Take your Flu immunisations process paperless with NDL
9am - 1pm

Join NDL to hear a real example of how one of our NHS customers has taken great steps towards a fully paperless schools immunisation programme.
The Trust is responsible for the immunisation of up to 75,000 children overall, however chose to target those in Primary Education with this year’s Flu vaccination. This amounts to 45,000 children in 480 primary school settings.
You will learn first-hand how mobilising parental consent for flu immunisation vaccines has had an overwhelmingly positive impact on community and school Nurses time.
NDL will explain:

How the trust deployed e-forms using FX, generating an extremely high take up, with over 10,000 submissions during the first few days
Why the solution fulfilled the business case and how they are able to better analyse the data to get insights into take up of vaccination programs in different age groups and areas
The improvements to the way clinicians work, as well as compliance with H&S regulations
Potential pitfalls to be aware of when planning, creating and launching mobile working projects

Machine Learning and its Ethical Dilemmas: an Introduction
2:15pm - 4:15pm

AI and the use of machine learning algorithms have increasingly become embedded into everyday technology, influencing everything from Netflix's suggestion of films you might like, to how much your car insurance will cost. However, the increased use of algorithms raises important ethical questions about how society understands and scrutinises decisions made in this way.  
Aimed at a broad scientific audience, this event is an opportunity to acquire a rapid overview of machine learning and the ethical questions that surround it, in preparation for the series of seminars planned during the semester. There will also be a guided practical session (bring your laptop) to see algorithms in action!
To take part in the practical session please install Anaconda 5.01 with Python 3.6 download 14 February - practical documents save and unzip to your desktop prior to the event.
