Attended a Professorial Lecture by Susan Craw this evening at the Garthdee campus of Robert Gordon University. The talk was titled “Smart Systems from Dumb Data“, it was divided into five distinct sections, moving along from a general introduction to beyond smart systems. A lot of the lecture was focused on the research area of Case Based Reasoning with examples from medical diagnosis and the composition of tablet formulations to audio recommendations being given. About half a dozen academics from the School of Computing were in attendance and a few PhD students, in total there was probably close to 80 people present for the lecture. The lecture commenced at 18:20 and lasted for a period of 45 minutes, after which there was some time for comments and questions before a post-lecture reception at 19:20 in H230.
