Speaker: Professor Tim Lang, Professor of Food Policy, City University London.

Monday 8 February 2016

This lecture explored the significance of the emergence of big data in the world of food and proposed that the 21st century food challenge is no longer a matter of plentiful supply of cheap affordable foods, as the productionists conceived it in the mid 20th century.

Big food data reminds us that the battle for food control is both about information and minds not just nutrients, bodies and ecosystems. And it is still about which policy direction to follow. Big data does not reduce the options but does add urgency.


Speaker: Professor Sir John Bell, Regius Professor of Medicine, University of Oxford.

Monday 22 February 2016

Although big data has heralded a transformative change in the way we conduct research and understand disease, medicine has been among the slowest of disciplines to recognise the value of large datasets.

Big data techniques could result in better understanding of diseases and improved targeting of treatments: combining data such as electronic health records, biobanks, and information generated from wearable devices could allow researchers to develop algorithms for diagnosis, therapeutic responses, and clinical decision support.

Speaker: Larry Hirschhorn

04/11/2015

Larry Hirschhorn, Principal CFAR, explores the dynamics of this mental process; how cognition, emotion and group dynamics shape the decisions executives make to reorient their businesses.

This focus on the mental is fundamental to understanding business decision making because, as many consultants have learned to their sorrow, presenting the most suitable strategy to an executive team in the most effective possible manner may not persuade them to make any change to their current practices and strategies. We can't treat the decision making process itself as a black box any longer.
