Data Science
Leaders Summit

Thank you to those who attended! Visit the Data Science Pop-up site to learn about and register for upcoming data science events.

Rev features interactive sessions, stimulating conversations, and tutorials about how to run, manage, and accelerate data science as an organizational capability.

Leaders in the data science community present the challenges their organizations have faced in becoming model-driven and provide frameworks, innovations, and tangible tips for you to take back and put to work in your daily life. Topics span high-level questions like where data science fits in your organization to technical challenges like the best way to leverage cloud-based GPU resources. Rev is the next generation of the popular Data Science Pop-up series which has hosted thousands of attendees over the past two years.

Who is it for?

Rev is a summit for data science leaders, by data science leaders. People who run data science teams require a space to learn, collaborate, and discuss how to elevate data science’s role in organizations. Attendees include current and aspiring data science leaders from organizations of all sizes and industries, from high-tech to non-profit.

What to expect

You will learn:

  • Specific steps the world’s leading model-driven organizations took to elevate data science internally.
  • The key barriers organizations face, and how to apply a proven framework of people, process, and technologies to overcome those barriers.

You will get:

  • Actionable artifacts you can take back to your office and use, like:

    • Pre-project checklists
    • Sample Jupyter notebooks
    • Business case templates

    and more…

Meet and collaborate with:

  • Leaders across industries and companies who share a common belief that data science is (or can be) a key differentiator for their organizations.
  • Leaders on the path to elevate data science to a C-level concern.
  • Tomorrow’s chief data scientists who spend their time hands-on-keyboard, leading from the front.
