Data Science Club #7 - Text Mining

Time: 14:00 - 15:30

Venue: CoLab 1 Kilburn Building

The DSI invites you to the first Data Science Club of 2017 taking place on Monday 27th February. Focusing on the theme of Text Mining this event will involve keynote talks from Sophia Ananiadou, Director of the National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM) & Steve Naylor from the Health and Safety Laboratory.

Sophia is a Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester. She has led the development of the text mining tools and services currently used in NaCTeM with the aim to provide scalable text mining services: information extraction, intelligent searching, association mining, etc. She has received the IBM UIMA innovation award 3 consecutive times and is also a Daiwa award winner.

Steve is a Senior Data Scientist at the Health and Safety Laboratory, the scientific arm of the Health and Safety Executive and a world leading provider of health and safety solutions to industry, commerce, government and professional bodies. His area of expertise is in the use of descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytic techniques to generate intelligence from disparate big data type sources, particularly unstructured (text) data, to inform organisational, data driven decision-making, at operational, tactical and strategic levels.

If you would be interested in giving a 5-10 minute flash talk on your research in Text Mining at this Data Science Club please contact mia.belfield@manchester.ac.uk
