Cancer cures, currency conversion and creativity!

Computer Science in Action returns to London and Online this autumn!

With five fascinating talks on offer, Computer Science in Action, in London and Online on December 3rd, has something for everyone.

We are pleased to welcome Amanda Prorok, to speak about how robots can achieve complex tasks when they are programmed to work cooperatively.  She is joined by Jasmin Fisher – Professor of Computational Biology at UCL – who develops state-of-the-art computational models and analysis techniques to study cancer evolution and mechanisms of drug resistance to identify better personalised treatments for cancer patients.  Financial engineer Dave Cliff asks if we should be worried about the influences that robot traders and Bitcoin bring to our financial markets, and Anna Jordanous explores the creative possibilities of getting computers to model, simulate and replicate human behaviour.

As we return to in-person events, Computer Science in Action continues to feature lively and enriching sessions exploring a variety of topics carefully designed to extend students’ knowledge, including a session on examination success from the chair of the day, Paul Long.  For those who are unable to join us in London, the event will also be available via livestream from the venue.
