Mission Statement:
By establishing a data science specific Special Interest Group (SIG) we will be promoting a  growing field and technology application within our industry. Data science is a disruptive technological approach and has grown into a key tool for many geoscience workflows. Every digitalization roadmap includes machine learning and data sccience, and this data science SIG hopes to capture a portion of that executive attention. At the Quantico and University of Houston Data Science Institute (UH DSI) sponsored data science SIG, we will aim to highlight the growing importance of data science in our industry and showcase the innovative solutions emerging from this space in 2020.
