“The Bayesian Crowd”– Professor Roberts (04/07/17)
The first speaker was 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 spoke about 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.
“Machines That See” – Professor Andrew Blake (13/09/17)
A lecture given by Research Director for the Alan Turing Institute and former Laboratory Director of Microsoft Research (Cambridge), Prof. Andrew Blake:
The visible world is ambiguous, so estimating physical properties by machine vision relies on probabilistic methods. Prior distributions over shape can help significantly to make finding and tracking objects more robust. Learned distributions for colour and texture make the estimators even more discriminative. These ideas fit into a philosophy of vision as inference: exploring hypotheses for the contents of a scene that explain an image as fully as possible.
“Just the Essential Information Please”– Professor Jared Tanner (TBD)
Professor of the Mathematics of Information at the University of Oxford and The Alan Turing Institute’s University Liaison Director, Professor Jared Tanner will show both how to apply compressed sensing and matrix completion, as well as the elegant geometric interpretations.
“The Automatic Statistician”– Professor Zoubin Ghahramani (18/04/18)
Talk given by Professor of Information Engineering at the University of Cambridge, leader of the Cambridge Machine Learning Group, and the Cambridge Liaison Director of the Alan Turing Institute; Zoubin Ghahramani. The lecture will regard the use of Bayesian model selection strategies that automatically select and use models to generate human readable reports.

G-Research Lecture Series
The G-Research Lecture series features the world’s leading experts in science and technology speaking on a range of topics in which they are recognised thought-leaders. The topic of the lectures explores major fields of current research at a level that will engage researchers in the field and industry experts, while being accessible and engaging for those without specialist knowledge. It is an opportunity for G-Research to support our partners and friends in the academic community by providing access to world-leading thinkers and ideas.
Mike I. Jordan- Computational Thinking, Inferential Thinking and Data Science
Mike will be exploring the rapid growth in the size and scope of datasets in science and technology, which has created a need for novel foundational perspectives on data analysis that blend the inferential and computational sciences.
When: 15/01/2018 at 7pm
To register your interest please email email@example.com.
For our inaugural lecture, we invited US computer scientist and former MIT professor Scott Aaronson to present at the first in a series of science & technology lectures we will be holding.

Register for G-Research Coding Events
Please join us for our annual coding challenge where you will compete in teams in a series of progressively more difficult sentiment analysis challenges.This is a great chance to test your problem solving and coding skills and a chance to win a £50 Amazon vouchers per team member (plus prizes for runners up!).
To take part all you need is at least one laptop per team and have a development environment set up for C#, Java or Python and you must be able to provide your own internet access. Afterwards we will provide food and drinks and a chance for you to talk to our employees informally about internships, graduate roles and life at G-Research!
To register your interest please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can register alone or as part of a team of up to 4 members, if you register individually you will be allocated a team at the event.
