The 2nd Ghana Data Summit 2020 (dubbed IndabaX Ghana) is organized by the Data Science Network (a non-profit organization) and Wave-2 Analytics Ltd., a Ghanaian-based analytics startup in partnership with Deep Learning Indaba.
Ghana is undergoing a “Data Science” transformation with hundreds of activities happening nationwide. Those who are new to data science are asking, “how do I get started?” Businesses and governments are asking “how do I deploy Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to create value?” Also, schools are grappling with how to incorporate Data Science into their curriculum. The IndabaX Ghana 2020 aims to create an inclusive platform where everyone – students, professors, researchers, businesses, start-ups, and leaders – can connect and enhance capacity in data science and analytics (including data mining, machine learning, and artificial intelligence).
