The Data Innovation Summit

The diSummit (Data Innovation Summit) is a one-day corporate conference taking place each year in Brussels. It is organised by the Data Science Community of Belgium to reunite all players of the data science sector, to diffuse knowledge and share ideas. It is innovative pitches, exhibition booths, head hunting and networking, all in a humane atmosphere. It is open to professionals and students interested in the sector.

Date & Time

This year’s summit will take place on 27th June at ULB Campus Solbosch. Door open at 7:30 AM, first pitch starts at 8:45 AM. Last pitch is at 17:30 PM, doors close at 18:30 PM. There is a beer garden organised by DigitYser starting then.

There have been three previous renditions until present date, all sold out to 500+ participants. We have selected a bigger venue this year to accommodate more participants.

Conference Theme

This year’s conference theme is “A.I. Demystified”. People often have a negative “evil-robots-invading-humankind” idea of A.I., when unfamiliar with the technology. That image is absolutely fictional. As such, the diSummit is organised to change that perception by spreading up-to-date knowledge to the community. A.I. is a useful tool that can optimize specific elements of digitalisation. It is a powerful tool controlled by ordinary people, no more, no less. Through the Summit, the Data Science Community hopes to facilitate the sharing of knowledge, to keep all of its members aware of all the benefits and implications of the A.I. technology.

L’alchimie numérique ou comment placer le datamining au cœur de la stratégie de son entreprise by David Eskenazi (Expert R&D – Prayon)

La Direction du groupe Prayon a fait, depuis deux ans, le pari d’exploiter la richesse contenue dans ses données. Les techniques d’analyse de l’information et d’apprentissage de modèle de données disponibles aujourd’hui permettent une révolution profonde de la manière dont les données impactent le développement d’une entreprise. L’intégration et l’exploitation des capteurs et des systèmes de stockages de données couplées à l’utilisation d’algorithmes permettant des analyses très fines et prédictives supportent des approches jusque-là peu explorées dans l’industrie chimique minérale.


Opisense platform for data science industrialisation: Use case with smart meters in the energy sector
 by Loïc Bar (CEO – Opinum)

Opinum à développé Opisense, une plateforme analytique destinée à traiter les données issues de l’IoT (Internet des objets) dans l’énergie et l’environnement. La plateforme permet d’automatiser des traitements algorithmiques dans le cadre des données issues de compteurs intelligents (smart meter) ou de système de production décentralisée d’énergie. Elle est utilisée par des sociétés comme EDF, Colruyt, Total, Lampiris, etc.

An introduction to the STRANGER package by Eric Lecoutre (Data Science Advisor – WeLoveDataScience!)

We introduce you the STRANGER package, for: Simple Toolkit in R for Anomaly Get Explain and Report. Stranger is to anomaly detection what ‘caret’ is for supervised modeling: a wrapper package providing a common way to use a set of methods (from other packages) and extending usage with some utilities such as stacking and visualizations methods. This talk won’t present the various anomaly detection methods (a workshop is in preparation) but will illustrate the typical analysis workflow with stranger on a concrete case.

#DISUMMIT – higher expectations

Dear Friends,

On June 27th the Data Science Community will hold its 4th annual conference at the ULB. You can expect a day packed with innovative ideas, lots of networking opportunities and FUN. We will have 40 speakers, 6 master classes and 6 hands-on workshops, all in the efforts of demystifying Artificial Intelligence.

Call for speakers: We have received 25 answers to our call for speakers up to now. There still are a few slots available! Hurry up in applying to speak, we are finalising the agenda. I’m sure you have one valuable lesson or another to share with our audience of 800 data experts.

The Keynote speaker: There is a budget for getting the best A.I. expert able at bringing the true face of A.I. to light to us to speak at this year’s Summit. So if you have someone in mind that impressed you recently, please send me his/her details.

The location: In the previous 3 editions of the Summit, we constantly had trouble fitting all our eager participants into the available space. No more. This year, we reserved a much much bigger location for you all – 2,5 time larger to be exact – with one plenary seating room of 800 seats and 6 big training rooms on 2 floors at the ULB Solbosch Campus Auditorium K.

Partner Village and Job Fair: There will be 2 vast areas for networking. One for the partners to show off their innovative ideas; the other for all to hire their best candidates.

Invite your team: Make from #disummit your annual team event and have a productive day with your team at the University of Brussels.

Recruit the best: You can promote your outstanding jobs, participate to the Job Fair and sponsor the tickets for students.

Network and Nerd-Out: Opportunities to network and have fun will be plenty. We will use the conversation starter app again to facilitate your connexion with the most pertinent people. After the Summit, we have a beer garden set up for you to nerd-out after work with craft beer and a barbecue. Yes.

Spread the word: As we have more capacity this year, we are implementing a special incentive program to reward your help in promoting the Summit. You are invited to bring your community at discounted rates and to earn free tickets.

I’m looking forward to meeting you again! Don’t hesitate to contact me, should you have any questions.
