@tgb417, @ben_p, @Marlan… These names might sound familiar if you’ve been around the Dataiku Community?

They’re our top contributors, helping users by answering questions in the Discussions, sharing their knowledge in User Groups and online events, and giving us feedback to grow the experience.

We’re delighted to recognize them today with a dedicated ambassador program, the Dataiku Neurons!

Why the Neurons?

The objective of the program is to acknowledge their invaluable contribution to the community, and reward them with unique experiences.

We’ll be providing them with more opportunities to develop and share their expertise in Dataiku DSS and data science, including special training and content on topics of interest, exclusive events, close access to Dataiku teams such as our Product team, and some other fun surprises!
