Please put the afternoon of Thursday, 3rd September in your diary for the "Analytics in the North" event organised jointly by the OR Society, Government OR Service (GORS) and Decision Analysis Special Interest Group (DASIG), featuring speakers from public and private sector and academia.
Claire Potter (HMRC) will talk about the challenges of using predictive analytics to influence customer behaviour as early as possible, for example by reducing opportunities for error, fraud or non-compliance.
Matthew Robinson (IBM) will explain the journey that takes businesses from statistics and business intelligence, through predictive analytics to cognitive analytics.
Professor John Keane (University of Manchester) will discuss the development of Decision Support System (DSS) tools and algorithms and their role in “value added data systems”.
Mike Tanner (Mitan Ltd) will discuss how changing business, legal, and technological factors affect the nature of OR solutions, and the need for clear objectives. This will be illustrated by why and how a non-simulation model was developed for complex queuing systems.
There will also be an opportunity to network with professionals working in different sectors and organisations during the event. Refreshments will be provided.
