Message from the organisers: The theme of the workshop is the impact that Machine Learning tools, technologies, and algorithms, can have on the various social, economic, and technical hurdles we face daily. The fields of Data Science and Machine Learning allow us to apply a cross-disciplinary and complex lens to the multi-layered challenges of the 21st century. This event aims to educate postgraduate students with this in mind, so that they may not only envision, but also create, a more remarkable world.
The event will be both physical and virtual, with all talks presented in the morning streamed live for a larger audience, and afternoon practical sessions for postgraduate students hosted in the venue.
This conference is hosted by the Data Science Across Disciplines (DSAD) Research Group based at the University of Johannesburg’s Institute for the Future of Knowledge, as well as the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment and the Faculty of Science at the University of Johannesburg.
