  • Hi all,

    The vis meetup is back after a "summer" break! This session will host two projects / topics.

    --- UPDATED CONTENT---

    1) Tobias Kauer, PhD student with Design Informatics and his research on visualizations for city data. Data Visualizations are artifacts of a unidirectional creation and communication process: from the data source to the audience. The knowledge they convey is situated and partial, therefore a single perspective onto the data may not be enough to understand and represent the underlying issues.

    Practices like data-driven storytelling, PPGIS and visualizations in digital humanities started focusing on the qualitative context and thick descriptions of local knowledge behind the data. However, little research has been done to figure out, how people express themselves within a visualization and how to foster this expression.

    Discursive visualization therefore is an interdisciplinary approach. It goes beyond building interfaces that invite for the collection of cont...

    Tim Nash from 34SP will be here to provide some practical security tips to help you protect your site and its contents. He'll then introduce us to penetration testing (pentesting) whereby you can use some tools of the hacking trade to test your own site for its vulnerabilities.
    It should be a fascinating insight and something we can all benefit from.

    The Building Blocks of a Citizen Focused World

    Venue: Craiglockhart Campus (parking provided)

    Abstract:

    GDPR defines an increased focused on encryption and pseudo-anonymization. But many recent data breaches have shown that organisations often have poor practice when it comes to the anonymisation of personally identifiable information. And so, in future systems, we need to focus on the anonymisation the lowest layers of our data gathering, and then identify methods of revealing the information. But how are we going to apply machine learning into infrastructure which use encrypted data? And how are we going to identify individuals within anonymised infrastructures? And how are we going to be able to regulate for consent, privacy and governance?

    Tom Chivers - The AI Does Not Hate You: How much should we worry about an AI apocalypse?

    Fears around "superintelligence" and the AI apocalypse usually bring up pictures of the Terminator, and Skynet rebelling when it achieves consciousness. But a group of people worry that the truth is both more prosaic and more frightening: that a superintelligent machine will do exactly what we ask of it, but in doing so will kill us all. In my book – and in this talk – I look at whether their worries are worth paying attention to.

    Tom is a science writer. He worked for seven years for the Telegraph and three for BuzzFeed UK before going freelance in 2017. He has won several awards for his writing, including a Statistical Excellence in Journalism prize from the Royal Statistical Society, and was nominated for Best Science Journalism at the British Journalism Awards 2017.

  • Some say that he can answer any question before it’s even been asked it, and that he has already written the next 5 version of C# in Depth, the books are apparently locked in a Redmond vault and will be used to create the official specifications. All I know, is that he’ll be in Aberdeen on 2nd October and you’ll not want to miss this Meetup!

    That’s right we have Jon Skeet coming to Aberdeen on Wednesday 2nd October to talk, in depth, about C#8! And with .NET Core 3.0 launching just days before at .NET Conf, the 3 day virtual event co-organised by the .NET community and Microsoft, there will be plenty to talk about at this meetup so you'll hopefully be able to join us.

  • The most productive and innovative organisations are those that can navigate uncertainty most effectively. The fundamental uncertainty that we encounter is uncertainty around human behaviour. How can we be certain that a person, or a team, or an organisation will behave in a particular way? How can we shift mindsets to be more certain of our intended outcomes? How can we become more certain of our own behaviours, so we can show up authentically, instead of always feeling like impostors?

    The conventional approach to working with behavioural uncertainty is trying to minimise it by using apparently objective approaches such as psychometric tools or behavioural inventories. Although these seemingly objective approaches may provide the comfortable illusion of behavioural predictability, the reality is that they are poor predictors of behavioural outcomes.

    Rather than working with these invalidated and unreliable tools, it is far more effective to validate our perspectives and rely on our...

  • The group meets over pizza and beer or soft drinks, ranging and rambling chat, in addition to interesting and informative talks.

    In June we have a talk about App development workflows, for web developers, using Flutter and Dart. Flutter is an open-source mobile application development framework created by Google. It is used to develop applications for Android and iOS. Dart is a client-optimized programming language for fast apps on multiple platforms. It is developed by Google and is used to build mobile, desktop, backend and web applications. Dart is an object-oriented, class defined, garbage-collected language using a C-style syntax.

    The group is diverse, welcoming, sociable, relaxed, irreverent, informative and fun.
