7 March, 2018 - Natura Urbana: The Brachen of Berlin

Time: 18:20:00 - 20:30:00

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Urban Lab Films present one of the first UK screenings of 'Natura Urbana: The Brachen of Berlin' (UK/Germany, 72 mins) by Matthew Gandy. The prize-winning documentary tells the post-war history of Berlin through its plants, as we encounter an extraordinary variety of spontaneous vegetation from all over the world that has sprouted along railway lines, on street corners, and in the distinctive Brachen of Berlin. The changing vegetation serves as a parallel history to war-time destruction, geopolitical division, and the newest phase of urban transformation. In addition to stunning urban landscapes, and unknown or rarely seen archive footage, the film features interviews with leading cultural and scientific figures from Berlin such as the botanist Herbert Sukopp and the actor and writer Hanns Zischler. Tickets to the screening will be made available via the registration link from 6pm on Thursday 15 February.

Location: Bertha DocHouse, Curzon Bloomsbury, The Brunswick Centre , London , WC1N 1AW

9 March, 2018 - Energy Data Hackathon with UCL and Voltaware

Time: 14:00:00 - 18:00:00

The challenge will be to utilise data from Voltaware’s proprietary home energy monitoring system and to come up with a machine learning algorithm that performs best at identifying the sources of energy consumption in a home using high frequency electricity metered data. This is known as energy disaggregation using non-intrusive load monitoring. A training data set will be provided and the algorithm that demonstrates the highest accuracy on a test data set will be the metric. Teams are allowed to whichever tools they deem best and any other sources of data they can think of. Enjoy a weekend of hacking and problem solving investigating how data science can be used in the energy industry. Voltaware are sponsoring a £500 prize for the winning team

Location: Room 225, Central House, 14 Upper Woburn Place , LONDON, WC1H 0NN
