Launch of the DSI Seminar Series 2017
Data assimilation with finite element air pollution models
Presented by Dr David Fairbairn
Monday 27 March 2017
DSI Boardroom, South Kensington Campus
London Behaviour Analytics Meeting
Behaviour Analytics Lab - Data Science Institute
Venue: GDO Meeting Room
Date: TBC (SEE INVITATION ON DOODLE )
Scientists interested in behaviour are increasingly adopting automated imaging and quantitative analysis into their work. Regardless of the species, this entails solving related technical problems from hardware, to computer vision, and data visualisation as well as conceptual problems such as how to identify representations and features that capture the essence of behaviour without over simplifying. There are many groups in London working on behaviour across the full range of model organisms and humans but there is not currently a good way of brining them together. An informal workshop-style meeting at the DSI would be an excellent opportunity to share expertise, make new connections and, start collaborations.

Advances in Data Science will take place in Manchester, UK.
A two-day meeting to present recent developments in data science, with a focus on advanced analytics (machine learning, Bayesian statistics, scalable algorithms), privacy, visualisation, software and diverse applications. Speakers include leading data scientists from industry and academia (see programme).
Registration will open soon and there will be an opportunity to submit abstracts for consideration as short talk or poster presentations at the meeting.
Sponsored by University of Manchester Data Science Institute.

Imperial College will be holding this conference on the use of data science for cyber-security applications. These applications include deployment of statistical methodology, machine learning, and Big Data analytics for network modelling, anomaly detection, forensics, risk management, and more. Organised by Niall Adams and Nick Heard from Imperial and sponsored by the DSI, this conference aims to showcase cutting-edge research in statistical cyber-security in academia, business and government.
