Data Science Day 2018
- Date: May 24, 2018
- Place: Rosensäle, Fürstengraben 27, 07743 Jena
- Organized by: Theoretical Computer Science, FSU Jena
- Workshop Website: No longer available.
The second Data Science Day again took place at the "Rosensäle". A keynote was given by Kristian Kersting, TU Darmstadt, who convinced the audience of one of his favourite dreams: the automatic data scientist. The key idea behind this vision is to put probabilistic deep learning into the data science stack. In doing so, Kristian Kersting envisions a form of artifical intelligence that makes data analysis and reporting accessible to a broader audience of non-data scientists. Like its predecessor, the second Data Sciene Day was well-attended and paved the way to organize this event annually.
