External event
Monday, 20 January 2020, 9.30am to 5.00pm

In collaboration with the Humanities and Data Science Turing Interest Group, the final event of the CAS Network will take place at The Alan Turing Institute on 20 January 2020.

By bringing together experts from various disciplines and backgrounds, this closing event of the Network aims to explore and discuss why, and how to best, integrate computational thinking into archival theory and practice.

University of Cambridge event
Wednesday, 22 January 2020, 4.00pm to 5.10pm

We are delighted to invite you to join us to the first SynTech CDT networking event on the 22nd January at the Department of Chemistry.

External event
Friday, 24 January 2020, 9.30am to 5.00pm

The Alan Turing Institute event

In an era where science is afflicted by the ‘reproducibility crisis’, the need to improve confidence in scientific methods and data is immediate. Within the domain of computational science, the ability to produce high-fidelity predictions based on in silico methods is widely recognised to be essential in order to transform numerous industries, from pharmaceuticals to aerospace, automotive and fusion.

C2D3 event
Tuesday, 25 February 2020, 9.00am to 2.30pm

Bayesian hierarchical modelling (BHM) is one of the most powerful modern statistical techniques. It provides a unifying framework for dealing with a diversity of sources of complexity arising from the structure (e.g. dependence) of the data and its associated measurement process. Hierarchical model building strategy involves defining latent unobserved quantities of interest which are organised into a number of levels with distinct interpretations and building probabilistic between the latent quantities and the data.

External event
