Over the last decade, data science has gone from a murmur to a deafening roar.
The demand for skilled data scientists is showing up everywhere—in every industry. And whatever their titles, the community of people who can do analysis, machine learning, big data, or visualization have never been more universally valued.
It’s a good time to be a data scientist.
As a senior recruiter in AI and machine learning at Microsoft, I’ve experience this rapid evolution from the front row. We now have approximately 5,000 members that belong to the company’s internal Machine Learning and Data Science community, sharing insights and technical expertise across nearly every team and discipline. They’re woven into our very DNA.
A lot of these folks will be in Atlanta this September 26–27 at the Microsoft Data Science Summit—together with leading thinkers, researchers, and experts from across data science and machine learning. They’ll be sharing strategies, tools, tips, and breakthroughs with the data science community.
Build your skills, see what your peers are up to, and get hands on with the latest tech.
Data scientists of all stripes are integral for driving business forward, understanding customers, and helping organizations innovate. And right now, new tools are emerging quickly to help you move even faster. In Atlanta, you’ll get an insider’s look at the new ways that Microsoft and other businesses are applying these technologies, and get hands-on training in using them yourself. Questions about Cortana Intelligence Suite, SQL Server, or Microsoft R? This is the place to deepen your expertise. Set up a 1:1 meeting with the people who build and run these technologies to get answers that fit your particular scenario.
Data science is exploding in so many directions that there’s a breathtaking array of demos and real-world examples awaiting you as well. Come see what others are doing. Share ideas, puzzles, and successes with your peers and Microsoft presenters. And discover new ways to help your organization and expand your career.
