Data Science Hub & the Data Science Community: Philippe Van Impe

At the recent sold-out Spark & Machine Learning Meetup in Brussels, Philippe Van Impe of the European Data Science Academy delivered a lightning talk called Data Science Hub & the Data Science Community.

Philippe's talk gave an introduction to the activities of the Data Science Community, whose mission is to educate, inspire and empower scholars and professionals to apply data sciences to address humanity’s grand challenges. They organize data4good hackathons like the denguehack.org, data science meetups, data science bootcamps and trainings, and a data innovation summit. Their Youtube channel has more than 200 educational videos from companies across Europe.
