Rev is where data science leaders and their teams come to learn from each other.

Rev 2 features interactive sessions, Q&A with industry luminaries, poster sessions for interesting modeling techniques and accomplishments, and stimulating conversations about how to make data science an enterprise-grade capability.

Leaders in the data science community present solutions for instrumenting workflows across the business with models. They provide frameworks, innovations, and tangible tips that are applicable to data science teams’ daily lives. Topics span high-level questions like how to best structure your data science team to technical challenges like the best way to integrate open source search engines into predictive analytics workflows.

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 data science leaders and their teams, within organizations of all sizes and industries, from high-tech to non-profit.
