The Alan Turing Institute is extending an invitation to join them and some of the country’s leading scientists - including government scientists - in their third series of flagship events – the Turing Lectures. These events are free to attend and offer fantastic networking opportunities, as well as informative talks by distinguished scientists from around the world.
The next Turing lecture is as follows:
Turing Lecture: Stats, Decision Making and Privacy – 5 December – with UK National Statistician, John Pullinger, and Distinguished Scientist at Microsoft Research, Cynthia Dwork.
In the latest event in the series on data science in the public realm, the UK’s National Statistician, John Pullinger, will explain how data is helping Government and others make better decisions, from the National Census and many other sources, firmly based on evidence. Reflecting the importance of data ethics and privacy to making data as freely available as possible, in the second lecture Microsoft Research’s Cynthia Dwork will discuss the technical challenges of privacy and how new research may help increase access to valuable data in a way that safeguards the privacy of data owners.
If you can’t make it in person, you can register to livestream, or subscribe to the YouTube channel where all recordings will be made available. To find out more about events at The Turing and how to register, please visit the website.
