  • This is a virtual meetup from the AI for Good Community, where we collaborate to use AI and NLP in fighting misinformation and Climate Change denial.

    This time our community members will be joined by Jack Hampson from Deeper Insights. We are developing a tool that provides facts vs. fiction about climate change to verify news and social media posts everyone is reading online. There are two fundamental approaches we are trying to experiment with at the moment:
    1) Clustering and manual labeling
    2) Training a model on a Grist dataset

    If you know a thing or two about climate change, Natural Language Processing, web plugins, or simply feel passionate and keen to use your skills for good - please join our meetup and let's act together!

    First time here? Here's a document outlining the project we are working on: bit.ly

    In this presentation, weโ€™ll look at the current state of Angular and its tooling infrastructure. Along the way, weโ€™ll dive into the theory and motivation driving the direction of the framework.

    In the second part of the talk, weโ€™ll focus on the roadmap of Angular and peek into the future of the framework.

    About the speaker

  • It's almost that time of the year again... ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ The ShefTest Elves have been hard at work putting together another fun festive meetup.

    Things have been a bit different this year, and unfortunately that goes for our usual round of HTFDYT* too. But we've put together a couple of tenuously seasonal challenges for you instead.

    There's the 'not entirely festive but hopefully still fun' Scavenger Hunt.
    And also an 'only festive because it contains the word Rudolf' API Challenge. All you will need is an internet enabled device and your sharpest of wits.

    Plus our Christmas Jumper competition has been extended to 'Best Festive Background'. Real life trumps digital I'm afraid - so just changing your video background probably won't cut it...

    We hope you'll have some fun, and maybe even learn something new too. There might even be prizes! So put up some tinsel, grab a mince pie or three and come join in.

    The rough running order for the evening will be:

  • It's our first SmartSheffield event for more than six months and after so much disruption to our lives and our city, we want to Look to the Future!

    It's been a long hard year, but as we head into an uncertain 2021 we want to find out what some of our major urban technology programmes are planning, and what efforts are being made to support the most vulnerable among us and what role technology has played.

    The event will be held online, of course, but we're also going to try to keep to our original format as far as possible: we'll host a few short talks and then use our time to meet and connect with each other around these topics. There will be no Q&A after each talk, but questions can be asked of the speakers in breakout areas, after all the talks are over. We can't offer food and refreshments, unfortunately, but we are going to make a effort to provide you with breaks, and spaces for engaging discussion and conversation despite everyone being remote. We should also hopefully attr...

  • If you have questions about the furlough scheme extensions and managing your employees over the winter months, make sure to sign up for our webinar with HR expert Sarah Birkenshaw of Quest Consulting on Wednesday December 9th at 10am.

    How can charities and community organisations continue to deliver safe and effective services online?

    Since the start of the pandemic, many organisations across the UK have been rushing to shift their face-to-face services online. Delivering essential services to vulnerable groups in this new context has come with a number of safety challenges. With many organisations working out how to best transfer their safeguarding knowledge to a digital format, itโ€™s been hard to find what best practice looks like.

    This virtual session organised by Tech for Good Brighton, Superhighways (superhighways.org.uk) and Netsquared London (www.meetup.com) will explore in more detail how to put safeguarding at the heart of your online service delivery during the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • WHAT IS HELP A CHARITY?

    In May 2020, a community of tech volunteers launched Help a Charity with local charity partnership 10GM. Help a Charity aimed to explore how the tech community could support charities to get online in response to COVID.

    You can find out more about the story so far here: docs.google.com

    WHAT IS THIS EVENT?

    What we launched in May 2020 was very much an initial prototype. We've learned a ton of stuff about what works and what doesn't. We're really keen to share what we've found and work with the tech community to develop and scale this project so we can help more charities.

    This event is open to anyone who wants to find out more about Help a Charity and how you can...
