Aridhia will be taking centre stage with its collaborative data science platform, AnalytiXagility at the Greater Manchester’s Data Dive on 22nd July.

The event, hosted by the University of Manchester School of Informatics at The Landing, MediaCityUK, aims to widen the insights that can be gained from data analytics, with participants invited to compete in teams to test the boundaries of what insights open data can yield.

Support will be provided by mentors and data science experts, including members of the data science team at Aridhia, while the AnalytiXagility platform will be made available to everyone to use on the day.

Dr Andy Judson, Aridhia’s Director of Data Science is among the experts attending the event.

Speaking about Aridhia’s involvement, he said: “There is huge potential for skilled data analysts in the healthcare sector so we are keen to support events that encourage more people to learn about health informatics and data science. We need to get people excited about the potential of data to enable analysis, insight and, ultimately, to drive change.”

He continued: “Aridhia’s collaborative data science platform can facilitate collaboration within the data science community and we are really looking forward to seeing the ideas for using data that people come up with at the event.”
