We are proud to announce that G-Research will be collaborating with The Alan Turing Institute to launch a lecture series on the subject of data science, its theories and applications.

Researchers from the Institute will deliver six technical talks on their research and ideas – ranging from machine learning and statistical methods to new ways to make sense of data. These will be available to the public on the the G-Research YouTube channel.

Simon Lehnis, Executive Director at G-Research, commented: “This series of events will increase awareness of the latest research by one of the world’s leading data science institutes. By sharing this with our partners and the online community we hope to inspire and inform others who are using scientific methods, data and technology to solve complex real-world problems.”

The first speaker will be Professor Stephen Roberts, Turing Faculty Fellow and Professor of Machine Learning at the University of Oxford. Speaking on the 4th July on the topic of ‘The Bayesian Crowd’, Professor Roberts will discuss how in applications such as crowdsourcing, a large amount of data needs to be combined in an intelligent manner, and looks at how Bayesian models can help do this.

The Research Director at The Alan Turing Institute, Andrew Blake, said “We are delighted to be working with G Research to bring Turing research expertise to both their community of researchers in financial services, and the wider online community. The series of talks will add to an already impressive library of Turing talks on our YouTube channel, in which we are bringing the work of our researchers to the world.”

The talks will be delivered to G-Research employees, our partners in academia and Turing researchers. Further speakers will be announced in the coming months.

Those wishing to attend any of the lectures should contact marketing@gresearch.co.uk.
