|4 June 2019||13:00||This IDSAI research theme, led by Professor Sabina Leonelli, addresses the social embedding of data across different settings, from business to policy and government, from biology to health and climate change, and the implications of such embedding brings both for the governance and regulation of data flows and for the technical management and use of data and related analytic tools. Responsible data management, the role of values in algorithms and questions of data ethics are key to this theme. Rather than considering these issues in isolation, we study their role within real-world challenges for - and both current and future applications of - data science and artificial intelligence.
All colleagues whose research is concerned with the theme are invited to join this workshop on 4th June to discuss the theme and future research in this area at the University. There will be a budget for the theme and funding opportunities for seed projects and Turing Institute connections.. Full details|| Add event|

|1 - 3 May 2019||9:00||Clinical trials are moving earlier to intervene before the onset of dementia itself. As the amount of data that we have available to us increases rapidly, it is becoming vital to innovate in order to make sense of it and gain new insights.
At the Exeter Datathon, you will work with others in the DPUK Data Portal. You will focus on predicting dementia risk; conversion from mild cognitive impairment to dementia; and the potential of transfer learning to facilitate predictions between different datasets.. Full details|| Add event|
|4 April 2019||8:30||In many real-world problems, several conflicting criteria need to be optimized simultaneously. Therefore, it is crucial to properly structure and solve the problem with relevant tools for supporting a decision maker. The purpose of the workshop is to provide knowledge and basic concepts, an overview of different methods and tools in solving multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) problems. MCDM methods and tools have been found to be useful in several such applications e.g. health care, education, environment, transportation, business, and production. Full details|| Add event|
