Applying Data Science means more than just writing machine learning algorithms or plotting correlations. In a business context it requires a break from the traditional BI culture and embracing a multi-departmental process. In academia, this might translate to a strongly multi-disciplinary approach and an understanding of the latest technological advances. Data Science Models need to fit in an organisation’s production workflow, be focused on specific problems, and above all be repeatable. In this webinar, the Pivotal Data Labs team will share best practices and lessons learned in the trenches helping large organisations in various fields adopt data science.

Inspired by the pioneering work of the World Wide Web Foundation and the global ‘Web We Want’ campaign, Southbank Centre announces a major festival spanning Sep 2014 – May 2015 that looks at the extraordinary impact the web has had on individuals, governments and societies at large.
The ‘Web We Want’ festival is dedicated to the idea that the World Wide Web can empower people to bring about positive change both in their own life and in the lives of others. Launching in September this year, The ‘Web We Want’ festival asks how we can guarantee a free and open Web and how we as individuals can be free on the Web.

The Build Peace Conference brings together practitioners, activists and technologists from around the world to share experience and ideas on using technology for peacebuilding and conflict transformation.
Technology is altering how we engage with the world, offering new avenues for social change. Over the course of two days, we will explore how information and communications technologies, games, networking platforms and other tools can enhance the impact of a broad range of peacebuilding, social cohesion and peace advocacy initiatives. Most ICT4Peace discussions focus on early warning and crisis response. Few pay attention to the use of technology for attitude and behaviour change, collaboration, dialogue, or policy advocacy. Build Peace aims to complement existing forums by expanding the discussion to encompass other important areas of peacebuilding practice.
For more information on the conference program and upcoming details of the conference live streams, visit the Build Peace websitewww.howtobuildpeace.com or follow on Twitter @howtobuildpeace (or #buildpeace )
