The IBM Data Science Community provides a space for data scientists worldwide to discuss all things data science in a free forum.

You can join this community for free (there are no requirements!) and start participating in a discussion forum. The forum includes different categories to organize discussions, such as:

  • Decision Optimization
  • SPSS Statistics
  • Global Data Science Forum
  • Watson Studio
  • Data and AI Learning Group
  • SPSS Modeler

As you can see, there are several categories for you to enjoy lively discussions about data science. The IBM Data Science Community allows members to find fellow peers to exchange advice and bounce off ideas.

Additionally, you can read the community's blogs and explore the resources library. You will find not only "how-to" posts but also slideshows, spreadsheets, documents, templates, and videos.

Lastly, make sure to check the upcoming events. The community hosts webinars, talks with experts, seminars, and more casual meetups.
