They don't call it a technological hub for nothing.
From national emblems to fintech start-ups, the UK has given birth to a number of institutions that have embraced data science since then.
How can they understand and predict customer behaviour thanks to analytics and deep learning?

For our last Meetup this year, come and join our community to hear more about real-life projects around pizzas and beers! But first, let's have an appetizer:


Guest #1: The British Museum
« Mummies, Machine Learning and Mythbusting »

Coline Cuau is a Visitor Insight Manager at the British Museum.
She'll show us how from very little data, her team finally managed to build a complete visitors insight system! Using TripAdvisor and various data sources, she will demonstrate how cultural institutions can leverage new technologies.


Guest #2: Revolut
« AI in Financial Services. Anti-Fraud System Example »

Philipp Burda is a Data Scientist at Revolut. How did the successful app worked its way through the closed world of banking industry?
By putting the focus on cyber-security, he'll give us his view on deep learning for fraud detection.


Guest #3: The BBC
« Killing Eve with Data »

Toby Evans is a Data Engineer at the BBC. What do data reveal about viewer behaviour?
Blurring the thin line between fiction and reality, Toby will show how a data-driven campaign can engage new viewers and give us an insight into the way we consume series.


See you then !
