Data Pioneers 2019

November 7th 2019, Dornbirn

About The Event

After the great success of the Data Pioneers 2018 conference, we are going into the second round!

Extracting knowledge from data and using it to build data products as well as optimize industrial processes and business becomes more and more present and is inevitable to ensure competitiveness. The Data Pioneers 2019 conference provides a regional platform for data scientists to exchange experiences on how to successfully use data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence in industry and business. The conference offers a day of inspiring talks and the possibility to network with like-minded data scientists, data engineers and team leaders.

Data Pioneers is created because we truly believe that the Allgäu and the Vierländerregion Bodensee with the region around the Lake of Constance, Vorarlberg, St. Galler Rheintal, and Liechtenstein is an exciting area with established enterprises as well as aspiring startups working in a data-driven way or on data products. Our motivation is to create a stimulating event with real-world applications of predictive analytics, examples of crunching data on an industrial scale, and exchange on establishing a data-driven culture. Exciting talks should spark the imagination, the open culture should lead to discussions, and the mindset of the conference should make data pioneers ready to drive future innovations.
