President’s report, John Hall

Main speaker: Michael Brand - The Data Science Revolution, a User's Guide.

Our guest speaker for May is Michael Brand, whose career has been centred on data in all its forms. The topic of digital disruption through data analytics is nowadays continuously in the news. But what is data analytics? How is it done? What value is gained from it? And with all the terms thrown around – Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, Predictive Analytics – where does the hype end and reality begin? In this talk, Michael will make some order in the mess, clarifying both the technical realities of advanced analytics and its business realities, and will lay out a roadmap of how any organisation can make data part of its business strategy.

8:00 (about). Social break. Cafe format same as last month.
