UCL SpaceTimeLab in 2017 New Scientist Live

On the 29th of September 2017, UCL SpaceTimeLab presented their latest research at the 2017 New Scientist Live exhibition at ExCel London (https://live.newscientist.com/). New Scientist is the world’s biggest science weekly, enjoyed by over 5 million readers each week, and their Live show is an exciting exhibition of ideas and technologies covering a range of fields including engineering, computer science, biotechnology, earth and cosmos science.

SpaceTimeLab’s research was part of the “Mathematics in the Real World” stand, shared with the Isaac Newton Institute (https://www.newton.ac.uk/ ), Turing Gateway (https://www.turing-gateway.cam.ac.uk/), Mathematics OR Society (https://www.lms.ac.uk/), ICMS (http://www.icms.org.uk/) and the IMA (https://ima.org.uk/ ). SpaceTimeLab research on display included an interactive mapping demo of crime prediction, and two posters on Oyster card user profiling and targeted advertising. The stand was very popular with people of different backgrounds, occupations and age, including many middle school students. Visitors were interested to see mathematics and computer science theories applied to real world applications such as crime prediction.
