Scotland Data Science & Technology MeetUp

This is a group for anyone interested in Data Science, Big Data, Analytics and Technology trends. We started this group to build a community to discuss general insights into the market and share personal experiences of working and operating in this area. We hope to cover skills shortages, technological advancements and organisational implications in Data Science and Technology during our series of meetups. All skill levels are welcome.

  • Presentation 1 - Towards the autonomous project

    Mudano is developing the autonomous project. We are using AI technology to build a project management platform that will predict project risks and suggest the most efficient route to ensure on-time and on-cost project delivery. Consider the driverless car – using knowledge of its environment combined with AI-based decision making, the car reacts to changes in the environment and avoids emergency situations. We are developing the technology do this for large-scale project management.

    Dr Euan Wielewski - Euan is Head of Research at Mudano. He leads Mudano's Data Science R&D and UX Research Teams, and has responsibility for Mudano's research and development strategy. Before joining Mudano in February 2018, Euan led the Materials Research Group at the University of Glasgow, where he was a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Mechanical Engineering. He has held postdoctoral research posit...

  • This will be an informal data community night, with no guest speakers.

    While we will focus on remedying the Open Data situation in Aberdeen, if you want to give a 5 minute update on any projects, interest areas etc please let us know in advance and we will build an agenda.

    Expect pizza and beer.

    Thanks to MBN Solutions and Data Lab Scotland for sponsoring this event.
