Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and are free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.


The UK has led the way in publishing vast quantities of open data, but what’s stopping us from making better use of it? The biggest issue we now face is raising quality, not quantity. In this talk we’ll discuss what makes a good, quality dataset, and we’ll use automated data visualisation to illustrate their power and beauty.

John Griffin is the founder of Atchai, a consultancy specialising in data-driven applications and developers of the interactive data visualisation platform, Dataseed.
