The Ken Kennedy Institute Data Science Conference brought together university and research labs (technology developers), key industry verticals (technology consumers), and IT industry (technology providers) that are looking at opportunities created by advances in AI, data analytics, machine learning and deep learning. The Conference struck a balance between applied and fundamental data science, and academia and industry. This combination of research and application discussion created a venue for networking, collaboration and partnership building.
My two favorite words: Self-Development & Evolution
My mantra: "The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams"
Who am I: I am a person that learns fast, adapts fast and even with partial information is good at quickly figuring out the rest..... What is needed and what is not, what is good and what is not, what will have an impact and what will not. I have learned that in order to receive you have to give and then ask. Then you need to constantly re-assess and evolve, allowing you to give and then receive in return. I am a doer that loves a good challenge & cares about making a difference through innovative science-based tech solutions. I am passionate about coding, entrepreneurship, innovation, genomics, research, personalized medicine, healthcare, life-sciences, technologies, start-ups, dancing and all sports related to sea!
