Confirmed Abstracts[edit]

Piracy - A Study of Pirates and Their Influence on Pop Culture[edit]

Speaker: Matt Collins

Misleading titles are fun.

I did this years ago in a comedy club. May update it slightly or just reuse what Ive already got.

Potential Talks[edit]

The Below Talks May Not Appear at This Event but will be Cycled to the next event or at the speakers discretion

Hello Computer[edit]

Speaker: Niall McLaughlin

Not really an abstract but here's some ideas. I'm nearing the end of my PhD now, so I could probably give a talk on some of my research. I don't know if would be as interesting to other people as to me...

During my PhD I've been working on robust biometrics - speaker recognition that's robust to substantial background noise and facial recognition, robust to severe lighting variation. While my research itself is probably not suitable for a general audience, I could give a talk on the generalities of how, for example, facial recognition works - hopefully without getting bogged down into too much maths!
