The International Society of Data Scientists is pleased to announce the selected individual for the title "The Most Influential Young Data Scientist of the Year 2019", Akshay Bahadur, from Symantec in India. Success only follows ones who make a true approach to get it. We wish Akshay all the best for his future and congratulate him for this achievement.  

The International Society of Data Scientists is calling for project submissions from young Data Scientists. Participants may be in the range from grades 7-12, undergraduate and graduate students. Submissions are reports for projects that have been pursued in courses, training, and camps. Projects may be team-based or individual-based. Participants should be able to provide evidence that the projects were supervised, or graded by their instructors.

The International Society of Data Scientists (ISODS) is pleased to announce the result of 2019 Nomination for Leaders in Data Science & AI.

In this talk, Dr. Kou implements the electric load prediction in the Bigquery ML cloud platform as well as compares its performance with the linear regression model in python scikit-learn. The talk is streamed on Youtube (9PM New York time, Jan 18, 2020). Dr. Wei Kou received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Science Engineering from the University of Connecticut in 2018. Her research interests include cloud-based machine learning, game theory, distributed optimization and the related application on power grids and energy networks.

Starting November 2019, The International Society of Data Scientists invites speakers to give talks in online seminars, in collaboration with DataAI@SG Data Science Facebook group, and Data Innovation Lab (IUH). The first talk was held live on Zoom. The topic is "The two cultures: Retrospects and prospects", by Dr. Son P. Nguyen, University of Economics and Law, VNU-HCM. Dr. Son P. Nguyen holds a Ph.D degree in Mathematics from Wayne State University.

During this conference week, we accept project submissions from students, in order to encourage learning Data Science in students at the university as well as high school levels. The best selected student project is "School Bus Routing for Optimization of Cost and Coverage" by Sachchit Kunichetty, from Fairfield Ludlowe High School, in Fairfield, CT, USA. Sachchit has developed a Java-based application to optimize school bus routing. The work was supervised by Mr. Robert Benjamin, and evaluated by an independent study board of Fairfield Ludlowe High School.

In the week of December 1, the Inaugural International Data Science & AI Conference started with keynote talks. We welcome keynotes speakers from academia & industry to share their knowlegde and experience to the Data Science * AI Community. More than 220 companies and individuals have registered for the conference.

The award event took place on 7/20 together with the AI/ML event by Axon, VEF Academy and DatAI@SG. Dr. Linh Nguyen, introduced activities of DataAI@SG and announced the result of the International Data Science Competition. Dr. Phu Vu, Dr. Loan Nguyen, Dr. Vinh Dang, and Dr. Triet Nguyen represented the competition committee.

We are very pleased to announce the final result of the Inaugural Data Science Competition. Teams from International University, Saigon University's Team, Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel's Team, and HCMUE won places from First, Second, Third, as well as Honorable Mention.

The Inaugural International Data Science Competition has just finished! The Competition Committee thanks all the teams and their advisors for participation. Twenty-seven teams across multiple universities have actively competed from March 15 to June 1. The final leaderboard ranking is as follows.
