Data Science Week Highlights #DataScienceWeek
Hello there,

Last week on Siliconrepublic.com, we delved into an area full of exciting innovations and advancements – the world of data science.

Data science is currently experiencing a surge in popularity, as businesses of all stripes begin to see the importance and the benefits of analytics, data mining and visualisation.
  • We spoke to leaders in data science, and asked them how they see the sector developing
  • We looked at entrepreneurial companies getting into the industry with data science start-ups
  • We heard from experts about data protection legislation
Data science is an ever-growing field, and its ripples are far-reaching. Our coverage will reflect that. Expect to see more data science stories on Siliconrepublic.com as the year progresses, and keep an eye out for detailed looks at other emerging sectors.

Thanks for reading,
The Siliconrepublic.com team
