Announcing the diSummit 2020 + Gala Night + #startAI + JobFair + AIweek in March

Dear Friends,

We are happy to announce the opening of the early registration for the Data Innovation Summit 2020. Our event will take place at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) on June 24th, 25th 2020.

This year’s edition is dedicated to the topic AI beyond the hype and is focused on practical applications of AI in business and everyday life.

Currently, we are evolving from AI product and solution development to real-life implementations in all areas of life, e.g., industry, telecommunications, energy, finance, health and government.
Come and see for yourself how the concrete AI solutions will help you to reduce the cost, save time and money, optimize your customer journey and create better customer satisfaction. (Whether you are a beginner or a confirmed AI player, there will be a lot of opportunities to discover new examples of how to deploy AI on every level of your company and across all the departments, whether it is HR, Marketing, Sales, Client Service etc).

6th edition already:

For our sixth edition, we have the honour to welcome companies and participants from Benelux and, for the first time, from Canada.
Thanks to its previous success our event is growing and will last not one but two days, fully packed with Tech talks, Business talks, Masterclasses and Hands-on Workshops.

2 days of diSummit:

  1. The first day of the diSummit, June 24th will be dedicated to Tech and will allow you to deep-dive into the technical aspects of AI.
  2. The second day will be a Business Day and will mainly focus on the real-life use cases and implementations of AI.

Our main objective is to take you beyond the hype of AI, to show its practical applications and to bring you in contact with a variety of market players, globally and locally, as well as with the #ai4belgium and #datascience communities in Belgium.
Besides, there will also be the traditional Partner Village, Job Corner and AI-awards. At the end of the first day, we will host the Gala night and, on the request of many of our partners and participants, we will finish on a high note with our famous diSummit barbecue!

Of course, diSummit would not be such a success without your participation. That is why we are launching the first call for participants. Come and share your story and inspire others with your example!

Join the Data Science Job Fair

Introducing our Summer Coding Camp participants to organisations interested to sponsor their Data Science Bootcamp is key to DigitYser’s mindset

jobfair4

We are so excited to have been contacted by so many talented professionals interested to join our Summer Coding Camp! This is a clear sign on the awareness towards the importance of developing and promoting Data Science skills.

This is a great prelude for the first Data Science Job Fair 2017 edition, where we bring in contact the participants of our Summer Coding Camp with organisations who are interested to sponsor their Data Science Bootcamp and to invite them to work for them. This is in line DigitYser’s mindset, which is highly focused on bringing together different stakeholders around the activities we organise.

A year ago, during each of our Data Science Job Fairs, an average of 20 companies (Innovation and Training Partners) were able to meet 40 participants of our Summer Coding Camp and Data ScienceBootcamp. This is a great opportunity which goes beyond a typical job fair, as the event’s format to both the training’s participants and the organisations to briefly present themselves to everyone, ensuring a clear visibility of their profiles and the added value they bring along.

The event is open to everyone: feel free to book your place and join us on August 1st. It is free of charge for the Summer Coding Camp participants and for our partners. Don’t hesitate to contact Philippe (pvanimpe@gmail.com) if you want to know all the benefits of being a partner.

If you want to join the Summer Coding Camp, you are still on time! Join our informative session on July 17th. or contact us asap via e-mail (training@di-academy.com).

Keep an eye on the upcoming events on our Facebook page, and join us at our Data Science events at DigitYser! We look forward to meeting you soon!
