Bristol Data Week 2023

Bristol Data Week 2023, June 2023, #BristolDataWeek 

Thank you to all our attendees, speakers and sponsors for a fantastic Bristol Data week! 

We held our 6th data week in June - with interactive talks, training, and workshops, open to all and completely free of charge. We held a mix of events online and in-person, from training on how to use Python and R, inclusive data workshops and free networking lunches. 

We also had a fantastic joint event with the University of the West of England on Collaborating with communities using data and AI to create more inclusive cultures which took place at the Bristol Beacon. We heard about the latest advances in Data Science, Data-intensive research, and Artificial Intelligence, with a diverse mix of inspiring speakers and interactive displays.  We also heard from our fantastic panel on how communities could use data and AI like ChatGPT to tackle key issues including inclusivity, protecting the vulnerable, and climate change.
