DataFest19 Launch event with Cathy O'Neil

Sep 20 2018 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Data Lab Events

Join for a Morning of Insightful Talks Around Data and Ethics

Last March, a snow storm in New York meant that one of our Data Summit keynote speakers, Cathy O'Neil, couldn't make it across the Atlantic as all flights were cancelled. We said at the event that we would get her to come to Scotland later in the year, and the day has come. Cathy will be in Edinburgh on 20 September to help us launch DataFest19, and you are invited to join the event. We will soon announce a couple more speakers who will be joining the discussion.

We look forward to seeing you at the DataFest19 launch, and share some exciting news with you there!
