Cryptonoise

Thu 22 Nov 2018 07:00pm

We will be meeting at 57North Hacklab to bring together like minded people, discuss digital freedoms and explore the use of cryptographic tools.

Discuss digital rights issues that are in the news. Learn how you can help to protect your rights in a digital world. Bring a smartphone or laptop and browse the web anonymously, learn about these technologies and chat about the reasons we need them.

• "Do average people really need this kind of security? Yes. They may be planning a political campaign, discussing taxes, or having an illicit affair. They may be designing a new product, discussing a marketing strategy, or planning a hostile business takeover. Or they may be living in a country that does not respect the rights of privacy of its citizens. They may be doing something that they feel shouldn't be illegal, but is. For whatever reason, the data and communications are personal, private, and no one else's business." -- Bruce Schneier, Applied Cryptography - Second Edition (https://www.schneier.com/book-applied-2preface.html)

This event is co-organised by ORG Aberdeen and FSFE Aberdeen.

Dec 2018: The Data Detective, Protecting your IP rights

Tue 4 Dec 2018 06:30pm

6.30 for pizza, beers and networking.

Talks start 7pm
******************************
Talk 1 Alan Russell - “Visualising the ownership of Scottish football”

Alan Russell will share insights from his work on using data visualisations using Tableau to explore Scottish football clubs’ approach to supporter engagement and transparency, and to improve visibility of clubs’ ownership through the ‘SDS Index’. Alan will also share some earlier work done to improve supporters’ understanding of the history and ownership structure of the club he supports, Raith Rovers FC.

Bio:
Alan Russell is CEO of Supporters Direct Scotland and Chair of the Raith Supporters Trust, two organisations that help supporters gain influence in the running and ownership of their club. In his spare moments away from football he works as a management consultant, supporting global and local clients in the corporate and non-corporate sectors to develop and implement strategy.

Talk 2 -Dr. Graham McGlashan
“The Value in Data and How to Protect It – Intellectual Property (IP) for Data Related Businesses”

Where is the value in a data related business? Is it in the data itself? Perhaps it is in the way the data is collected, analysed or used? Often these intangible assets are the result of a significant amount of skill, expertise, insight, experience, time and money. For many companies, these intangible assets can contribute a sizable amount to the value of a business.

Intellectual property (IP) protection is intended to cover these very assets. However, modern IP has its roots in systems that date back hundreds of years and often struggles to adapt to modern technologies such as data based industry and machine learning. This talk is intended to give an introduction to how intellectual property protection applies to data related ideas and businesses, and give some suggestions of ways in which it can be used.

Biog
Dr Graham McGlashan is a Partner at Marks & Clerk, the largest firm of specialist Patent & Trademark Attorneys in the UK. Graham specialises in computer implemented inventions, data related concepts, machine learning, virtual/augmented reality, electronics, networks, communications and sensors. He advises a range of clients from some of the largest and most famous multinational tech companies, to small Scottish start-ups looking to make a difference. Before entering the IP profession, Graham worked in R&D for both multi-nationals and small spin-outs and was a named inventor on a number of patents before changing track to help others with their IP strategy and protection.

Thanks to MBN Solutions, Data Lab Scotland, and Scotland IS for sponsoring this event.

PHP Events In Scotland

PHP Events In Scotland

Electrify your evening with Lightning Talks

Tue 20 Nov 2018 06:30pm

Schedule

18:30 - 19:00 - Sign in, networking, drinks and food!

19:00 - Close - Lighting Talks and chat

We started this year with a Lighting Talk session, and with the year coming to an end, we thought we'd give you an opportunity to electrify your evening and talk about things you've learned since then in a friendly supportive environment.
You don't need to do a talk, feel free to come and watch too!

A lightning talk is just a short (5-10 minute) talk. It doesn't need to be polished, well rehearsed or fancy in any way. You can make it up on the spot if you like! Just to make sure we can get through everyone on the night, we will have a hard time limit of 15 minutes.

It can be about anything you like, here are some ideas but you are not limited to these at all! - A problem you recently solved at work, a library / framework or tool you've recently discovered, talks of interest at a conference you attended, something new you've just learned, a website you've recently launched, something that annoys you, something you love, a cool feature you've developed, a new solution to an old problem, something that's inspired you from another language or framework, something you want to learn more about.

Slides are not required at all, but you may wish to have one or more slides (the less slides the better).

If you have slides, have them on the Internet (ideally Google Slides) as there will be a single laptop connected to the TV for you to give your talk.

We have no idea how many of you will do a talk, so expect anything, but remember, we are our own audience and want each other to succeed!

Following the lighting talks we'll have a chat about all the things we heard, then head to a local pub for further discussions.

Postcode Lottery are kindly sponsoring the event and are providing drinks and snacks.
