Data Study Groups Workshop
A week-long event bringing together researchers and industry to work
on real data science problems posed by industry. Six companies will present a real world problem to an audience ranging from faculty members to postgraduate students, who then split into groups to work on and start designing solutions. At the end of the week a report is written summarising the results that have been obtained.
This is funded through the Lloyds Register Foundation Programme for Data-Centric Engineering.
Companies involved and their respective projects:
- Siemens – Determining the Fuel Gas Calorific Value for an Industrial Gas Turbine
- Airbus – Growth of route networks in the Air Transport System
- Tata – Predicting steel quality
- Shell’s Statistics & Chemometrics group – Predicting oil/water flow through pipelines using acoustic signals
- Syngenta – Data-driven benchmarking for the agricultural industry in developed and developing countries
- National Grid – Real-time balancing of electricity transmission and distribution networks
Further details available on request
Monday: 9:00 am – 1:00pm Introductions to the Projects / 1:00 pm Group assignment and open group work
Tuesday-Thursday: Open group work
Friday: 10:00 am – 1:00 pm Presentation of results from each group
Invitation to participate
To participate, researchers with a background in data science are invited to apply using the form below. Those chosen will work in groups on the different industry problems. This is an exciting opportunity to tackle real world challenges using industry datasets. It lets you put knowledge into practise, learn new skills, and interact with a broad range of researchers and industry representatives at the Alan Turing Institute. This is a great opportunity 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.
Travel will be reimbursed and accommodation and meals provided.
The deadline for applications to join has passed. If you are interested in the event or in others like it please contact Darren Grey directly.
