The Future of Data Science and AI in South Florida

WiDS Miami 2021 is a virtual data science conference highlighting the work of female data scientists and will feature a special focus on the future of data science and AI in South Florida in a post-pandemic world. WiDS Miami is an independent event organized by Group for Resilient and Inclusive Tech (G.R.I.T.), which also organizes R-Ladies Miami, and has hosted speakers such Hadley Wickham, Dr. Safiya Umoja Noble, and Max Kuhn, among others.

This half-day conference is an opportunity to hear about the latest applications of data science as well as gain insights into how data science will play a key role in shaping South Florida in the coming years. Talks do not have to be specifically about South Florida, as general AI trends will influence the region as well, and South Florida is becoming more widely recognized as a regional tech hub.
