• Women in Data unite! A re-launch for the group

    Dear WiD group members, Welcome back!! This group changed ownership a few months ago, and has been dormant for a while. We are really excited to pick this group up again, and hopefully create a thriving event for the community. With new organisers, and probably new members, let's have a bit of a re-launch event at first? We would like to invite you to our Pivigo offices for an unofficial re-launch event. We will start with listening to Adrienne Leonard, Senior Data Scientist at FlightGlobal on "Building data-driven solutions and a data-driven culture in an industry constantly on the move" (abstract below). Following that, we will have an open discussion around what you want to get out of this group, and what events you would like us to organise going forward. And of course we will have drinks, pizza, and networking! Please join us for this re-start, and let us know how we can make this group useful for everyone! Adrienne Leonard: Building data-driven solutions and a data-driven culture in an industry constantly on the move Data is ubiquitous across the aviation industry, but it's only fairly recently that businesses across the ecosystem have started trying to harness the power of this data to build more data and analytics-driven products, processes, and decision-making tools. Cirium works as an enabler across the industry, providing data and analytics solutions to manufacturers, service providers, airports, and travel management companies that help keep the industry in motion. In this talk, I'll highlight some of the innovative data science solutions we've built - from tracking aircraft utilisation to predict maintenance intervals, to predicting passenger comfort on future flights - and talk about how we've built an agile, data-driven culture within Cirium itself.
