Run by Nottingham Skeptics in the Pub, I thought this might be of 
interest to some on here. From the main page:
	Big Data knows where you’ve been and who your friends are. It knows 
what you like and what makes you angry. It can predict what you’ll buy, 
where you’ll be the victim of crime and when you’ll have a heart attack. 
Big Data knows you better than you know yourself, or so it claims.
But how well do you know big data?

Being held at the Canalhouse which does good food and drinks ("Bitburger 
Drive" is available for drivers and is palatable). Access to the upper 
conference area is via an external door beyond the main door (there’s 
usually a sign out). There is a smaller bar upstairs, but it’s not 
normally open until after the talk, so best fuel up in the main bar 
before heading up (exit via main door, take hard right, go up the stairs).
