2.1 How the programme progresses
The programme takes the form of a visit to Glasgow. We talked to people and asked about their image(s) of Glasgow and whether these had changed – what was the ‘old’ image; what is the ‘new’; how has it changed; what will it be like in another ten years?
The five main participants have different experiences of Glasgow and these are represented in the images which they hold and aspects of the city's character which they highlight. The themes and ideas behind the programme are al

Sexual Politics and Revolution: Emma Goldman's Passion [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Clare Hemmings | This paper charts the significance of Emma Goldman's revolutionary thought for a contemporary analysis of sexuality, gender and revolt. Throughout her life (1869-1940) and work Goldman centred sexuality as both key to how capitalism functions (particularly for women) and as a privileged site for political transformation. Connecting sexuality to labour, Goldman's analyses of reproduction, prostitution, homosexuality and free love provide a helpful challenge

6.2 A systematic approach to risk assessment
In Section 4 of this course you learned of the immense value of information to modern organisations. However, without a storage medium of some kind – paper, a hard disk, a white board, a human memory – information is entirely ephemeral. Once recorded in a medium, though, information endures and can be manipulated; but it also becomes subject to the vulnerabilities of that medium and of the systems that access that medium. And once there are vulnerabilities, there are threats to the securi
Using Predictive Models to Improve Healthcare
Machine learning applied to large medical datasets can lead to the development of better risk stratification models for adverse outcomes. Unfortunately, general-purpose analytics developed across unrelated domains hold limited value for the specialized needs of patients, payors, providers, pharmaceutical companies and device manufacturers. This talk will outline why health care data is different, and discuss some of the techniques we have developed to deal with the challenges posed by these diff
