MinneAnalytics recently announced that we are organizing our first East Coast conference in Boston, Mass. The event is being planned for August 2018 and will feature a wide variety of expert speakers on the latest topics in data science and analytics.
The sport analytics community was out in full force last Friday for our second SportCon. More than 1,300 registered or joined the waitlist for the Feb. 2 event at Optum in Eden Prairie, featuring more than 70 top experts from pro sports, academia and tech. Speakers included representatives from many of our local pro sports teams, including the Minnesota Twins, United FC, Vikings and Wild.
The investment will fund scholarships and data science education events benefiting students in Minnesota and beyond, as well as increase awareness of the need for talent in the industry.
