ASEAN Data Science Explorers (DSE) 2023 Regional Finals 

24 October 2023, Jakarta, Indonesia 



Three decades after ASEAN was established, ASEAN leaders recognised that: there remained inadequate shared prosperity, ASEAN awareness and contact among the people of ASEAN. It was of this concern that ASEAN leaders established ASEAN Foundation in Jakarta, Indonesia, at ASEAN’s 30th Anniversary Summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 15 December 1997. The ASEAN Foundation is an organisation from and for the people of ASEAN. The Foundation exists because of one vision: to build a cohesive and prosperous ASEAN Community. As an ASEAN body, the Foundation is tasked to support ASEAN mainly in promoting awareness, identity, interaction and development of the people of ASEAN. For more information, visit: 

The ASEAN Foundation in partnership with SAP will organise the 7th ASEAN Data Science Explorers Regional Finals 2023 in ASEAN Hall, ASEAN Secretariat Heritage Building on 24 October 2023.

By the end of the competition, three winning teams will be awarded regional champions.
