On May 23rd, the first DataBeers took place in Copenhagen, featuring 7-minute informal “data story” talks by five data scientists from academia and industry. The event, co-organized by NERDS members Roberta Sinatra and Michael Szell, became a smashing success with over 120 participants and 400 units of free beer consumed, filling up the historic Byens Lys cinema in freetown Christiania. Michael Szell’s first talk on the data visualization project What the Street!? was particularly well received by the energized crowd. From anarchist commune now to high society in Monaco two weeks earlier, NERDS are relentlessly spreading their research all over the world.
DataBeers is a global not-for-profit initiative (currently in 31 cities), that brings data scientists and data enthusiasts from industry, government, academia and the arts to knowledge share. The DataBeers teams organise events and invite speakers to tell their experience with data: analysis, visualisations, applied data, data journalism etc., always in an informal and agile manner.
The Copenhagen edition is sponsored by SODAS @ KU and DTU Compute. We are always happy about sponsors, especially for beer – talk to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The next DataBeers Copenhagen is scheduled for Fall 2019. Follow us at @databeers_cph for updates. Stay tuned, and cheers! 🍻
NERDS member Roberta Sinatra has returned from Monte Carlo, where she presented her research in an inspiring keynote talk for the yearly Prix Monte-Carlo Femme de l’Année. The theme of this year’s edition of the accompanying Women For Women (W4W) conference was Arts & Science, to which Roberta’s recent research on the scientific quantification of success in art fit perfectly. The conference was held in a very special place: the headquarters of Monaco’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The talk and its consequent discussions were well-received by the mainly female audience, and by The Prix’ illustrious patrons such as Walgreens Boots Alliance COO Ornella Barbara or the reigning monarch of Monaco, Prince Albert II.
