Three short talks will illustrate how data is transforming our university, across the Schools of Science and Engineering, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, and Humanities and Social Sciences.

Speakers:

  • Dr Ram Ramamoorthy (robotics and machine learning)
  • Professor James Loxley (text-mining Edinburgh’s literary heritage)
  • Professor Jon Oberlander (from medical informatics to data technology).

Professor Oberlander says:

“We will highlight the recent extraordinary growth in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Edinburgh anchored by Informatics - and give a heads-up on the University’s plans for Data Technology and for the Digital Arts. Then it’s over to alumni and friends to share experiences of new modes of industry-university engagement - and to meet old friends, and make new ones.”
