Technology Partnering Event: Big Data - Business Analytics

From the UK Innovation Forum:

Wed 10 Apr 2013 - Tech City - Google Campus, London


One more week to register!


Our keynote speaker is Professor Paul Boyle, of the Economic and Social Research Council, who will be talking about the findings of the Administrative Data Taskforce and the implications for business and academia.


The ability of software and the hardware that supports it to process high volume, high velocity and high variability data is allowing unprecedented levels of customisation of products and services. This is of great interest to large corporations – and small – focused on making the most of their relationships with their customers and a fascinating industry is growing up to support this activity.


This event provides an opportunity for large and small companies to hear about new and potentially highly beneficial processes and techniques from both academia and industry. Complementing the technology pitches will be talks from industry on current needs and wants. The event aims to facilitate information exchange via these presentations followed by an afternoon of partnering discussions where companies can discuss directly with technology providers how the technology might be used in support of new product development.


Industry speakers will talk about their work and current business challenges, needs or wants, including:


Mr Rakesh Harji, of Blue Yonder, who are sponsoring the event

Giles Pavey, Chief Data Scientist of Dunnhumby

Daniel Hulme, CEO of Satalia

Technology presentations include:


Philip Treleaven, Director of the Financial Computing Centre at UCL

CERN/STFC CollSpotting (Andrew Grant,  STFC)

Analytics for digital footprint and lifelog Big Data (George Roussos,  Birkbeck)

A collaborative Big Data project that includes the Nottingham Geospatial Institute and the Nottingham Business School (Stephen Fuller, Nottingham GRACE)

Real-time decision making with big data (Plamen Angelov, Lancaster University)

Beyond computational thinking for business data analytics: Narrative (Fionn Murtagh and Adam Ganz, Royal Holloway, University of London)
