  3. The rest of the evening is then open for discussions and conversations over drinks – we expect a great mixture of attendees from the research, publishing and start-up communities. Plus there'll be free pizza!
  4. After the event (at around 9pm), we usually continue the discussions at a nearby pub, until everyone's all-talked-out. This time we're teaming up with ScholarlySocial and heading to The Fellow (which is just around the corner from the venue) :)

*Seeing as it's #FuturePub 7 and we had such an amazing group of people volunteering to speak, we've squeezed in an extra talk, to give you...

Meaning Driven Innovation (Copenhagen)
Event  May 23 09:00–14:00 · Copenhagen Flæsketorvet 26 1711 Copenhagen Denmark

During this hands-on workshop, we will take you through what we think is perhaps the easiest, fastest and most elegant way to innovate and run innovations.

We’ve been taught how to start innovation based upon customer needs or even our own desire to make a dent in the universe. Perhaps you already have good knowledge and techniques for ideation and product launch. We wont alter a comma in what you know or what you do. Rather, we invite you to look at innovation and the innovation process from a different angle. You’ll become more diverse, be able to include and lead more people, co-create with other businesses and reach solutions backed by a crowd who have their heart in it. The trick is to start from meaning. As you start your innovation process, you take a step back and not just go for the desired experience as the end result but right from the beginning! The day will end with you having a strategy and a plan for how you will use meaning driven innovation.

During the day, we’ll go through cases, examples and your ideas and experience. You’ll meet and network with likeminded professionals in an intensive and fun day.


Take-aways:
What is “meaning”?
How to use meaning when innovating
CoCreationCards - a simple method to turn an idea into an action plan
Mt. Innovation - a strategy for creating the product and the business model
Open Innovation and Co-creation
How to gather a crowd and have them contribute
Your unique strategy and plan for a meaning driven innovation process

Intelligent Crowdsourcing: Combining Machine Learning & Human Intelligence
Event  May 24 18:30–20:30 · Galvanize Seattle - Pioneer Square - 111 South Jackson Street, Seattle, WA 98104, United States


At Spare5 we are innovating in a different area of distributed computation than is typically familiar in the business computing world, combining human intelligence with artificial intelligence (AI). This is not traditional crowdsourcing - machine learning is used to target specific human users on domain-specific task types that they are good at, statistically estimate both answer quality and human user quality on particular tasks, automatically detect fraud, and optimize the process to provide the best value and quality of results to our customers. This talk will introduce types of tasks that intelligent crowdsourcing can really help with - both at the broad level regarding training data, SEO, and data cleaning, as well as at the narrow level regarding examples such as image titling, phone surveys, and web research. Two key themes in all these cases are accessing higher quality results than traditional crowdsourcing and doing so at scale. Come learn about a powerful new tool and fascinating yet nascent branch of data science!

This is a joint Meetup between Seattle Data Science and Seattle Data Analytics/Machine Learning.

Crowdsourcing Science, Parkinson's, and Stem Cells
Event  Jun 1 17:00–19:00 · Reuben H. Fleet Science Center Community Forum 1875 El Prado San Diego, CA 92101



Crowdsourcing Science, Parkinson's, and Stem Cells
Parkinson's disease (PD) affects more than a million people in the US. It is caused by the death of a specific type of nerve cell in the brain, the dopamine-producing neurons in a structure called the substantial nigra. These nerve cells control fine movements and their loss results in symptoms like tremor and difficulty walking. The disease is progressive and there is no cure. In 2012, a unique partnership of scientists, clinicians, PD patients, and patient advocates was formed to develop a therapy for PD using patients' own skin cells that can be transformed into dopamine neurons, which can then be transplanted to their brains to restore the lost cells. A foundation, called "Summit for Stem Cell" was launched with a climb by PD patients and their friends to the top of 19,341 ft. high Mount Kilimanjaro. Contributions from thousands of people have enabled the Loring lab to perform the preclinical research required for applying to the FDA for approval to conduct a clinical trial. With further support from the foundation and granting agencies, the research and clinical partners hope to transplant cells to the first patient in about three years. This kind of partnership with patient advocates is unprecedented, and is inspiring for both the researchers and the patients, who are working together to develop the first effective therapy for PD.

The 2016 Healthcare NOVELTY
Event  Jun 3 08:30–17:30 · Michael Joseph Centre - Nairobi City, Nairobi KE


The Healthcare NOVELTY is a platform where Health professionals shape trends in Healthcare by exchanging fresh knowledge to improve public health services and produce social value.

Data for Development Results
Event  Jun 8 09:00 – Jun 9 18:00 · TBD - TBD TBD, Istanbul 34381, Turkey


In recent years, countries in the region have benefited from an upsurge in internet connectivity, the rise of citizen engagement in demands for good governance, digital activism and community-centered development. Responding to such trends, governments in the region are developing new open government policies and opening their data. Many of them have started this process, including as part of the Open Government Partnership (OGP)[1] and are facing challenges in achieving the desired outcomes: services tailored to the needs of citizens, lower misuse of and barriers to access public resources and decision-making, higher diversity and more competition in the private sector, and an overall better informed society. A number of countries in the region place further alignment and integration with the EU as their top priority which is also helping to drive reform efforts.

New technologies present fresh opportunities for bringing citizen voice to the fore–to democratise the way that information, news and views about development is collected, curated and used. And, new mechanisms to promote people-powered accountability – from citizen reporting on key development outcomes to crowdsourcing opinion on how people perceive progress – are popping up around the world. These citizen-generated initiatives hint at the potential of the data revolution to deepen our understanding of development, the governance of societies and hold all stakeholders to account.
