PASADENA, Calif., June 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Association of Research Method and Data Science (RMDS) Lab today announced its industry-leading AI and data science annual conference - "IM DATA 2020" - will take on an entirely new online format on Nov. 2(nd) and 3(rd), packed with content for attendees, speakers, partners, sponsors, and press alike. The online event will be an opportunity for thousands of researchers, practitioners, professionals and executives from all over the world to get access to innovative and impactful data science developments as well as skills for application.

This multi-track conference will focus on three main areas: 1) Innovative Methods with Data Science and AI; 2) Data and AI for COVID-19 and Healthcare; 3) AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning. The conference will be led by Dr. Alex Liu, founder of RMDS Lab and IBM's former chief data scientist. He says, "The next decade will be increasingly dominated by the impact of data science and automation, while facing great challenges. Without a circulative and evolved ecosystem, society will be unable to unlock the greatest benefits of AI, and this is why RMDS Lab and IM DATA exist."
