  2. The 6th International Conference on Big Data
    Event The 6th International Conference on Big Data
    Cost: FREE

    The focus of this year’s conference is on the use of Data Science for official statistics, in particular the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. In addition to the creation of Big Data centers next to the National Statistical Offices (NSOs), for example in the Republic of Korea or in the Netherlands, NSOs have started creating Data Science Campuses (for example in UK, Rwanda an UAE). What do these centers do? In general, these centers act as R&D centers, which develop and test new methods. They also have an educational program usually in cooperation with some universities.

    This Conference will cover the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for official statistics.

  6. Urban Forests on the UN Global Platform Methods Service
    Learning Urban Forests on the UN Global Platform Methods Service
    Cost: FREE

    Over the past six weeks the UN Global Platform has been collaborating with the UK’s Data Science Campus to develop an implementation of the Urban Forest project onto the cloud-based platform. The Urban Forests project aims to create an index of vegetation through taking Google street view images around the road network and classifying the amount of vegetation in each image.

  7. Learning What is a zero-knowledge proof?
    Cost: FREE

    Zero-knowledge proofs are one of the most powerful tools cryptographers have ever devised. But unfortunately they’re also relatively poorly understood. In this series of posts I’m going try to give a (mostly) non–mathematical description of what ZK proofs are, and what makes them so special.
