What is the X-Sensing Conference?
The 'cross-sensing' conference aims to unite scientists from diverse fields with industry professionals and experts in artificial intelligence. The week-long meeting is divided into two parts: a 2-day training workshop and a 3-day cross-disciplinary conference centred on a hack day.
Who is the conference for?
The conference is for data-focused scientists working in a wide variety of fields: astronomy, biology, linguistics, ecology, archaeology, geology, geography, medical imaging, sensors and many others. All these fields face similar 'big data' challenges. The training workshop aims to teach data-science and machine learning techniques. The conference aims to be a cross-disciplinary research accelerator, bootstrapping exciting new science projects.
Why should I come to this conference?
You should definitely come to this conference if:
- You want to learn how to incorporate machine-learning into your research.
- You are interested in starting a cross-disciplinary project.
- You are a creative thinker and want to be inspired by research in other fields.
- You are considering a career in industry and want to build your network.
- You want to spend time in a creative environment to spark ideas.
Each field brings unique perspectives so opportunities for cross-pollination will result in advances in new directions and greater efficiency to solve current problems. The conference will help build a dynamic community of industry-connected scientists with the skills to leverage the power of artificial intelligence.
The X-sensing conference is proudly sponsored by:
Our industry partners are sending speakers to inspire you, experts to train you and equipment to help build your project on hack-day.
