"Doing complex things the right way means visual programming for data science: It provides the right level of abstraction to focus on modeling your data process and also enables transparency and governance,” said Michael Berthold, as he opened KNIME Spring Data Talks on March 24, 2021.
On that day, over 2000 data scientists, business leaders, and data science enthusiasts signed up to meet online for an engaging afternoon to discuss data science in action at the first KNIME Spring Data Talks. This format, which is shorter and more suitable for online, is the replacement for our Spring and Fall Summits (previously held in Berlin and Austin respectively) - at least until we can meet again in person! Besides these two main events, this format comes in more regional and topical editions throughout the year.
The speakers presented applications of KNIME in their organizations across marketing, banking, drug research, and more. Their use cases included orchestrating application building with multiple technologies through to advanced MLOps for many models. One of the highlights for us was the positive response to the interactive breakout sessions. These offered deep dives into topics such as AI operations management, process mining, and cheminformatics.
