Main content start

LogisticsRegistration is full.
The Distinguished Lecture will be recorded and shared via our YouTube Channel.

Stanford Data Science hosted its second annual conference in 2023! This full-day conference took place on Stanford's campus on May 10th and concluded with our second talk in the SDS Distinguished Lecture series from Prof. Michael Jordan (UC Berkeley).

The day featured work from early career researchers at Stanford, working in various aspects of data science, to increase our sense of community, exchange ideas, and foster interdisciplinary collaboration. SDS aims to bring together faculty, postdocs, students, and staff in this daylong event which is designed to bridge traditional disciplinary silos and connect people who are learning from data.
