Agenda

9:00-9:30 Arrival and registration with tea and coffee
9:30-9:45 Opening by Professor Stephen Jarvis
9:45-10:15

Professor Thomas Hills - Using AI to understand the past

The past has been likened to a foreign country. But what if you could go there? Using algorithms that read billions of words of text, we are making advances towards looking into the past to understand what people thought and believed and how that changed in response to historical events.

Thomas Hills
10:15-10:45

Professor Frances Griffiths - AI and the management of health conditions

Clinical, social and ethical issues in the development of AI to support monitoring and management of health conditions globally.

Co-authors: Dr Penny Kechagioglou and Bill Kelly from University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire and Dr Magdalena Skybant from NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) West Midlands

Frances Griffiths
10:45-11:00 Morning break
11:00-11:30

Professor Jim Smith - Criminal Bayesian Models

Outlining Professor Smith's research in developing fast decision support tools for policing violent criminals. Often the data is rich but very patchy and dynamic and expert judgements are significant. They present a dynamic state space model that can not only capture all of the critical features of these processes, but can also be quickly adapted in the light of unpredicted but critical intelligence reports.

Jim Smith
11:30-12:05

Professor Juergen Branke - Efficient data collection for optimisation

Identifying the best solution out of a potentially large set of alternatives requires to first collect data to understand the quality of different alternatives.

Juergen Branke
12:05-13:00 Break for lunch and showcase viewing
13:05-13:35

Associate Professor Cagatay Turkay- Facilitating Well-Informed Data Science Through Visualisation

The talk will discuss how visualisation and interactive computational methods can facilitate well informed, reflective, and critical data science practices . Cagatay will walk through examples of research on how data can be transformed and visualised creatively in multiple perspectives, on how comparisons can be made within different models, parameters, and within local and global solutions, and on how interaction is an enabler for such processes.

Theo Damoulas
13:35-14:05 Dr Tom Sorell - Ethics and artificial intelligence
