Data Science Research

The Most Advanced Active Research, Summarized

Data Science Research Tracks

Rapid Pace of Advancement

Data Science is a broad field and advancing at a tremendous pace. Every few months new research, models, and advances are announced.  For data science practitioners it’s essential to keep abreast of the latest advances. However, given the demands on our time that can be a daunting task.

The Most Advanced Research, Summarized

The Data Science Research track is the first of its kind.  Instead of having to parse the contents of countless papers or attend academic conferences we bring the best to you.  World-class academics, researchers, and professionals summarize the latest research across focus areas and detail what’s important.  This accelerates your insights on the latest research and serves as a foundation for more in-depth analysis.
