Seattle, WA - 23 March 2022 – The Merchant Risk Council (MRC) is bringing together thought leaders in the data and analytics space for the Data Sciences Summit, a virtual event designed to bring attention to this increasingly important topic on 5 April 2022. 

“The importance of data can’t be overstated when it comes to payments or fraud prevention,” says Julie Fergerson, CEO of the MRC. “Almost everything we do is powered in some way by data, and effectively managing all that information is a critically important part of our business, even if isn’t discussed often enough. Our goal with this summit is to present some of the cutting-edge ideas and conversations that are happening in this space in an accessible, entertaining, and educational way.”

The virtual summit, sponsored by Adyen and powered by the MRC’s online events platform, will feature more than six hours of insights from industry-leading data scientists and knowledgeable subject matter experts on important topics like decision data bias, the latest in machine learning, the low code/no code movement, real-time model deployment, and more. 

“Our members have been asking for an event focused on data science,” says Julie. “We’re super excited to deliver. We have an exceptional lineup of topics and speakers, including some of the brightest minds in the industry. If you’re interested in data science, and if you work in eCommerce, you absolutely should be, you won’t want to miss it!”

Registration for the summit is open now, and registration is free for MRC members. Contact the MRC with any questions.
