IAS Research Workshop: Data science for the real world (workshop 2)

26 June 2015, 9.30 AM - 26 June 2015, 1.30 PM

LR1 in the Arts Complex at 3-5 Woodland Road

This event is the second 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 - Patrick Rubin-Delanchy
    William Oxbury - Mathematical questions in network data analysis

    Gib Hemani - Dissecting the phenomic architecture of complex traits
    Dan Lawson - What can I do with all this data? Scaling
comparison-based analysis to massive scales using decision theory
