About the event

Applications for this Data Study Group are now closed.

Opportunities for graduate students, postdocs, and academic staff 

Date: 22-26 May 2017

The Institute organises and promotes regular collaboration with industry partners in order to explore and achieve significant data science application to real world challenges.

You can register your contact details if you are interested in being contacted for future Data Study Groups. You may also wish to register for the Turing monthly newsletter to be informed about future events and activities.

Organisers: Arieze Goyea, Nicolas Guernion, Julian Manser and Sebastian Vollmer.

Working in collaboration with organisations such as the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), HSBC, Siemens and Thomson Reuters researchers focus on subjects such as:

  • HSBC: Synthetic data generators for banking applications
  • Dstl: Cyber Data Science - What/Who/How of a Cyber Attack
  • Dstl: Urban Analytics - Machine Learning for Location Prediction; Where Should We Look First?
  • Siemens: Reducing Air Pollution through Improved Traffic Control.
  • Samsung: Clustering of mobile game users and prediction of cluster transition.
  • Thomson Reuters: Predictive graph analytics for investment portfolio management

Please note that places for the data study group are limited.

Are you interested in industrial collaborations? Do you want to apply your skills to real world problems from leading companies? Do you want to get involved with the Alan Turing Institute? Then join us for the Turing Institute’s Data Study Group Workshop at the Alan Turing Institute in London.

  What is the Data Study Group? The Data Study Group brings together researchers and industry to work on data science challenges posed by top companies.  Up to six different organisations will each present a different real world data challenge of their choice. You will choose which challenge is of interest to you, working collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams to address the task at hand. Over an intensive five days you will use all your skills to explore the challenge and design solutions, culminating in a presentation and report. Last December we ran a very successful interdisciplinary Data Study Group which focused on data centric engineering.   What’s in it for you?

  • You will gain experience in working with real world problems.
  • You will have an opportunity to put your knowledge into practice, to broaden your horizons and to work beyond your individual field of research.
  • It is a great opportunity to network with the industry and fellow academics, and a chance to get involved in some of the earliest industry collaborations taking place at the newly formed Alan Turing Institute.
  • Everyone involved will be exposed to diverse industrial companies beyond the more mainstream data science sectors with serious data science problems.

  The Institute will cover travel and accommodation expenses, and provide food and drink throughout the week. If you are interested in participating, please fill in the following form. For more information please contact [email protected]
