What our expert trainers say
Our Futures partners are some of the leaders in the field. This is what they say about working with HDR UK.
“Working with HDR UK has been fantastic. The bitesize videos are short and enjoyable pieces of key information in data science. They allow efficient information uptake across the research community and beyond,” Fatemeh Torabi – Research Officer and Data Scientist at HDR UK-Wales Swansea University (pictured)
“Bitesize videos are an excellent way to summarise key information in an engaging format in a fast-moving world. I am passionate about diversity in health data and I find great alignment with HDR UK’s objectives in this regard,” Shikta Das – OneHealth Tech
“As an early supporter of the L7 Data Science and AI Standard, HDR UK has helped us signpost the opportunity for healthcare professionals to upskill and progress their career development in this area,” Dr Raoul-Gabriel Urma – Founder & CEO Cambridge Spark
“A bitesize video makes information more ‘alive’,” Sophia Luu – OneHealth Tech (pictured)
“We were interested in working with HDR UK as we had a common interest in privacy preserving technologies such as Fully Homomorphic Encryption. Building a short video about FHE was really appealing as a way of introducing a wider audience to this exciting technology,” Russ Daniel – IBM Research
