Yandex at KDD 2019

July 31, 2019

We’re excited to continue our busy summer of data science conferences by traveling to Anchorage, Alaska next week for KDD 2019! From August 4-8, data scientists from around the world will convene at the premiere Knowledge Discovery and Data mining (KDD) event. Presentations and tutorials will cover the various real-world applications of data science, which we deliver through our intelligent products and services. Practical data science has been powering the Yandex ecosystem for well over a decade but we are continuously searching for opportunities to advance our technologies.

We look forward to sharing our research and learning more about others’ at this year’s KDD conference. Our team will host a hands-on tutorial on Yandex.Toloka, our crowdsourcing platform, as well as an oral paper presentation on the tech that powers Yandex.Weather. We look forward to seeing you at the Yandex sessions!
