Chris Bishop is a Microsoft Technical Fellow and the Laboratory Director at Microsoft Research Cambridge. He is also Professor of Computer Science at the University of Edinburgh, and a Fellow of Darwin College, Cambridge. In 2004, he was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, in 2007 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and in 2017 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society. Chris obtained a BA in Physics from Oxford, and a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the University of Edinburgh, with a thesis on quantum field theory. He then joined Culham Laboratory where he worked on the theory of magnetically confined plasmas as part of the European controlled fusion programme. From there, he developed an interest in pattern recognition, and became Head of the Applied Neurocomputing Centre at AEA Technology. He was subsequently elected to a Chair in the Department of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at Aston University, where he led the Neural Computing Research Group. Chris then took a sabbatical during which time he was principal organiser of the six month international research programme on Neural Networks and Machine Learning at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, which ran in 1997. After completion of the Newton Institute programme Chris joined the Microsoft Research Laboratory in Cambridge. Learn more about Christopher Bishop on Crunchbase…

Dame Wendy Hall, DBE, FRS, FREng, is Regius Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southampton, and is Executive Director of the Web Science Institute. She was Dean of the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Engineering from 2010 to 2014. She is Managing Director of the Web Science Trust. One of the first computer scientists to undertake serious research in multimedia and hypermedia, she has been at its forefront ever since. The influence of her work has been significant in many areas including digital libraries, the development of the Semantic Web, and the emerging research discipline of Web Science. Her current research includes applications of the Semantic Web and exploring the interface between the life sciences and the physical sciences. In addition to playing a prominent role in the development of her subject, she also helps shape science and engineering policy and education. Through her leadership roles on national and international bodies, she has shattered many glass ceilings, readily deploying her position on numerous national and international bodies to promote the role of women in SET, and acting as an important role model for others.

Kerstin Eder is a Reader in Design Automation and Verification at the University of Bristol. She holds a PhD in Computational Logic, an MSc in Artificial Intelligence and an MEng in Informatics. She has been active in Design Verification since 1997, gaining experience in both academic research and during regular industrial secondments where she joined verification teams as design verification engineer. At the University of Bristol Kerstin introduced the Design Verification curriculum at Master level in 2002, teaching state-of-the-art verification techniques supported by labs with industrial verification tools. Her research includes specification, verification and analysis methods that allow designers to define a system and to verify/explore its behaviour in terms of functional correctness, performance, power consumption and energy efficiency. She has recently launched a series of workshops on Energy-Aware Computing (EACO). At the Bristol Robotics Laboratory she develops approaches towards certification of autonomous systems. In the next six months Kerstin is kick-starting three new research projects, one on Whole System Energy Transparency, one on Verification of Autonomous Systems and one on Safety of Human Assistive Robots. At TVS Kerstin provides consultancy to develop professional training materials for the latest dynamic and static verification methods and contributes to the development of advanced verification methodologies.
