Brought to you by The OR Society in association with the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), the Annual Analytics Summit brings together speakers and exhibitors from the very cutting edge of analytics to deliver a case study-filled day of tutorials and workshops for learning about how big data and analytics are shaping the future of organisational decision-making. 

Topics for this year include:

  • Explainable artificial intelligence (XAI) – how to respond to growing demand to build explainable models without compromising performance.

  • Analytics and data visualisation – giving a framework with tips and tricks for putting users at the heart of data visualisation.

  • Ethics and Fairness in AI – highlighting great opportunities between quantitative accuracy, ethics and fairness and how to manage this potential trade-off.

  • Deriving insights from diverse data sets – exploring a web-based dashboard which provides access to a range of tailored insights using a city-centre case study.

Case studies presented in the morning will be explored in afternoon workshops to give delegates the opportunity to find out details about particular techniques or methodologies used.
