The Data Science workshops will be free for everyone to attend and will be conducted as a hybrid workshop, where participants can choose to attend virtually or attend the in-person sessions at Sepakat Room 4, International Convention Center.
The beginner-friendly workshops will provide a primer to data science and participants will learn how to collect, process and analyse data, said the organisations in a statement.
During the one-day event, participants will also have the opportunity to network and consult with local data science and Artificial Intelligence experts from BSP who are responsible for driving BSP’s digital transformation journey.
Tinkering stations, where participants can come, pitch and work on their own projects while getting advice from data science experts, will also be available during the workshop.
BSP Senior Data Scientist Ahmad Musaddiq Mohammad in a statement said that they encourage budding data scientists or those who are simply curious about data science to sign up for the free workshop, talk to them and ask questions.
“Ultimately, we hope that this one-day workshop can support in empowering our youth to upskill and become future-ready while providing an open and enriching space for them to share ideas and learn together. Everyone can register and participate. Students, professionals, entrepreneurs etc,” he said.
The DigiTech week, which is part of the Brunei MYCE, will take place from June 8-11, 2022. Brunei MYCE 2022 is a five-week event that will feature thematic exhibitions, conferences, bringing experts and business leaders from Brunei Darussalam and all over the world to address various concerns pertaining to the five fields: Islamic, Digital Technology, Energy, Climate Change and Economy.
The digital revolution alters business and societal landscape, and we must be agile and future-ready in the drive towards preparing Brunei Darussalam as a Smart Nation and maximising its digital economy potential, they said in a statement.
“With rapid changes in technology and consumer expectations, it is important to continuously upgrade our skills aside from gaining knowledge and academic qualifications,” they added.
This workshop is a proactive approach to raise more awareness on the benefits of digital innovation and to produce youth that are digital and future-ready to bring Brunei Darussalam towards its goal of becoming a Smart Nation.
