Data Bites - Evening Talks

Data BitesInterested in Big Data and how it can drive technological innovation? Heard a lot about Big Data but not sure what it is, what is actually being done with it and why it matters? If so, head to the Data Bites  talks from leading specialists in the field. Discover some of the exciting things being done in Big Data and their practical applications for using it.

How does it work? It's simple: just come along and we provide an interesting talk with the best in the business. Data Bites is a great opportunity to network and get your questions answered by the experts.  For this term Data Bites has been moved to the evening but still feel free to bring your sandwiches.

This series of talks by leading researchers and practitioners is organised by the City Enterprise team and City’s Research Centre for Machine Learning in the Department of Computer Science. The talks have been running since 2014. It is designed to give students of Data Science and others access to first-hand information and experiences from industrial and other organisations, including well known names like Amazon, Thomson Reuters and the Home Office as well as smaller start-ups and consultancies. They all present their activities in the exciting field of data often with potential opportunities for placements and jobs.

If you would like to present your work and organisation, please get in touch with either Dr Tillman Weyde, Dr Aidan Slingsby or Dr Alex Galkin
