Decision Making in the Face of Uncertainty

Decision making in the face of uncertainty is one of the hardest things to do. In this pre-compiler session, we'll borrow methods from machine learning, statistics, trading and computer science to compose a methodology which will allow you to make the best decision possible given the evidence you have to hand, and to also hedge against you being wrong. Whether you're a "techie" or a "civilian" everyone can benefit from learning this important methodology

A Day In The Life of A Data Scientist

In this hour long session I'll walk you through a typical day in the life of a data scientist (me). We'll look at a real world question and how I go about working out the answer.

Fermi Problems - Why Devs Hate Them But Data Scientists Love Them

You all know what a Fermi Problem is, even if - as a dev - you didn't know that was what they are called. They are those annoying questions you get asked at interview, you know, the ones that go "So, can you tell me how many filling stations there are in the UK?". The ones where you think, "What a pointless question". Well, the fact is - to a data scientist - they are extremely important in predictive analytics and in this session, we'll lift the lid on Fermi Problems and I'll show you exactly where, and why, they are useful.


Think your democracy is safe? Better think again. In this session I'll demonstrate the techniques that the 'black hat data scientists' use to get the result they want from any election or referenda. In this entertaining talk, I'll demonstrate techniques, both at the macro level - how to attack an election systemically - and at the micro level - how I can manipulate individuals to do exactly as I want them to do.

Sports Betting: How I made £500 During Royal Ascot And What That Can Teach You About ML

By now most of us have a rough idea of what ML is all about, right? Good, but what do we do when ML, alone, just doesn't cut it, when there's either too many variables, or their starting values are non deterministic? Well that's a question we'll answer in this talk - we'll also have some fun as we use what we learn to try to predict the winner of a horse race run during the talk.
