Main Talks
--------------

* Tariq Rashid on “Trust, Ethics, and Safety in Data Science”

There is a growing interest in how safely and ethically organizations use data, machine learning, and automated decisions. Drawing on recent consultations by the UK government and EU, Tariq will explore a practical framework for developing and demonstrating trustworthy AI that covers not just data and technology, but also process and governance.

* Anders Bogsnes on "PyTorch in three chapters"

Neural Networks are all the rage, with Pytorch this and Tensorflow that. We will strip it all down, building a neural net in pure Numpy, switching to basic Pytorch and ending up with a bells-and-whistles implementation in Pytorch. You should end up with an appreciation for exactly what Pytorch gives you and understand deep learning a little bit more!

Lightning Talks
---------------------

Richard on Man Group Hackathon Retrospective: https://www.man.com/hackathon2019

Geir Freysson on Quantipy: an open source python library for analysing survey data. Analysing survey data with python isn't as straight forward as you might think and how Quantipy solves that problem.

Logistics
-------------
Doors open at 6.30 pm (get there early as you have to sign-in via building security), talks start at 7 pm, drinks from 9 pm in the bar. We normally have >200 folks in the room so there's plenty of people to discuss data science questions with!

Please unRSVP in good time if you realize you can't make it. We're limited by building security on the number of attendees, so please free up your place for your fellow community members!
