BGU's Data Science Community
Who We Are
DiSCo is a data science community at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. We are a community with a goal of overall development and growth of students and professional enthusiasts in Beer-Sheva in the areas of data mining, data science, and machine learning. DiSCo meetups act as a platform to provide hands-on experience in data science tools and techniques, while networking and having fun. We are all about learning, snacks and friendship.
Data science, also known as data-driven science, is an interdisciplinary field of scientific methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured, similar to data mining. Harvard Business Review called it "The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century."
The motivation of this club is to serve as a platform for BGU data science enthusiasts to pursue their interests in data science to learn, network, collaborate, create, and innovate.
Meet experts from the industry and learn about real-world data science challenges
