  • If there's one challenge with conversational interfaces and bots, that has to be how effortless and smooth the interaction between
    the user and the bot has to be.

    The user shouldn't even feel like they're conversing with a program.

    That's why thinking about how to handle the conversation flow when building bots is an essential task for developers.

    In this talk, we will go through how to manage the conversation flow with Microsoft Bot Framework and dialogs.

  • Join us Thursday 28 February in Aberdeen when we'll hear from ORG’s executive director Jim Killock about the current state of digital censorship in the UK . We'll consider findings in ORG's new report on UK Internet regulation which reviews both formal and informal pracitices of digital censorship in the UK.

    www.openrightsgroup.org

    When it comes to web blocking, the same rules do not apply online as offline. Many powers and practices the government employs to remove online content would be deemed unacceptable if they were applied to offline publications.

    We'll cover the following:
    Formal censorship practices

    * Copyright blocking injunctions
    * BBFC pornography blocking
    * BBFC requests to “Ancillary Service Providers”

    Informal censorship practices

    * Nominet domain suspensions
    * The Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU)
    * The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF)
    * ISP content filtering

  • You have most likely heard of Wikipedia but what are Wikidata, Wikimedia or Wiki Commons?

    In this session you'll learn about - and get to try - a range of tools that have been built by Wikimedia volunteers to enable both the easy visualisation of information and data, and to streamline the crowdsourcing of things like pictures of listed buildings.

    This is a practical evening workshop hosted by Code The City, Dr. Sara Thomas, Scotland Programme Coordinator for Wikimedia UK, who will lead an introductory session on Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons and Wikipedia. No experience is necessary.

    This session is aimed at those with an interest in local history and culture, those who have a museums, galleries, libraries or archives background, or who just want to learn more about the Wikimedia projects and how they can get involved in improving existing data for Aberdeen and the North East. This will be an easy, informal introductory session.
