Announcing plans for our first Boston analytics conference

The organization is actively seeking input from Boston-area professionals and community groups

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, including AI, machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and neural networks.

“With the rapid growth of MinneAnalytics over the past five years, it’s time to bring our conference energy and success to another great center of data and analytics in the U.S.,” said Dan Atkins, executive director and cofounder of MinneAnalytics. He noted some key connections between Minneapolis and Boston, including the Optum Labs joint venture with Mayo Clinic, and the fact that many Minnesota-based companies have operations in Boston.

“Expanding our geographical reach also makes sense as so many professionals that have come into our community—as attendees or speakers at our Minneapolis events—are actually based in the Northeast,” said Sean Larson, a MinneAnalytics cofounder. “So, now we come to them.”

The conference date and venue have not been finalized, and we are actively seeking input from Boston-area professionals and community groups. We hope to partner with local organizations that see the value in creating accessible and engaging data science events that benefit the analytics community overall.

Members, please help us spread the word by sharing this news with your connections and colleagues on the East Coast. Analytics professionals and groups in the Boston area are encouraged to get involved by contacting the conference organizers at
