SAMSARA means the cyclical world - in Sanskrit.
Gyana is inviting you to delve into Samsara - the world of data sciences.
It will be a day of talks, advanced data science tools, real applications, exposure to cutting edge techniques large corporates are using and a hackathon-we are hosting the world's biggest 'data science hackathon' that requires no data science expertise to win!
100 diverse teams of two from organisations as varied as law & order to financial services, consumer goods and even business schools will compete to use Gyana on open datasets.
The team that finds the most interesting patterns in the data by 4pm will win 1000 GBP and so will their "nominated favourite charity".
Gyana is empowering the world to unleash their data super powers!
We will have music zones, goodie bags, sci-fi shows and delicious food to keep your energy at high levels all day.
It will be a shame to miss our absolutely famous venue at Albert Embankment which itself is the topic of many a curated talks in London.
What happens if am not a techie?
Gyana requires zero coding experience. Most teams that have registered are not techies.
