We are committed to making data science accessible to everyone and every industry through education, civic enterprises, strategic connections, and quality programming that is innovative, festive, and nontraditional.
DSC seeks to build a robust community of thought leaders through the philosophy that group creation is essential for change and innovation. DSC is the largest data science organization in the southeastern United States, and serves as the parent organization to Artificial Intelligence ATL (AIATL) and Data Science ATL (DSATL).
Data Science Connect, or DSC, was founded in 2012 as Data Science ATL—a community of practitioners, thought leaders, academics, and students looking for high quality, highly technical content and connection. Since then, we've grown to become the largest data science organization in the southeast, regularly hosting some of the most well-attended data science events in the world.
These years have taught us that there is strength in numbers, and that magical things can happen when we are connected. We believe that the impact of data science is multiplied when the right people, networks and resources are connected.
