This week, India’s startup events will be focussed on all things related to data and on fostering entrepreneurship. At a time when the GDPR is being implemented in Europe and tech companies find themselves in a new tussle with data privacy and security, data has indeed become the new oil of the modern world.
Not just social media networks, any tech or non-tech company handling data relating to EU citizens will have to follow the GDPR guidelines. In the wake of shock waves created by Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, and many more suspicious operations relating to data handling being reported, there’s been increasing emphasis on the need for ethical entrepreneurship.
This being said, regulations and aspirations must go hand in hand in order for startups to realise desired business goals.
There is much to look forward to in terms of the engagements these institutions have to offer this week.
Keeping up with our consistent efforts to bridge the gap between the Indian startup ecosystem, policymakers, and industry stalwarts, here are the three startup events that you should consider participating in this week.
The Data Science Congress is a confluence of data science, analytics, Big Data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, the blockchain, IoT, and cybersecurity. This event should be attended by people who believe in the power of data, who know that data can be turned into information, and information into insight.
