DataFest Aberdeen

March 11 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Scotland’s two-week festival of Data Innovation comes back from the 9th to 20th March 2020. A series of events across Scotland, run by external partners under the DataFest umbrella. This can include hackathons, debates, meetups, and any innovative activities focused on data innovation and collaboration #BeyondData.

To mark the start of DataFest Fringe events in Aberdeen, The Data Lab is holding an event at the ONE Tech Hub to celebrate data and its capabilities across all industries. The morning event will be kicked off by a 30minute talk from our headline speaker, former McLaren Formula One pit crew member Marc Priestly, showcasing the central role data has to play in an industry where every millisecond counts.

This will be followed by a series of short presentations highlighting the opportunities in the north east due to the increase in accessible data and Data Science talent. There will also be a panel to end the morning with discussing the cultural changes involved in getting the best value from your data and data projects.

The afternoon will consist of multiple Fringe events located throughout the ONE Tech Hub held by the local Data Science community.

This event is being supported by Scottish Enterprise, Merkle Aquila and the ONE Tech Hub.
