Title:
AS18: Gaining the Battle-Winning Edge with Data Science Workshop

Author:

Mini Abstract:
Imagine watching a game of Laser Tag. What if you could capture a wealth of data from sensors attached to people, the equipment and across the environment? Could you use it to help you and your team fight smarter? And what greater insights might you have – about yourself, your team, your opponents, the kit, the battlespace - if that data was linked with other sets to create new information? Now imagine your fighters are members of the British Army, your venue is Salisbury Plain, and your battles are training soldiers to operate in combat zones. Dstl is working with the British Army to unlock the value of its data holdings. Sophisticated sensors on soldiers, vehicles and weapons help monitor and improve performance during Field Army training exercises. But how can this data be exploited more widely? What other questions might it help address? This workshop will explore methods through which we can explore and exploit big data for greater impact, and discuss how Dstl and MOD approached this challenge.
