About WDSF

What is WDSF?

The World Data Science Forum is our effort to foster a culture of open communication and provide a glimpse into the diversity that can be found in the world of data science. This conference-style event brings together speakers spanning across a wealth of different backgrounds to share their insights on the use of data science in the world - coming from the worlds of not only industry and academia, but also local data science movements and more.

Three WDSF events have been held so far in Japan, India, and Dubai, with the upcoming WDSF 4 to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Our goal with the upcoming WDSF is to provide a valuable opportunity to discuss trends in data science and AI around the world and to connect data scientists, scholars, and business people.
