BGGD Reloaded #1 - Come and join us for the relaunch
Bath Girl Geek Dinners
5:45pm - 7:15pm


Hello there fellow earthling -

We are looking to relaunch BGGD in Bath and since it is September, it is the perfect time to start something new. Sharpen your pencils and join us for a night of insightful and interesting talks and conversations:

_________________________________________________________________________________
Natalie Betts (Relish Agency) - Image Match Technology

Natalie will give us an idea of what is currently out there and how it is used within Marketing. She will introduce us to some of the search and find algorithms and we can have a discussion on how useful this could be for us.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lucia Velasco (currently still Seccl Technology) - Mayden Academy and alternative routes to Tech

Lucia will tell us a bit about her route to Tech and the alternatives that are out there. We will also have a bit of a conversation about how those could be more inclusive and what the challenges are.
__________________________________________________________________________________

Edit will kindly provide some snacks and drinks and we will be able to have lively conversations while enjoying the great view from their office. Please arrive around 5.45pm, since a receptionist needs to let you in and we are aiming to start at 6pm.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

ALAN Meeting Programme
Hosted by Paul O'Collins, Business West
6:00       Drinks and refreshments
6:30       Welcome to ALAN, Nigel Harris, Designability
6:40       Paul O’Collins, The Enterprise Europe Network, BusinessWest The Enterprise Europe Network helps you do business in Europe and beyond. As part of the Innovate UK family, they offer specialist support in accessing global partnership opportunities, innovation business growth support and access to UK and EU research and development grant funding.
6:55       Darren Cosker, Centre for the Analysis of Motion, Entertainment Research and Applications (CAMERA), James Bilzon, Department of Health, University of Bath
We are utilising and developing the capabilities of visual computing technologies to assist with the recovery and rehabilitation of people with physical impairments, including amputees. These technologies allow us to better record and understand the impact and severity of their physical limitations and explore methods to combat this. We have a strong history of working to develop solutions that ultimately allow people with disabilities to have a better quality of life. We are interested both in the development of new technologies, such as prosthetic components, as well as new ways of measuring physical function and patient outcomes.
7:35       Zack Lyons, A virtual reality rehabilitation environment for people with Executive Dysfunction   Centre for Digital Entertainment, University of Bath
We are finding new ways to help people who struggle with everyday life as a result of an acquired frontal brain injury. Frontal brain injuries also make it very difficult for people to read social signals in others and to manage the impulses their feelings generate. So they have significant challenges to meet in order to participate in ordinary society. We have been working with clinical psychologists to create ‘virtual reality’ (VR) experiences of challenging life-like situations to support rehabilitative interactions between people with executive dysfunction and their therapists.
7:55      Thomas Williams, Investigating Augmented Reality as a Cognitive Prosthesis for people living with Dementia, Centre for Digital Entertainment, University of Bath and Designability
There have been considerable advances in the technology and range of application of Virtual and Augmented Reality Environments. However, to date there has been limited work examining how design principles that would support successful adoption. The aim of this new three year research project is to explore how AR could be used to support those with cognitive difficulties with daily living tasks and activities. This will specifically focus on those living with dementia.
8:10- 8:30 Drinks and networking
Bath SEPTEMBER Veggie/Vegan Social :)
Bristol & West Vegetarians & Vegans
6:30pm - 11pm


Hi everyone,

This is a monthly evening get together in Bath for members of the group who live in the Bath area or just fancy a night out here! :)

These get togethers will be on a week night and be an informal evening where members can turn up at any time and stay as long as you like from 6.30 PM to 11.00PM. Whilst they will not be formal sit down meal occasions, I will choose venues where vegan/veggie food can be purchased if you wish to grab something to eat. The idea is to get together for a drink and a chat and hopefully meet some like- minded people and new friends!

SEPTEMBER MEET UP -

All Bar One, Bath

All Bar One now have a great selection of vegan dishes and also wines - I have eaten there recently a couple of times and it was really good. It's a spacious venue and centrally located close to Bath Abbey.

Check it out here!
