Our Data Tech Director’s role on the ASC Committee

March 24, 2019

We’re proud to support the role our Data Tech Director, Matt Gibbs, has on the Association for Survey Computing Committee.  Here’s his take on why the association is important to him, us and the industry as a whole…

No research agency is an island!  At Painted Dog Research we know that plugging into the wider world of research innovation is essential if we’re to progress and stay at the cutting edge.  That’s one reason I’m very happy to play a role on the Association for Survey Computing (ASC) committee; the world’s leading society for the advancement of knowledge in software and technology for research and statistics.

The next ASC conference in London (May 16th) is a great example of how the ASC has inspired knowledge-share across the industry for several decades.  “The Future is Now” will provide a wide ranging overview of the current impact of technology on research techniques.  Expert speakers will discuss panel hackers, data visualisation, communities, global trends, chatbots, VideoMR, AI and Machine Learning.

Just like us at Painted Dog Research, the ASC believes that diverse opinion enriches our discussion & tries hard to encourage it.  Discounts are offered to independent researchers (ICG members), individual MR professionals (MRS members) & the ASC supports Women in Research’s (WIRe) 50/50 conference initiative.

The event page lists a formidable line-up from across the industry covering some very hot topics.  Read on for a summary of speakers, and watch this space for a review in the coming weeks!
