Cathcart Associates welcomes the best of machine learning to Scotland’s capital
Following the success of last year’s inaugural Scotland Machine Learning conference in Edinburgh, Cathcart Associates has announced the return of ‘ScotML’.
ScotML provides the opportunity for people to meet and chat with the best and brightest figures from across the fields of data science, machine learning and AI in a relaxed, informal environment.
The event will also see guest speakers take to the stage to discuss the latest trends and key topics within their industry. Speakers include Senior Data Scientist at Mudano, Boris Mitrovic, Elias Mistler, Data Scientist at Previse, and BI Solutions Architect at Trustmarque Solutions, Dick Wall.
Since launching the first Manchester Machine Learning back in 2016, in collaboration with AI specialists, Octavia, the event has gone from strength to strength. On the back of this success, Cathcart Associates decided to bring the event to Scotland, hosting the inaugural ScotML event at the Amazon Development Centre in July 2017.
Sam Wason, Director at Cathcart, said: “Since the first MancML in 2016, our sell-out Machine Learning events have developed a stellar reputation across the North West in the fields of Data Science and Machine Learning.
“We’re very proud to bring ScotML back to Edinburgh for a second time, and to continue the amazing growth that we’ve seen with the event. The thriving Scottish tech scene has become home to some of the most innovative and exciting projects taking place in the UK right now, especially around AI and Data Science. We’re confident that events like ScotML are key a great way to stimulate this.”
MancML and ScotML have proven to be hugely popular additions to the Manchester and Scottish tech scenes respectively, as they offer tech companies unique opportunities to meet and present ideas to like-minded businesses.
This year’s ScotML event will takes place this Thursday (12th) at the Cirrus Logic offices at Edinburgh’s Quartermile. More information about this year’s event and how to register can be found here.
