Leeds Digital Festival 2018

Leeds Digital Festival 2018

The Leeds Digital Festival is a multi-venue, city-wide festival celebrating digital culture in all its form. With over 160 events, the Leeds Digital Festival 2018 reclaimed its moniker as the North’s largest digital festival covering topics such as cyber security, art, manufacturing and health.

Our clinical research fellow, Dr Kieran Zucker, presented as part of ‘Big Data Analytics in Health: The Challenges and Opportunities’. Kieran spoke about the need for analysis to be based on typical patients rather than the very select few that are eligible for randomised control trials. An engaged audience communicated their surprise that GP and hospital records are not linked and were impressed by the work that the project is doing.
