This is London's first (only?) meetup focusing on data structures and algorithms, regardless of programming language or application domain.
Sorry, looks like The London Big-O Meetup haven't got any events scheduled for the moment!

The Quest for Understanding the Real World With Synthetic Data - Ankur Handa
Featuring Ankur Handa
Ankur Handa is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge with Roberto Cipolla. Prior to that he obtained his PhD with Andrew Davison at Imperial College London and before that he finished his undergraduate at IIIT-Hyderabad. He now work at the intersection of SLAM and deep...big-o data reactive functional-programming
Implementing and Optimising Functional Reactive Programming - Henrik Nilsson
Featuring Henrik Nilsson
This talk discusses how arrows-based Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) languages can be implemented purely functionally and how their performance can be improved, using the embedded FRP implementation Yampa as an example.The talk also considers the related notion of Commutative Causal Arrows...functional-programming programming-languages reactive reactive-programming
Greatest Common Divisors: Attacks on RSA and Post-Quantum Security
Featuring Martin Albrecht
Martin plans to present a simple encryption scheme which unlike RSA is believed to be secure against quantum computers. For this, he will start with revisiting how RSA encryption works, why the well-known textbook RSA is insecure, how RSA fails in practice when poor random number generators are...big-o quantum-security security google-chrome algorithm
Real-time localisation and mapping for mobile robots
Featuring Stefan Leutenegger
Mobile robots have gained much popularity recently, with applications ranging from domestic settings to industrial inspection and autonomous driving. In order to accomplish any useful task, however, robots need dedicated sensing capabilities paired with suitable algorithms for localisation inside...mobile robots mobile-robots
SAT Solvers and Range Anxiety
Featuring Mate Soos
In this presentation, Mate plans to talk about the base of all NP-complete problems, the satisfiability problem, how these problems are being solved with state-of-the-art SAT solvers, and how that is relevant to our everyday lives. SAT solvers have enjoyed a boom thanks to massive improvements...big-o sat-solver data-structures algorithms graph-algorithm heuristics bigdata
Algorithms for intelligent vehicles
Featuring Peter Ondruska
In this talk we will look at a new algorithmic solution mitigating the effect of "range-anxiety" of electric vehicle owners, i.e. the fear of running out of the battery. We first employ automatic machine learning to learn how different drivers affect consumption of an electric car. We...algorithms big-o intelligent-vehicles electric-cars machine-learning
The Lisp in Machine
Featuring Joe Nash
Haskell provides a lot of abstractions that make it a very expressive, and very safe, programming language. But some of these abstractions can come back to haunt us. In this talk, we'll investigate some neat features of the purely functional, statically typed language, and performance...probabilistic-programing big-o scala machine-learning
An introduction to modelling uncertainty with Gaussian Processes
Featuring Karl Surmacz
Modelling uncertainty allows us to quantify risk, optimize robustly, and ultimately make better-informed decisions. In this talk Karl will motivate this approach and introduce the concept of Gaussian processes for regression and classification. He will show some practical applications of Gaussian...big-o gaussian-process
