Data Science Research Lightning TalksAttendees discovered LSE's world leading data science projects at this event that took place within LSE Welcome.
Our speakers were given the task of delivering their presentations in the form of timed 'Lightning Talks' with just one slide to use as a visual aid. This format ensured that the event remained focused and engaging for the audience who were of a range of backgrounds. Following each presentation, those in attendance asked questions and offered comments.
Presentations focused on ongoing work in areas such as health, climate change and politics. This was of use to new students and researchers whose first introduction to the data science research at LSE made clear the interdisciplinary scope of this work and its potential societal impact.
