Fourteen members of the Cardiff DAIS team are attending the programme’s Annual Fall Meeting (AFM) in upstate New York at the IBM Learning Center, Amonk. The AFM is an opportunity for the whole 15-parter collaboration to come together to share research results and take forward the various collaborations, as well as to receive feedback from the programme’s Peer Review panel. On Monday, members of the Cardiff contingent presented a number of contributions during this year’s AFM including:
