The Data Farm

Event date: 5th March 2015

Like Hansel and Gretel’s breadcrumbs into the forest, we leave a trail of data-crumbs wherever we go: social networks, mobile phones, hospital visits, credit cards and loyalty cards. Our every move is being watched! The data-crumbs are seeds of information but what results from them… is it a jungle with dangers lurking or a productive farmyard? And if our data is being farmed, where does all the produce go? This fascinating lecture was presented by Neil Lawrence, Professor of Machine Learning at the University of Sheffield.
