Data Science Research Theme is pleased to be sponsoring the Scottish Digital Health and Urban Informatics (SDHUI)– Data Challenge & Workshop which takes place on Monday 20th August 2018 the University of Strathclyde

Public health organisations (such as the NHS), (national and local) governments, as well as local city councils, are all gathering huge amounts of such data, a considerable subset of which is available for open access. Furthermore, urban informatics aims to exploit the huge volume of information produced by modern cities in order to gain insights into how these cities function.

The goal of the inaugural Scottish Digital Health & Urban Informatics event is to provide a multidisciplinary forum, bringing together researchers from across SICSA institutions and beyond, working in the fields of data science, digital health, smart cities, urban studies and other related disciplines, under the auspices of a SICSA-organised data challenge.

As part of this challenge, a specially curated set of large heterogeneous open access datasets will be provided, from which contestants will draw insights and submit a report with their findings. The organisers will then carefully select the most insightful among these submissions to be presented at the workshop.

The workshop provides enormous opportunities for data scientists who wish to understand the complexities of working with city data, conduct innovative research within urban informatics, and build a long-term community in this emerging research area.

The organisers of this Workshop are Yashar Moshreghi, University of Strathclyde and Nikos Ntarmos, University of Glasgow
