Posted: 6th October 2022

Taking place on the 3rd and 4th of November at the EICC in Edinburgh, The Data Lab Innovation Centre’s Data Summit 2022 is going to be bigger, more inspiring, and more cutting-edge than ever before. We’re welcoming quantum computing professors, nanotechnologists, entrepreneurs, data ethicists, philosophers, musicians and artists, and so many more, to talk on the overarching theme of ‘hope’ – focusing on how data and AI can be used to create a better world and society.

We’ll be welcoming incredible speakers such as Professor Hannah Fry, Professor Jim Al-Khalili, and technology ethicist Stephanie Hare, as well as keynotes from NASA’s Chief Science Data Officer Kevin Murphy and Dr Giovanna Giardino from the James Webb Space Telescope team. In our skills and tech streams we also have speakers and panels on building effective data teams, automation and practical AI, as well as using data to help vulnerable people.

The Data Lab would like to offer companies in the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce network 10% off the current ticket price. To secure this discounted price, contact the Chamber team at: For ticket bundle deals, please contact
