LR8 in the Arts Complex at 3-5 Woodland Road
Data Science can be viewed as unifying all researchers who are interested in gaining information about the world from data. This event is the first in a series aiming to explore the different aspects of working with data, particularly at scale, and bridging the gaps across disciplines including, but not limited to: statistics, machine learning, algorithms, data mining, and the use and development of large-scale complex IT systems.
Attendance is encouraged for researchers wanting to improve their ability to work with Big Data, develop methodology or infrastructure for others, or raise a challenge to the data science community. An important aspect of this workshop series is to learn about what expertise is available in Bristol, and to find areas in which cross-discipline collaborations are possible. There is time over lunch to network, to discuss the ideas presented, and to identify how our own research is connected to advances in data science.
Introduction - Dan Lawson
