Data Science Meetup Kuala Lumpur , 2018

Following our well-attended WiDS KL 2018 Conference in March 2018, WiDSKL is organizing a meetup on 2 November, 2018!

WiDSKL's mission is to highlight current developments in the ever-changing world of data science, as well as create awareness of the exciting projects being carried out by women data scientists locally and in the region. We hope to reach out and bring together a community of data scientists of all experience levels and all genders to generate discussions as well as support for data science projects.

As such, we are proud to be featuring two accomplished women data scientists speakers on November 2nd, 2018, who will be sharing their experience and work as data scientists in the banking and startup industries.

There will be networking sessions before and after the presentations, and we invite data scientists of all levels and genders to get to know the speakers and each other.

Come join us for an exciting evening with our two speakers!
