Agenda Highlights

Powerful, user-friendly tools are critical for successful implementation and to empower decision makers for their ongoing and more robust decision-making. Two tools are presented to demonstrate how operational research techniques can enhance predictive analytics by exploring alternative scenarios under future uncertainty and change. The first tool employs optimisation methods to find the profit optimal footprint for Retailers, taking into account how business flows around the network as it changes. The second tool uses simulation techniques to model the flow of patients in Emergency departments. It has been used at two Emergency departments to help understand the impact of reconfiguring the departments, changes to workforce rotas and changes to capacity levels.

The “Big Data” and “Data Science” rhetoric of recent years seems to focus mostly on collecting, storing and analysing existing data. Data which many seem to think they have “too much of” already. However, the greatest discoveries in both science and business rarely come from analysing things that are already there. True innovation starts with asking Big Questions. Only then does it become apparent which data is needed to find the answers we seek. In this session, we relive the true story of an epic voyage in search of data. A quest for knowledge that will take us around the globe and into the solar system. Along the way, we attempt to transmute lead into gold, use machine learning to optimise email marketing campaigns, experiment with sauerkraut, investigate a novel “Data Scientific” method for sentiment analysis, and discover a new continent. This ancient adventure brings new perspectives on the Big Data and Data Science challenges we face today. Come and see how learning from the past can help you solve the problems of the future.

The wide-ranging GDPR regulations to be implemented by all EU countries on 25 May 2018 will bring some unsettling new requirements for data scientists that use data considered personal in the EU – not just for “consumer” data but also for business-to-business data. This presentation focuses on five specific topics of interest: notification, permission for use, the right to be forgotten, discrimination and “pseudo-discrimination”, as well as anonymization. It will be illustrated with concrete examples built using open source software, so you can try a few of the ideas yourself.
