What can Big Data do for Chemistry II

Organised by:

SCI's Fine Chemicals Group

London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

Big Data is the process of analysing high volume, high velocity data by advanced computational methods that produce actionable knowledge. A system that suggests actions to a user is one definition of Artificial Intelligence (AI). These approaches have thrown up surprising, often counter-intuitive results, in many industries especially in on-line retail for example. Other industries have achieved a clear bottom line benefit out of Big Data (and AI), but what can it do for chemistry? In this second running of this meeting the presenters will talk about what these techniques have done and should bring to augment the working environment of chemists. The conference is for chemists interested in learning more and for decision makers who want an update on what is going on (as opposed to a technical conference by leading computing specialists).

This event is followed by Leaders of the future: Effective networking for mid-career professionals. Registration for this networking event is free of charge.


Attendees

The conference will be of interest to chemists interested in learning more and for decision makers who want an update on what is going on (as opposed to a technical conference by leading computing specialists).
