The annual Escape conference once again brings the future of data science and sports analytics to Chicago.
Join us on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 as we welcome industry experts, solution providers, students, and faculty to Robert Morris University’s upgraded campus in the heart of downtown Chicago for this part exposition, part data boot camp.
The Escape will feature hands-on demonstrations, keynote speakers, open forums and case studies that showcase the latest storage, processing, data mining, visualization, cloud computing, and predictive modeling technologies. The Escape offers an excellent forum for networking and acquisition of new skills that bridge the gap between university curricula and real-world skills demanded by industry.
Inspired by faculty from local universities, the Escape conference offers a one-of-a-kind, learning-by-doing opportunity that is co-hosted by industry leaders such as Cloudera, Salesforce, Microsoft, and Tableau. Space is limited. Registration open!
