DataTalent focuses on developing the skills Scotland’s data talent need to help achieve Scotland’s data-driven future prosperity, and helping organisations access that talent.
Activities throughout the day include speakers demonstrating their innovative data science projects, skills workshops, panel discussions, recruiting company showcases and plenty of structured and unstructured networking time.
The theme of DataFest 2021 is #OurData. In previous DataFests, we have celebrated the individuals and teams driving data innovation in Scotland. This year, we are focusing on all of us – a community which can collect, create, and use our data for good. Throughout 2021 we will be exploring the theme of #OurData and the impact data has on people’s lives in the 21st Century. We’ll be tackling the big questions from the perspectives of #OurPlanet – covering the environment and climate change; #OurPeople – which covers all things social, including health and wellbeing; and #OurFuture – exploring the companies and technologies that will shape the decades to come. Each of these themed weeks will have a DataTech event, a DataTalent, and a variety of fringe events.
You can purchase tickets for an individual DataTalent or all three for a discounted price.
Please note: the third and final DataTalent event will be on the 23rd of November, not in the OurPlanet week.
