The Scotsman - - Busi­ness - By EMMA NEW­LANDS

Ed­in­burgh-based IT re­cruit­ment firm Cath­cart As­so­ciates has an­nounced the re­turn of an event it be­lieves will help ac­cel­er­ate the Scot­tish tech scene.

The firm, which also has of­fices in Eng­land and Thai­land, said that fol­low­ing the suc­cess of last year’s inau­gu­ral Scot­land Ma­chine Learn­ing con­fer­ence in Ed­in­burgh, Scotml will take place this Thurs­day at Quar­ter­mile.

Cath­cart said at­ten­dees will be able to meet top fig­ures from the data science, ma­chine learn­ing and AI sec­tors in a re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment. Guest speak­ers in­clude Boris Mitro­vic, se­nior data sci­en­tist at Mu­dano; Elias Mistler, data sci­en­tist at Pre­vise; and Dick Wall, BI so­lu­tions ar­chi­tect at Trust­mar­que So­lu­tions.

Sam Wa­son, di­rec­tor at Cath­cart, said: “The thriv­ing Scot­tish tech scene has be­come home to some of the most in­no­va­tive and ex­cit­ing projects tak­ing place in the UK right now, es­pe­cially around AI and data science. We’re con­fi­dent that events like Scotml are key a great way to stim­u­late this.”
