Pivotal Labs London and the Government Predictive Analytics Network invites you to a new event, aiming to combine the knowledge and experience of Public and Private sector practitioners of Predictive Analytics and Data Science. We look forward to welcoming you. Abstracts and speaker bios are below.
Public Sector - Understanding prison violence – a data science journey
Reducing prison violence is a priority issue for the National Offender Management Service. Although prison violence has increased recently, the Agency are committed that this should not be the new norm. We are committed to using analysis and research to understand what causes prison violence and how it can be reduced. In the last two years, we have undertaken a significant programme of analytical work to support NOMS’ Violence Reduction Project. Over the same window, we have built our data science capacity and capability to tackle this difficult issue. David’s talk will set out NOMS’ data science journey – the techniques they have used and the challenges they have faced.
