AI3SD Semantics & Knowledge Learning for Chemical Design Workshop (10:00)

10:00 - 18:00

Additional Place Info: Solent Conference Centre, Southampton
Designing chemicals, discovering new drugs, discovering materials and indeed all aspects of scientific discovery are all tasks that are highly data driven, and semantic web technologies are key to enabling researchers to deal with high levels of data in a useful and meaningful way. Semantic technologies facilitate representing data in a formal, structured, and interoperable way, and enable data to be reasoned over to infer potential relationships. In this workshop we seek to explore the ways in which semantic web technologies can be used to drive predictions in chemical design, including using Machine Learning and other AI techniques to exploit semantic links in knowledge graphs and linked datasets. There will be several keynote talks, an expert panel chaired by Professor Jeremy Frey, and a chance for breakout discussions. Lunch will be provided and the day will end with networking drinks.

Lawrence Power concludes his first year as Turner Sims Associate Artist with an evening of emotive 19th-century chamber music by Brahms, presented on the composer’s birth date. He performs Brahms’ viola and violin sonatas with Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov, making his second appearance of the season, and who in 2012 won one of the world’s most prestigious piano prizes, the Honens International Piano Competition. Brahms loved the sonorous sounds of the viola, and shortly after submitting a series of clarinet sonatas to his publisher, he offered versions written for viola to be published at the same time. The composer’s three violin sonatas, written between 1878 and 1886, are seductively lyrical, from the G major with its famous ‘raindrop’ final movement to the complex, eerie D minor.

Exhibits and other interactive media have been the mainstay of the museum sector for years and are increasingly being viewed as potential ways of engaging the public with research. Traditionally a dissemination tool, modern technology and having the exhibit as part of the process rather than a one-off allow exhibits to have the potential to spark a lifetime of engagement or involvement.

This session will explore the pitfalls and rewards of exhibit creation through participant created cardboard prototypes and will hopefully give clarity on whether an exhibit should be in your Impact toolkit. Be warned, there will be crafting in this session!

*Participants will be using glue guns, scissors and cardboard to create exhibit prototypes about their research*

This event is part of the University's 'Impact Month' running throughout May 2019 and co-ordinated by Research and Innovation Services (RIS) – see here for the full list of sessions going on in May: https://sotonac.sharepoint.com/teams/ResearcherPortal/_layouts/15/Event.aspx?ListGuid=4482979e-ce94-499a-b038-e024ae3cbee0&ItemId=23

The HEAL Montgomery Lecture - ‘Medical Brethren’: From the Monasteries to Montgomery (18:00)

‘Medical Brethren’: From the Monasteries to Montgomery
 

English law has engaged with health care since medieval times. ‘Medical’ law is far from new. Patients (rich and poor) have sought access to healing of many forms. Central to debates across the centuries and the focus of this lecture is the role of ‘medical brethren’ and the status and privileges of medical practitioners.
Beginning with the late medieval era, I shall first deal with the Church as both the source of authority relating to what we would now classify as bioethics and also the principal provider of health care. I shall seek to demonstrate that the rights and obligations of the religious brethren were not as alien as might be expected, not wholly different to Montgomery and Montgomery. I shall then address the impact of the dissolution of the monasteries and the battles between the several different sorts of secular healers. The notion that the common law judges have from time immemorial deferred to their medical brethren will be challenged, with the aid of Sir Edward Coke. The quest by the orthodox practitioners, physicians, surgeons and apothecaries to be seen as learned gentlemen will be charted and its pernicious effects explored. Finally exiting the time machine, I shall offer some comments on the relationship between professionals and patients today and the persistent influence of religion and spirituality in modern debates on bioethics. Invoking the work of Jonathan Montgomery, I shall contend that the dicta in the decision of the Supreme Court in Montgomery likening patients to consumers are to be treated with the utmost care. The lecture will also address the oft overlooked fact that long before Elizabeth Garrett Anderson won the right to be entered on the Medical Register in 1865, not all medical practitioners were ‘brethren.’ The medical ‘sorority ‘has too often been forgotten.
 

Speaker

Professor Brazier’s work has covered the understanding of the Regulation of medical practice and medical ethics; the Analysis of how ethical considerations can or should be reflected in Law and mutual rights and responsibilities of doctors and patients. Her work in these three main areas has not only set the standard, but has also set the agenda. In addition to this she was Editor in Chief of Medical Law Review, the leading academic journal addressing healthcare law in the UK until 2011. She has also chaired several influential

The legendary saxophonist brings his latest project to Turner Sims. The Steve Williamson Experience provides a unique journey around the sonic potential of music as a true art form that can change our state and make us feel better. Through his lifelong study of harmonics, Steve creates music that soothes and heals as well as entertains. He uses primordial tones that speak directly to the essence of who we are, blending Classical and Jazz to create an entrancing, life-enhancing, soul advancing combination that will have you leave the concert a different person to the one that arrived. So join us to witness one of Britain’s greatest musical achievements, Steve Williamson, who alongside his trio, is joined by jazz string quartet, StringTing to create a unique, compelling DNA level musical experience. If you could listen to Virtual Reality, this is what it would sound like! StringTing is a flagship ensemble from Tomorrow’s Warriors, the celebrated hothouse for young jazz talent in the UK. Mentored by acclaimed bassist and artistic director, Gary Crosby OBE, StringTing are blazing a wide trail for women and strings in jazz.

The partnership of John Etheridge and Christian Garrick has been described as One of the most potent combinations in European Jazz (Jazzwise) and the rhythm team of Dave Kelbie and Andy Crowdy the Rolls Royce and Jaguar of rhythm sections. The music is inspired by the classic sounds of Django Reinhardt and Grappelli, whose legendary partnership galvanised European Jazz. Expect a dazzling and varied mixture of standards, American swing, Latin American and original compositions played with wit, humour and virtuosity, alongside affectionate and often funny reminiscences of John’s time with Grappelli – a man who was eccentric, inspired, and highly individual.

Prime Minister: I never sleep much. Queen: Oh dear. I like the idea of any person with the power to start a nuclear war being rested. For 60 years, the Queen has met her Prime Minister every week. An audience at Buckingham Palace. Both parties agree never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses. What is discussed? What secrets are shared? Does her Majesty have her favourites? Sometimes intimate, often confessional, occasionally explosive, The Audience imagines the private moments that define a changing Britain. One head of state. Endless heads of government. This play asks where the real power lies.

‘No, Alice, I don’t want to become a man, I just want to stop trying to be a woman.’ Following a critically-acclaimed West End run Jon Brittain's Rotterdam is embarking on a UK tour. It's New Year in Rotterdam, and Alice has finally plucked up the courage to email her parents and tell them she's gay. But before she can hit send, her girlfriend Fiona reveals that he has always identified as a man and now wants to start living as one named Adrian. As Adrian begins his transition, Alice must face a question she never thought she'd ask... does this mean she's straight? A bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home from writer Jon Brittain, co-creator of Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho, and writer of What Would Spock Do?, The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo and NST's Christmas show Billionaire Boy The Musical. ★★★★ “Smartly observed and very funny… warm and emotionally intelligent” - Evening Standard ★★★★“Brittain’s play is another reminder - warm, witty and wise - of the stupidity of thinking that there are only two genders” - Time Out

Sometimes, one supergroup comes along that really is very special indeed. Assembled by award-winning jazz pianist Nikki Iles, and brought together by their collective love of song, The Printmakers’ music defies category and sets out to cross the boundaries that traditionally separate jazz, folk and the contemporary music world. Their 2015 release on Basho Records, Westerly, was received with huge critical acclaim. In the old days, this band would have had the words ‘All-Stars’ in their name. Every one of them is a leading figure in British contemporary jazz… It’s remarkable how just five instruments and voice can suggest space and depth as they do. The Observer It struck me, listening to Nikki Iles’ Printmakers band that if the British Council or whoever wanted to share with the world the jazz of this country, then this would be the ideal band. It feels like the most modern and vital vehicle for all those essential core qualities of the best British jazz. The Jazz Breakfast

The first of two recitals (the second coming in October as part of the Autumn 2019 season) by Angela Hewitt, the outstanding Bach pianist of her generation (The Sunday Times) surveying the composer’s complete English Suites. Although it is not clear why they have come to be known as ‘English’, these earliest of Bach’s keyboard suites – firmly in the French style – show off the composer’s versatility, writing in the dance idioms of several countries. The incomplete Suite in F Minor, its courtly prelude and richly textured sarabande culminating in a short gigue, follows the English Suites, and the programme ends with the stormy, unpredictable Prelude and Fugue in A Minor.

2019-06-14T19:30:00+01:002019-06-14T19:30:00+01:00
In this, the 60th Anniversary of one of the world's most iconic music venues, the Ronnie Scott's All Stars take to the road to celebrate the 'Ronnie Scott's Story'. Direct from London’s world-famous jazz club and combining world class live jazz alongside rare archive photos and video footage, The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, take you on a guided, musical tour of this music institution. Set amongst the dive bars and jazz jook joints of London’s Soho, we hear about the desperate hand-to-mouth finances of the early years and the frequent police raids. We hear how Ronnie's became neutral ground within rife gang territory and their scrapes with gangsters including the Krays who were rumoured to have taken Ronnie and Pete “for a little drive”! Life at Ronnie’s is evocatively re-imagined through tales of the club’s past visitors, from pop stars, film stars and politicians to comedians and royalty, but above all, the musicians. Featuring classic music from the jazz greats who have performed at Ronnie Scott’s, projected images and footage, and tales of old Soho, miscreant musicians and police raids, ‘The Ronnie Scott’s Songbook’ is a glimpse into this unique world and its incredible history. Hosted and performed by the award-winning Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, led by the Club’s Musical Director, this is a unique evening celebrating the music and history of Ronnie Scott’s and is a must for any music fan. ‘Outstanding players. For poise, balance and swing they’re a joy to listen to’- The Observer ‘Full-on brilliance’ - The Guardian

As the war rages and the years pass, the country grows more oppressive and so does Rasheed. But the bonds of love, family and friendship may offer the only escape and drive them to overcome the most daunting obstacles. From the writer of The Kite Runner, this is a powerful story of three generation of women discovering strength in unity.

One day. Six cities. A thousand stories. For generations, African men have gathered in barber shops. Sometimes they have haircuts, sometimes they listen, more often than not they talk. Barber shops are confession boxes, political platforms, preacher-pulpits and football pitches... places to go for unofficial advice, and to keep in touch with the world. Fuel has produced Inua Ellams’ work for theatre since his debut play nine years ago. Barber Shop Chronicles is a heart-warming, hilarious and insightful play, set in Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, Accra and London. The play invites the audience into a uniquely masculine environment where the banter may be barbed, but the truth always telling. The barbers of these tales are sages, role models and father figures, they are the glue that keeps men together. ★★★★★ "Joyous piece of theatre" Independent ★★★★★ The Stage
