Analytics India Magazine brings you the annual list of the top data scientists in India, for the fourth year in a row. We have been identifying the ingenious minds in the world of data science and analytics who are also driving the innovations across various industries in India. From building analytics team to bringing newer processes in the working, the data scientists listed here have been instrumental in changing the face of the organisation. We have considered data scientists working with an organisation or independently, irrespective of size and nature of work. Here's the list of top 10 data scientists, to draw some inspiration and motivation from.
AI Singapore (AISG) was launched in June 2017 as an integrated, impact-driven, research and innovation program in artificial intelligence (AI) for the entire country. As a national initiative, AISG brings together the strength of Singaporean research bodies in Singapore's Autonomous Universities (AUs) and research institutes, together with the vibrant ecosystem of AI start-ups and companies developing AI products, to perform use-inspired research, create innovative AI solution, and develop the talent to power Singapore's AI efforts. To achieve Singapore's national mission, AISG's activities are anchored around four key pillars: An organization can propose a problem statement where no commercial-off-the-shelf AI solution exists, but can potentially be solved through AISG's ecosystem of researchers and research IPs within nine to 18 months. AISG will assemble a team of AI researchers and engineers from Singapore's research and development ecosystem to work on an organization's problem statement. Through a collaborative process, a company's existing technical manpower will work alongside a team of AI researchers and engineering assembled by AISG to develop AI solutions while helping the company build up its internal AI capabilities.
A new research center is to be established in India to undertake foundational research in many areas of data science and artificial intelligence (AI) applicable in the Indian context, and create societal impact through multidisciplinary interactions with government, academic, research and industrial collaborators. Its activity will include research projects, knowledge management and dissemination, developing prototypes, outreach projects, and setting up collaborative facilities and laboratories among others. The objective is to advance scientific innovation for societal benefit. Several technologies currently require large datasets to improve their accuracy and to adapt these technologies for the Indian context. There are basic issues in the way data is collected and shared; these need to be solved in a collective and open-sourced manner.
Amsterdam, Netherlands/Stuttgart, Germany – Artificial intelligence is poised to fundamentally change the world: in the future, machines will be capable of autonomously learning from experience and acting on this basis. The foundation for this is deep learning. In the future, the University of Amsterdam and Bosch will cooperate closely in this field. To this end, the two partners have announced a research alliance in Amsterdam. Known as Delta Lab ("Deep Learning Technologies Amsterdam"), the alliance aims to promote regular professional exchange and knowledge transfer.
The Precision Medicine World Conference will be one of the most exciting conferences focused on AI in healthcare in 2018. CEOs of cutting edge companies from around the world will come together to discuss how they are using techniques such as computer vision, deep learning and machine learning to make big advances in medicine from drug discovery to patient diagnosis and treatment. The program will traverse innovative technologies and clinical case studies that enable the translation of precision medicine into direct improvements in health care. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in Precision Medicine and cutting-edge new strategies that are changing how patients are treated.
