The First International Conference on Frontiers and Advances in Data Science and Analytics (FADS) will bring together scientists, professionals and industry practitioners to share knowledge and the latest developments in data science and analytics.

Modern technologies are constantly changing and reshaping the way we interact with the world and each other. The speed at which individuals, businesses, organisations and governments are generating data is increasing at an unprecedented rate.
