Seven reasons why you can't miss DATAx Singapore

DATAx reveals the top reasons why you need to be at the upcoming DATAx Singapore festival


It is 2019 and the importance of AI, robotics and analytics in enterprise has never been more prominent. At the same time, the emerging markets of the world are becoming increasingly more integral to the success of any global company's strategy.

In recognition of this, we have launched DATAx Singapore, a four-stage, data extravaganza which will look into the many ways AI and machine learning are revolutionizing organizations today, with some of the world's most influential and innovative professionals and brands in attendance.

Also building on the success of DATAx New York, DATAx Singapore will be building its own Advisory Board of data experts comprised of selected delegates and senior executives.

Women in AI panel

At this year's DATAx Singapore, we wanted to shine a brighter light on the efforts and contributions of women to the AI and data. Only 2% of all US venture funding goes to women, a figure considerably worse in the Southeast Asia region.

Our Women in AI panel will be an opportunity for women from different corners of the data space to share their stories in the hope that it will inspire and equip other women with the tools they need to excel in the tech space.


Singapore is one of the most dynamic tech hubs in the world. That is why this year, we will be holding DATAx Singapore at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre:
