With this hackathon we are challenging data scientists, students, programmers or visualisation experts to help us come up with new, interesting and different, interpretations of two existing datasets that we have available within the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science (LRCFS). There will be pizza!
This training course aims to bring the ideas and benefits of test-driven development to the arena of data analysis, augmenting and adapting those ideas as appropriate. We will introduce attendees to testing data at all stages of processing and the data processes themselves.

This is data done differently. Rethink what you thought you knew about data by exploring how it’s used in marketing. The data driven marketing industry is evolving at lightning speed and it needs talented people to think differently and push boundaries to produce extraordinary things.
How has the concept of value changed in today’s interconnected world? Are value chains still relevant? Do organisations really understand where value lies for them? Where is the value for the customer and does that tie in with their values?
At the start of 2011, the World Economic Forum declared personal data to be a new asset class. In the eight years since, the concept has swept through the business world, driving investment into data and analytics, forging the expanding sector we now know. What has yet to be settled, however, is exactly how data should be valued in a true economic sense.

Is automated AI/ML good for society? Join us in our new Merkle Edinburgh office where we will be bringing together the CEO from Data Lab, two Senior Technical Evangelists from AWS and Tableau and a few senior data scientists from Microsoft, MBN and Merkle to debate one of the most pressing issues in data! This event will be an evening bringing together some most influential people in data and unpacking how AI/ML is affecting the direction of our future! We encourage anyone with an interest in the topic to come along.
The event will take place at InSpace . The target audience is everyone. Anyone interested in learning more about MyData, taking more control over their data and thinking about the data ecosystems their data is currently used in. The maximum size of the event would be 60 people.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a broad area: it covers reasoning, planning, knowledge representation, sensory perception, language understanding, machine learning, optimisation and other related areas, and has been approached in a variety of ways, ranging from biologically inspired ideas (including neural networks), to logic (of various sorts), to emulation of experts.
The aim of the workshop is to introduce some basic concepts of computer vision using OpenCV, Python and deep learning.
With LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® we build, we share, we learn. Building Ideas With Data will explore how we can think creatively with data to tell stories with it
An increasing volume of data is becoming available in biomedicine and healthcare, from genomic data, to electronic patient records and data collected by wearable devices. Recent advances in data science allow us to harness the power of such data, leading to precision medicine, AI diagnostics, data-driven drug discovery and disease understanding, among others.
Our ambition for Ayrshire is to enable its people, businesses and communities to have the skills to take advantage of the potential of digital technologies.

Scotland’s New Industrial Centre for AI Research in Digital Diagnostics: Vision & Opportunities in Glasgow
The Industrial Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research in Digital Diagnostics, known as iCAIRD, brings together a pan-Scotland consortium of 13 partners from across academia, the NHS, and industry.
The aim of the competition is to provide an entry point for young people to become excited about analyzing, interrogating, and presenting data, meanwhile making them aware of how use data securely, ensuring its veracity and the potential careers this could lead to. Linking the project to people working in the sector will engage the industry and inspire those children and young people involved.
