Nuclear Data - The Original Big Data Challenge
Speaker: Allan Simpson (National Nuclear Laboratory)
Ever since Rutherford split the atom, understanding the probabilities that define our nuclear age has been critical to our application of nuclear technology. In this seminar, Allan Simpson of the National Nuclear Laboratory will take you on a journey to discover just why the data that helps us understand the inner workings of nuclear reactors, the evolution of stars or treat cancer patients in our hospitals is the original big data challenge and just why we'll be seeking perfection for years to come.
These talks are open to everyone and are sponsored by the West Midlands Branch of the IOP.
