Research Frontiers

The Most Advanced Active Research, Summarized

Research Frontiers Track

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 this can be a daunting task.

The Most Advanced Research, Summarized

The Research Frontiers track is the first of its kind. You don’t have to parse the contents of countless papers or attend academic conferences; instead, we bring the most relevant information to you.  World-class academics, researchers, and professionals summarize the latest research across focus areas, and detail what’s important.
