We are back !!
After a short hiatus, Meetup.ai is back in Berlin to continue doing what we think we do reasonably well most days: Have our Data&Drinks Event series. Hopefully, we will see a mix of past guest and some newcomers. For those that are new to the scene, here is what you will need to know:
This series takes place at the first Wednesday of the month and entail a mix of networking and entertainment, with pretzels/drinks and fellow minded friends as well hands-on, real-life examples of Data Science and Machine Learning in action. We will be bringing together top-class experts and speakers to approach the grand topic of AI from different perspectives and fields. Expect 3 to 4 talks, with different degrees of complexity
With International Women's Day right around the corner, and being very aware that our industry often doesn’t have the best track record in diversity, we decided to take this opportunity to host a formidable group of female speakers.
