The Data Science Institute invites you to the next Advances in Data Science Seminar taking place on 19th February 2019. Prof Corri Black from University of Aberdeen will present ‘In a world of Big Data – is small beautiful?’
Abstract: In this Seminar, Corri shares reflections on the last 6 years of experience developing a Digital Health Ecosystem in the North East of Scotland. Using a series of exemplars from work in kidney disease analytics, virtual cohorts, low and middle income country data exploration and AI innovation in image diagnostics, she will explore some of the challenges of health data science spanning social license; trust and transparency; scalability, deep local data knowledge; capacity and skills.
She is looking forward to a discussion with you about how we use small ecoystems to understand the big challenges and drive the big solutions for big data in the coming years.
