For September, DataScience Sg is starting a new series specially for the undergrads. The series aims to showcase undergrads and fresh grads project work.
The series is meant to encourage youths in joining the data science & artificial intelligence career. And for the employers to come in and recruit talents for your companies.
In this inaugural meetup for the series, we have the following youths to share about their work and project and how their projects helped them in their current career.
DSSG strongly encourage current undergrads and fresh grads to join us in this series. Its still open to the general community!
