Analytics and artificial intelligence practitioners have come together to form a non-profit organisation called the Association of Data Scientists in India (ADaSci).
The body aims to support all those working in data science, analytics, big data, AI and machine learning. Originally envisioned by Analytics India Magazine, ADaSci aims to foster a community of industry leaders, researchers and subject matter experts, while supporting the next generation of data scientists through new ideas and research. Its initial goals are to promote collaboration among data science decision makers and stakeholders, serve as a forum for research, and address data science challenges faced by organisations. It will also offer opportunities for networking, organise national and international conferences, and publish in peer reviewed journals, while providing analytics certification and continuing education, to help members with their career development.
Bhaskar Gupta (pictured), founder and CEO, Analytics India Magazine, comments: 'Analytics and AI has the potential to be the next game-changer for the industry, but the space lacks a non-profit body or an umbrella society to serve the needs of analytics professionals in India. As a non-profit society, ADaSci aims to be a one-stop platform for all career, research and networking related needs of Indian analytics professionals'.
