Our Story

What is DIP?

Formerly known as the Data Intelligence Society of Concordia, DIP has one goal: bring ALL data-driven individuals *no matter their background* under one roof.

Through a diverse following and the freedom to play around with data, we want to foster an inclusive and fun learning environment for everyone interested in technology and data science. We offer multiple types of events throughout the year to cater to as many people and styles as possible! DataTalks (speaker series), Datathon (case competition), Techfest (NEW! a FUN data networking fair), Workshops, & The Innovative Society, are ALL the ways you can enhance your learning, show off your skills, or simply surround yourself with like-minded people.

1st Year Rep



The Innovative Society strives to create an environment that facilitates conversations about all things technology, focusing on Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. As these topics are relevant to most studies, we welcome and encourage all students from different backgrounds to join. Our Main goal for 2020 is to  set up common accounts in Kaggle and Github to facilitate learning and sharing code for all members, as well as complete one major startup project to pitch during a demo night with a D!P partner. The society invites business professionals to help mentor and speak to our team members about real-world applications pertaining to DI and AI, either during a weekly meetup, or by hosting a Lunch and Learn.
