Data Natives, Europe'S Biggest Data Science And Ai Conference, Makes Its Big On-Site Comeback In Berlin

Data Natives’s mission is to connect data experts, inspire them, and let people become part of the equation again.

The story of Data Natives began in 2015 when Greek entrepreneur Elena Poughia found her purpose in Berlin: to create a place to go for the European Data Science Community. As a data enthusiast herself, she believes in leveraging data to make our world a better place. During the past few years, she established and shaped a unique conference concept: Data Natives became an annual 3-day data experts festival with keynote speakers, panels, networking concepts, startup pitches, and an epic Berlin party finale. On its growth journey, the Data Natives team successfully onboarded the important players needed to build a future society with good use of Data and AI: corporations, science, academia, politics, media, the design industry, and the startup community. It also endeavoured to bridge the gaps between corporations and startups, matching data scientists and AI experts with companies, and making an impact through Data Design Thinking and Data Visualisation.

The Data Natives community is diverse, but united by a shared purpose: to contribute to building a sustainable future with the help of data and machine learning.
