Vision Data Science 2019: A playground for great ideas developed by highly motivated students
What is Data Science and how business fell in love with Data Science, what Machine Learning can and can't do, and how the Blockchain is changing money and business – these are some of the hottest IT topics which were discussed during five days in March at VISION DATA SCIENCE 2019. Adacta supported this project which was organized by students' association - ESTIEM LG Belgrade.
ESTIEM LG Belgrade – Developing the future leaders of society
With 60.000 students, 80 local groups in 31 countries, 180+ events organized every year – ESTIEM is the strongest network for students of Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) in Europe. Based on this structure, ESTIEM makes links between students, academia and companies in order to improve students skills kit required for modern business.
One of the largest local groups with 4 local and 30 international projects, ESTIEM LG Belgrade organized an event - Vision Data Science 2019 from March 10-17 at Science Technology Park in Belgrade. The main aim of this event was to give IEM students practical insights to current and future topics and trends from areas such as economy, society and technology while bridging the gap between academic and corporate environment.
Data Science and Blockchain – You need Vision to see
During those five days, students had a chance to extand their knowledge about all of the most exciting IT topics buzzing in 2019 – Data Science, Blockchain technology, Internet of Things and Business Intelligence.
With principle „learning by doing“, this event included numerous workshops, fun activities and case study through which students gained deep knowledge about Data Science, what the difference is between big data and smart data, what Internet can tell us about who we are, what Machine Learning is and what it looks like in industry, to beat or not to beat Bitcoin and should we accept our reality or fight for the better one with AI, VR or IoT.
"Vision Data Science gathered students from 11 different European countries to learn from Serbian experts in the field about Data Science and Blockchain. During those five days, international students had chance to closely get to know new arising trends in the IT world and create a solid ground for their further work in the fields of Data Science and Blockchain. The event ended with a Case Study where students got the chance to implement concepts they had learnt in the past days."
- Aleksa Lukić, Vice President of Corporate Relations at ESTIEM LG Belgrade
"It was a wonderful experience for all of us. During these five days, we did not only extend our existing knowledge, but it was also a great chance to make very good friendships all over Europe. Big thanks to everyone who was a part of this magnificent project. See you next year in Belgrade with new interesting IT topics.“
- Anđela Vasojević, Corporate Relations Manager at ESTIEM LG Belgrade
