  • Sheffield meetup for web designers & developers: UX/UI, content, accessibility, and code.

  • This month we've got a change of venue, a change of format and a change of... well... just about everything!

    We're holding a crossover event with SHINDIG (www.shindigdev.com). They're a local group of independent games developers who mainly work as individuals or small teams.

    We're starting off with a couple of talks about the highs and lows of games development and games testing, followed by a bit of a hands on session. We've invited some developers to bring their projects along and let a room full of testers loose on them! Our game devs get some valuable feedback and our testers get to apply their skills to something a bit different and hopefully a bit more fun!

    We're in the Old Queens Head this month, so you can stay and play until closing time if you like.

    As always, if you'd like to sponsor, host or speak at a future event then please do get in touch! And don't forget to keep an eye on the Meetup page or on www.twitter.com for details of upcoming events.

  • Description
    29 April 2019 - 1pm - The Intelligence of Things
    Dr Mercedes Bunz, Kings College London
    RC204 - Information School

    Artificial intelligence – data analysis and machine learning - drives many internet of thing devices from the speaking Siri on our phones to self-driving cars or smart cities. Devices are tracking and tracing their users and communicating with them, processing data and learning about their environment. In her talk, Mercedes will analyse how the agency of technology introduced by intelligent things is currently negotiated. Using critical discourse analysis, the first step will be to contrast technologies that are making things ‘intelligent’ with the way tech companies but also the media address this intelligence. In her second step, she will then focus on the potential of things which that sense their environment, which they offer through their data.

    Mercedes Bunz is Senior Lecturer in Digital Society at the Department of Digital Humanities, King's Coll...

  • Neuroscientist and composer Cliff Kerr teams up with Associate Artists Ligeti Quartet. Explore what happens when performers become composers in the most direct, yet subconscious way possible; by translating brain activity into musical scores, in real time.

    Leveraging recent advances in non-invasive EEG hardware and time series analysis methods this world premiere is surrounded by pieces which make use of some of the same elements. The shared consciousness represented in Lutos?awski’s masterminding of the aleatoric process; Ruth Crawford Seeger’s trailblazing use of textures in her highly original 1931 string quartet where the whole is greater than the sum of individual parts and Feshareki's slowly cumulative exploration of open strings and harmonics.

    This is a Pay What You Think concert. You need to pre-book your ticket(s) then are asked to ‘pay what you think’ once the concert is finished. Payments can be made by cash or text message. Front of House staff will be around to help...

    Third Thursday of every month from 12 noon

We will cover a range of topics such as leadership, organisational culture and investment readiness, but we’re open to hearing your suggestions for what topics you’d like to learn about in future months. We promise that you’ll leave each session with something that you can implement immediately in your business - whether that’s a quick fix for an ongoing niggle, or a more in-depth solution that will unlock the next stage of business growth.

    - Map risk factors and community assets/services by geography in Sheffield -

    (see the full vote results at doodle.com).

    So, this Meetup will be to explore this idea more and to get cracking on something! We will be holding another Meetup the week after this to carry on with the work if needed.
