SODA Social is a networking event that brings together some of the brightest digital technology enthusiasts looking to socialise, expand their knowledge and have a jolly old time! Over the course of 2017 we will be covering a broad spectrum of current and future digital trends and current affairs.
What an exceptional event our SODA Social turned out to be at Shoreditch Platform. On this occasion, we talked around combating challenges in Machine Learning and AI. Our speakers included Andreas Koukorinis from Strategem, Kostas Perifanos from Argos and Stefan Boronea from Proportunity. As always, our event was free plus we provided refreshments and nibbles. Thank you to our attendees and we look forward to seeing you at the next SODA Social!
