Event Description

Ensemble is an artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science event held regularly at Peak in Manchester. Like an ensemble model, the event will allow learning through exposure to a diverse set of experiences. Each month, a top researcher from the fields of computer science, statistics or operational research will be invited to present their work. The audience will be made up of data scientists, software engineers, researchers and company CIOs from tech companies and universities.

This will be a great opportunity to learn and network with fellow professionals and academics in the field.


Talk abstract:

Changepoints are distinct times within your data when the statistical properties change. Changepoints are ubiquitous and it is important to understand if you have changes within your data as ignoring changepoints will invalidate inference and ruin predictive performance. This talk will give you an understanding of, and the intuition behind, methods for changepoint detection. We will cover how to use the changepoint R package including the new functionality, introduced this summer, for changes in regression and accounting for dependence in your data. Examples will include data from retail, environment, finance and health.

The talk is designed to be accessible for those with no knowledge of changepoint detection and will favour intuition over statistical equations.
