10:15 AM – 10:45​ AM​​​ Guest Keynote: How to be Human in the Age of the Machine »
Dr Hannah Fry
Associate Professor in the Mathematics, Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL. Author and Broadcaster

We like to think of ourselves as master decision makers; as perfectly rational creatures, grounded in reason and logic. It’s a nice idea, but the reality is rather different. In truth, humans are a mess. There's a lot going on with us: competing incentives, dodgy memories and blind, impulsive biases.

The modern era of data analytics is, in some sense, an attempt to automate our decision making, iron out some of the fallibilities and biases built in to our choices. But decisions driven by data have blind spots too. And all this leaves us to a conundrum: humans are flawed, machines are flawed. So who do we want to leave in charge of our decision making? And how should we think about the interface between the two to bring about the best possible partnership between human and machine?

10:45 AM – 11:15 AM​​​ Single View of the Customer: BT Consumer and the Analytics Eco-System »
Presenters: Interview with Claire Ellison (Snr Head of Data Analytics) and Mike Gulvin (Data Visualisation lead), BT Group

Hear more about the BT Ecosystem Vision: the need to modernise our aging reporting estate and implement an all-encompassing landscape of customer insights, exploiting the 95% of customer data we have but don’t utilise. The challenge is that multiple brands are coming together, all with their own source systems, and it becomes more difficult to arrive at a single view of a customer. The vast data resources available from all the areas of business needs to be brought to life in meaningful, visual, insights. Mike will describe the unique implementation approach taken to build dedicated lenses for our business areas, linking to reusable Qlik apps to allow business users to drill into detail as required, and passing filters used so they see only the cohort of data of interest. Exploiting reuse has accelerated development, and offers a consistent approach for users. Adopting a design approach where any analytics is available in as few steps as possible.
