EPCC took part in Datafest18, the Data Science Festival, this year by running our own fringe event in Edinburgh and exhibiting at the Data Summit Conference.

Fringe events are key to the success of Datafest, and with over 40 running across Scotland there was plenty to choose from. We ran a small event to deliver key insights on the new developments in the application of supercomputing to large-scale data analytics and machine learning. Our colleagues gave a series of talks and attendees also had an opportunity to see a live supercomputer in action via Wee Archie. The event allowed for plenty of questions and in-depth conversations, notably around deep learning and using neural networks to solve real-life problems. It closed with Dr Adam Carter providing some further details on what makes a data scientist, and the various routes to development and further training.
