Event description
Have to go to the office, but would prefer to go to the beach? Calling all business professionals from across Hobsons Bay and surrounds.

About this Event

It seems as if there are not enough hours within a day to fulfill all the tasks needed. This is why community run Lunch and Learns are a part of the Western BACE experience.

How a Lunch and Learn works

Everyone brings their own lunch, and at 12pm sharp a member of the community presents on a topic they are a subject matter expert in for 30 minutes. The remaining 30 minutes is available for questions, conversation, debate and community networking.

As part of the Business at the Beach popup this will also be an opportunity for more people to join who were not able to secure a coworking desk for the day due to the limited space. Numbers will still be limited so registration is required.

Friday Topic - Making Data Meaningful

"I make AI: Ask me anything"

Are the robots taking over? Find out everything you wanted to ask but haven't about technology, artificial intelligence and data driven-decisions.

My company is an agency that specialises in data science, augmented and artificial intelligence. We build algorithms and software to solve problems with our transport networks and cities; to help manage the environment and to run better organisations.

Recently we've built everything from:

* Computer listening bots to tell one frog species from another

* AI-powered fraud models to help investigators

* Synthetic population datasets to help understand how households travel and live

* GPS data models to help visualise where emergency services vehicles travel.

In this lunch and learn, I'll lift the lid on the tools of the trade and then hand over to you. Any question, large or small - I'm happy to answer.

Elizabeth Stark - Managing Director Symbolix

Elizabeth is in the extremely happy position of having spent her career either:

* Building things with computers, data and maths

* Advocating and communicating about science, maths, and technology

* Leading teams and businesses to build bigger, bolder data science solutions in areas that matter; like environmental management, urban networks and health and human services.

Her background is in computational mathematics but she has provided consulting, analysis and project management to clients in government, environmental management, transport and others. Most of the time she works as Managing Director of Symbolix. They build custom data science and augmented intelligence tools, provide analysis services and support for other data-focussed teams - searching for elegant solutions to wicked problems.

Who is Western BACE and why are we doing this?

Western BACE’s vision is that Melbourne’s West has the support and enterprise ecosystem that rivals any major Australian city. To achieve this vision, Western BACE is a Not for Profit community driven business hub where people matter, feel a sense of belonging and are supported in striving for growth and excellence.

Within the Business at the Beach Pop-up Hub, Western BACE will bring a taster program of a number of the services we provide including co-working, events, workshops, and expert 1-1 support.

A major benefit to entrepreneurs will be the opportunities to help develop their own ecosystem and ensure that their own personal network for support and advisory grows. For many businesses using the Pop-up Hub, the space can simply create a geographical barrier between home and work, ensuring a focus on the business in a productive environment with no distractions for the week. The focus will be on delivering on our promise to help your business grow.

Business at the Beach is powered by Hobsons Bay City Council
