The Data Science Campus seminar series is a friendly and informal space for the ONS data science community to share knowledge and discuss projects, innovation and challenges in data science.
Speakers from the ONS, other government departments, research institutions, academia, business and industry present and discuss data science-related research developments, results, capability and infrastructure building at lunch time, with post-seminar discussions. The seminars run at the Data Science Campus, in Newport, with live streaming to all ONS sites.
