The festival program was divided into two days. May 10 was devoted to the study of data science (DS) and machine learning (ML) applications in various fields. May 11 was a scientific day, filled with a discussion of current research and engineering topics, visits to workshops, and a discussion of the new community formats.

Our employees visited many sections. There were presented various stands (for example, Mail.Ru, that demonstrated a photo sending application). During the festival, a photo-report was conducted; and people who had been registered on the Web-site took the photo present automatically. Avito made the platform where you could play a snake with AI and other players. The merch was given for the participation and the win. Cian also gave presents for the task solutions. All this created an atmosphere for communication with representatives of different companies, as well as exchange of experience.
