Artificial intelligence for data analytics (AIDA)

Call for applications to participate in the London based workshop.

The goal of the Artificial Intelligence for Data Analytics (AIDA) project at the Alan Turing Institute is to develop methods and tools to guide a data analyst through a semi-automated process of acquiring, preparing, integrating, transforming, cleaning and understanding data for analysis. The key insight is that every task in the data science process is a potential application area for artificial intelligence. Further information

The workshop will aim to:

* Inform the Turing community and beyond about the work being done in AIDA, and obtain feedback on the emerging project vision
* Provide researchers in the Turing and beyond with opportunities for involvement with AIDA research
* Expose the AIDA project to relevant work in related areas

We are making a limited number of places available in the workshop via this open call. If you would like to participate, please complete the form here outlining:

(a) Your role (e.g. Research Student, Working Data Scientist, Academic Researcher etc), and
(b) Explain your interest in the workshop, and why you believe you should be selected (maximum 1000 characters). Reasons could include e.g. you are a working data scientist who wishes to share experiences of data wrangling challenges for particular types of data, or an Academic Researcher who has developed methods to tackle a particular problem.

Unfortunately we do not have funds to support travel and subsistence to the event, but we will be able to fund attendance at the workshop dinner on the evening of March 20th for those applicants who are selected.
