The talk could be to present your current work, a topic that you just learned, the reason why you are attending PyData Bristol. As an example, these is a small list with the most mentioned topics from PyData Bristol community: machine learning, data visualisation, python, data science, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, deep learning, neural networks, business, to mention a few. Thanks in advance for your time! :)

What is PyData?

PyData provides a forum for the international community of users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The global PyData network promotes discussion of best practices, new approaches, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization. PyData communities approach data science using many languages, including (but not limited to) Python, Julia, and R.

PyData is an educational program of NumFOCUS, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the United States. The PyData Code of Conduct ( http://pydata.org/code-of-conduct.html ) governs this meetup.

Lightning Talks

# 1. Discrete Fourier Transforms on Convolutional Neural Networks for time series - Michael Roberts

This talk will give a brief overview of a method to apply Convolutional Neural Networks to analysis of audio data through the use of the Discrete Fourier Transform. This approach is used in the current state-of-the-art algorithm for musical segment boundary detection, the subject of my MSc thesis.

Mike has been working in academic publishing for over 16 years. His data science journey started over ten years ago, using natural language processing to semantically enrich documents. More recently he has worked on projects to forecast user web behaviour, provide custom content recommendation systems, and generate long-range customer churn predictions. He has an MSc in Data Science from University of the West of England.

# 2. TBC

Talks kick off at 18:30 sharp; then networking in The Knights Templar from 20:40.
