The Data Science Section of the Royal Statistical Society is the membership group representing data scientists in the UK. It was established in 2017 to address emerging topics that will impact the long-term success of data science as a profession.

Our organising committee includes Data Science leaders from organisations like the Alan Turing Institute, Unilever, AstraZeneca, the Office for National Statistics, Microsoft and The Economist

Our remit is to:

  • Promote good practice and clarify the skillset for professional data scientists
  • Promote the statistical aspects of data science
  • Support the pipeline and career development of data scientists and statisticians
  • Push forward the debate around opportunities and challenges posed by data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning
