The Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Section is a section of the Royal Statistical Society that was established in 2017. The section includes representatives from business, industry, government and academia and was formed to address the emerging opportunities and challenges that arise around data science and artificial intelligence. This will ultimately impact the long term success of these important areas, from a range of perspectives including societal, professional, ethical and policy.
Note: The Data Science and AI Section scope is complementary to that of the Computational Statistics & Machine Learning Section, in that the latter focuses primarily on the methodological / mathematical aspects of machine learning, while the Data Science and AI Section will focus on the application and implementation aspects.
