  • We're excited to announce Mode 2 Meetup Episode 17.

    Mode 2 is a regular meetup about IT innovation within large companies across central Scotland. We're sponsored by Infinity Works and episode 17 is hosted by Solarwinds.

    Each meetup will feature two short talks and a chance to connect with IT innovators in a relaxed environment with free beer/wine and pizza. The talks for this meetup are:

    1: Martina Pugliese, Data Science Lead, Mallzee

    I work as a Data Science Lead at Mallzee, Edinburgh-based tech startup helping retail making better decisions, aided by data. I’ve always got a bit of fetish for collecting data points, extracting patterns and visualising information, so back then I had decided to study Physics, just to preserve more of my sanity really. I believe and support the democratisation of knowledge, and that using data ethically makes us all better informed and freer.

    “Remaining sane in the Age of Data”

    Working with data isn’t about using the latest AI research finding. F...

  • Title of the talk to be confirmed

  • A technical talk explaining the inner workings of Bitcoin.

    This presentation will cover "Script" -- the part that locks and unlocks bitcoins inside the blockchain.

    It will answer questions like:

    * What stops other people from spending my bitcoins?
    * What kind of locks can you place on your Bitcoins?
    * How does multi signature work?
    * What's the difference between different addresses (e.g a 1address and a 3address)?
    * How does Script work?

    This is one of the more technical talks, but it's designed to be beginner friendly. So don't be afraid to come even if you're fairly new to bitcoin.

    See you there!

    P.S. If you're completely new and looking for advice, I'm planning to do a very simple introduction to using Bitcoin in January.

    About Me:

    My name is Greg, and I've been working on Bitcoin projects for around 5 years. Bitcoin can seem complex at first, so I like trying to explain how it works as simply as possible.

    My talks are ideal for anyone who has an interest in Bitcoin, and w...

  • Turn the Ship Around! tells the story of how Captain David Marquet successfully transformed the USS Santa Fe in less than a year, from the worst-performing submarine in its fleet to the best. It presents a different approach to leadership, using a “leader-leader” model instead of a “leader-follower” model. This approach can be applied to any organization to unlock the energy and potential of people at all levels. In this Turn the Ship Around summary, we’ll briefly outline the leader-leader model.

    Peter Russian (Scottish based consultant) works as a Cultural and Intent-Based Leadership Implementation - Managing Consultant (international) with David Marquet.

    he will explore the key themes of Turn the ship around and we can have a Q & A on the book and Peters Experiences.

    Information School level 2: Room 204.

    "Extracting actionable knowledge from healthcare policies".

    Abstract

    The abundance of digital information gives an unprecedented opportunity to use data science in domains such as health and social care. However, the real value of the data is in the information and knowledge that we are able to surface and materialise. Knowledge Graphs (KGs) emerged as a unifying technology that facilitates the aggregation and representation of data from multiple and diverse data sources, both inspired by, and influencing, research in areas such as AI, cognitive computing, the Semantic Web, Search, Question Answering and Information Extraction. In this talk, I will provide a perspective from my journey and experience in adopting research in KGs and related areas to address significant problems in the healthcare industry through two use cases.
    The first scenario, Fraud, Waste and Abuse in healthcare, acc...
