Inaugural meeting of the new RSS Data Science Section

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in Sections and local group meeting reports

The RSS was delighted to host the very first meeting of its new Data Science section on 19 June 2017. The meeting covered the new section's remit and presented the data science topics that it aims to address over next few years – notably around the industrialisation and professionalisation of data science. This was followed by short invited responses by three representatives from government, academia and industry, while RSS President, Sir David Spiegelhalter, responded on behalf of the Society to the data science initiative and explained how it fits in with the overall work of the Society.

If you are interested in becoming involved in the section, visit to read the DSS launch documents and feed into the process by completing a 12-question paper. Deadline for comments: 3rd July.
