SES Open: Harnessing FAIR Data

By | Events, Just Added, Recommended, The Data Revolution | No Comments
Open Science is a contemporary and relevant theme across the UK research landscape. This year we're hosting a series of exciting events that directly engage with the practice of opening up science. From opening up the discussion on  representation of women and people of diverse backgrounds in research, to providing a forum for debate on the opportunities and struggles in mining or storing data, we invite scientists, staff, students, policymakers, scholars and stakeholders in science and education to join us. Harnessing FAIR Data focused on researchers who employ or are seeking to use data in their work. FAIR is a set...

Data vs Dementia

By | Bioscience and medicine, Just Added, The Data Revolution | No Comments
Maxine Mackintosh on early intervention to prevent cognitive decline and the One HealthTech community. Maxine Mackintosh is a PhD student at University College London working at the intersection of data science and dementia. Her PhD involves mining medical records for new predictors for dementia. She is passionate about understanding how we might make better use of routinely collected data to improve our cognitive health. Alongside this, she is the co-founder of One HealthTech – a community which champions and supports underrepresented groups, particularly women, to be the future leaders in health innovation. Her professional work has led her to the...

In Computational Combat Against Microbial Resistance

By | Bioscience and medicine, Cities and supporting life, Popular | No Comments
Victoria Carr on gene sequencing, women in tech and getting out there. Victoria Carr is a Bioinformatics and Data Science PhD Researcher at King's College London. She is currently investigating antimicrobial resistance and developing a risk score method from sequenced metagenomes. She is the founder of Researc/hers Code, a community showcasing the talents of women and individuals of diverse backgrounds working on computational research. Previously, she was president for King's College London at the Innovation Forum. So, you work in computational genomics. Can you tell us about the field and your research? Computational genomics is using computer science to understand more...

Guest Post: A Vision of the Future

By | data mining event, Events, Just Added | No Comments
Susan Sun is a PhD student in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Storage and its Applications at the University of Southampton. Her interest is in solar PV and battery systems, and for what cases second-life electric vehicle batteries can truly deliver both financial and environmental benefits. On 14th June, Science and Engineering South held an event on Data Mining: Exploring the Ethical Dilemmas with the University of Southampton. I went because I really hate targeted ads, and yes, I'm one of those people in a moral panic about machine learning perpetuating existing inequalities. However, I‘d also like everyone's...

Improving Research Workflows by Enabling High-speed Data Transfers

By | Events, Just Added, The Data Revolution | No Comments
With the volume of data generated from research increasing rapidly and affecting a wider variety of fields and disciplines than ever before, the requirement for transferring large volumes of data is now widespread. One of the ways that institutions are aiming to satisfy this need is to reduce the network impediments that affect the end-to-end speed at which research data can be transferred between the lab, computational and storage facilities. The University of Southampton, as a member of the Science & Engineering South Consortium (SES) and in partnership with Jisc and Diamond Light Source, has been running a pilot project...

Powering Up Research: Data Fuelled Innovation

By | Bioscience and medicine, Events, Just Added, The Data Revolution | No Comments
Data Intensive Science is a rapidly emerging, cross disciplinary research challenge already traversing the fields of Materials Science, Bio-medical research, Computational Engineering and Digital Humanities (to name a few). With huge volumes and complex data at the heart of many research projects, advancing the methods used to analyse, manage, and interpret this data is key to facilitating both efficient and reliable science. The significance of the discipline has recently been recognised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in awarding £20 million to 6 new national supercomputing centres, including the Cambridge Centre for Data Driven Discovery. This event aims to bring...

Managing the Data Deluge: Roles and Responsibilities for Your Institution

By | | No Comments

LEARN cordially invites you to its end-of-Project Conference entitled ‘Managing the Data Deluge: roles and responsibilities for your institution ‘ which will be held on Friday 5th May 2017 at Senate House, London. The use and sharing of research data has the potential fundamentally to change the way research is undertaken and shared. Pervasive networks mean that researchers are able to collaborate and share not only their publications, but also the research data, which underpins them. The LEARN Conference is designed to encourage all stakeholders – researchers, research funders, publishers, research organisations and senior decision makers – to explore what…

The Data Dialogue: At War with Data

By | Events, News, Recommended | No Comments
Cyber security, open source intelligence, web science, bioinformatics and crime science…all modern and relevant terms in the UK research landscape, and all with one thing in common: Data. Why are researchers interested in accessing publicly available data? What are they doing with anonymised, confidential data? How can open data provide us with intelligence? How can data from one field of research be used in another? This Unique finale to The Data Dialogue, At War with Data, provided Early Career Researchers from a range of disciplines with the tools and knowledge to approach the subject of research data from a wider point of view....
