Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference KL 2018


WiDS KL 2018 conference is a part of the Global WiDS Conference which is held at Stanford University and 100+ locations around the world. The conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, which features exclusively female speakers.

Our inaugural event in KL hopes 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 to generate discussions as well as support for data science projects.

We also hope that this event will be able to serve as an introduction to data science to all aspiring data scientists, men or women, and as a gateway to enter this career path.
