibition area, the Nordic Data Science and Machine Learning Summit is the place to be for all professionals and organisations working with utilization of Data Science, Machine and Deep Learning, to innovate and improve their business.

What’s this event all about?

4 Stages

• Applied Data Science
• Machine Learning and AI
• Tools and Infrastructure
• Campfire sessions – Management, Strategy & Ethics

Domestic and International speakers. All presentations will last 30 minutes, and will be held in English 

Post-Event Workshops

For those who would like to get an opportunity to dive deep into a particular topic, process, or technology, we are setting up some Hands-on three-hour workshops with coffee break in-between. Three of the workshops with be technical and one on strategy and value. As they are going in parallel you can attend only one of the four. All workshops are limited to 50 participants.

Need-to-know and Up-to-date Topics

The agenda is carefully designed to match the delegate community challenges and needs. Based on the last year’s feedback and our pre-event research, we have constructed the agenda that emulates the current market maturity, current project objectives, as well the aspiration for future technology insight.

Campfire Sessions

Same as last year we have a new discussion stage. Presenters and a panellist will present a case in 20 minutes and then open the discussion with the audience. The goal is to create honest, insightful, and problem-solving discussions. This year’s topic covered will be management, strategy, and ethics. To ensure fostering of good discussions, the room will be limited to 70 participants.

More Demos in the Expo Area

Last year’s delegates asked for more demos during the summit. On this year’s summit we are bringing some of the leading technology and service providers in the area, some of them presenting their tools and services for the first time in Sweden. To make it more transparent and relevant for you, the demos presented during the summit will be listed in the agenda and on the event webpage.

Networking Program

On recommendation of last year’s delegates, on this edition we are continuing with mixed panels composed of practitioners and experts. By mixing the panels, our intent is to create a good discussion and a contrast between what is possible in the area and what is actually done in organisations today.
