We would love to see you at the Royal Statistical Society to listen and discuss the theme of collaboration between industry and academia in data science and artificial intelligence.

We believe that there is huge potential in greater collaboration and have invited two excellent speakers to provide examples of how this can work in practice.

Our speakers have found a way to navigate industrial focus alongside academic research within the field of AI and we are delighted to have them join us on Wednesday the 20th of July, 7-9pm
