Coming for the very first time in the UK, KDD, the world’s oldest and most important Data Science conference will be held at ExCeL London in August 2018. London has been chosen as the host city as it represents the heart of global data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning research, with the capital topping the European investment charts for funding into fast growing sectors such as Artificial Intelligence, cyber security and Fintech.
Aldo Faisal, publicity chair for KDD and Associate Professor in Data Science at Imperial College London commented: “KDD coming to the London ExCeL is both a reflection of the explosive growth in Data Science and AI and a testimony to the city’s global leadership in it.”
