Upcoming data science events in Western Australia


The increasing threat of the spread of COVID-19 has led to a change in the way in which we all conduct business. Whilst we, and the Data Science Community, have postponed all of our physical events and activities, it doesn't mean we can't collaborate, learn and connect from the comfort of our own homes!

Check out some of these fantastic upcoming virtual events.
