2023: 

We look forward to welcoming you to the UCL Centre for Digital Innovation for our technical workshops and innovation community events.

The 2023 schedule will be anounced soon, stay tuned! 

2022: 

FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) on Amazon Web Services workshop  

Date: Tuesday, 15 November 2022 (9:30am - 4:30pm) 

Duration: Full day workshop between 9:30am and 4pm. 

Registration: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/fast-healthcare-interoperability-resources-fhir-on-aws-workshop-tickets-424663188027 

Description: The FHIR Builders Day is a full day event providing participants with an introduction to HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) and AWS solutions featuring FHIR. Participants will get hands on with both FHIR Works on AWS and Amazon HealthLake, solutions used to solve the interoperability challenges faced by all healthcare organisations. Presentations and labs throughout the day will explain and guide participants through deploying and working with the AWS solutions from inside the AWS console. 

Prerequisite knowledge: Familiarity of the AWS console and CLI is an advantage to complete the workshop steps in the time allocated but full instructions are provided. You will not be expected to author FHIR resources from scratch, but FHIR knowledge will help to fully understand the data payloads used throughout the workshop and to understand the functionality provided by FHIR Works on AWS and Amazon HealthLake. 


AI Transparency: What does it mean for your business? A fireside chat with experts from academia and the industry.

AI Privacy: How to manage the privacy risks of AI systems. A fireside chat with experts from academia and the industry. 

Date: Wednesday, 30 November 2022 

Time: 3:30-6:00pm 

Where: UCL Centre for Digital Innovation, IDEALondon - 69 Wilson St, London EC2A 2BB

How to engage: In-person, public event. Register now on eventbrite to secure your spot. 

Details:  

Organisations use AI and machine learning to inform decisions and automate critical processes, like medical diagnosis. There are significant privacy risks, because large amounts of sensitive data is often processed and more data usually means better performing AI.

This session will explore the state-of-the-art privacy engineering techniques which practitioners can employ to mitigate the risks of AI systems, promote data minimization, and ensure AI is privacy-preserving by design. While, there can be trade-offs between safeguarding privacy and implementing wider responsible AI principles, like transparency and fairness, we will discuss sector specific best practices.

Data Tokenisation, Trusted Data and Data Ecosystems of Tomorrow

Date: Friday, 09 December 2022 

Time: 1:30-2:30pm 

Where: UCL Centre for Digital Innovation, IDEALondon - 69 Wilson St, London EC2A 2BB

How to engage: In-person, public event. Register now on eventbrite to secure your spot. 

Details:  

Data impacts everyone, regardless of industry, geography or type of entity. The inability, and sometimes unwillingness, to share and use data (e.g. to combat COVID-19 pandemic) or to protect against the predatory use of data has negatively impacted individuals, private enterprises, research institutions and governments around the globe. Accelerating the responsible exchange and use of data can solve critical challenges and fuel innovation for society but a lack of trust combined with asymmetric economic interests are slowing down this progress.

Join us for an immersive, in-person fireside chat with Enzo Fenoglio and Dr. Hirsh Pithadia to explore how developments in smart contracts, privacy enhancing technologies and tokenomics can be used to address some of these challenges and build radically different and fairer data infrastructures of tomorrow.

Speakers

  • Enzo Fenoglio: Enzo is a senior research associate at UCL Computer Science
  • Hirsh Pithadia: Hirsh is the CEO and founder of valyu.network
