COVID-19 measures

At Learning Pool, the health and safety of our staff, customers, partners and friends are our utmost priority. We’ve been working with the venue to ensure that all the necessary safety measures and precautions are in place for Learning Pool Live 2021 should we need them. We are closely monitoring the situation to ensure the event can take place as safely as possible in line with government guidelines.

With the vaccine being rolled out and the hope that events will be able to take place without restrictions from 19 July, we are confident that we will be able to run the event without having to take some of these measures by October, but rest reassured that we have a plan B!

In order to go ahead with this event, Learning Pool will follow The Brewery’s safety policies as well as local guidelines and restrictions. We will take direction from the Government and events industry on capacity and new behavioral and hygiene guidelines, for example widely available sanitizer dispensers and a socially distanced seating plan to ensure the safety of all who wish to attend.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update this page and delegates with any new information.

Hannah Fry
Professor in the Mathematics of Cities, Author and Broadcaster
Hannah Fry is a mathematician and broadcaster. She is a senior lecturer in the Mathematics of Cities at University College London. Hannah examines the incredible insights data can provide, but also where its limitations are, highlighting the biases within data and how the tools used to collect and interpret it can often betray very human prejudices. Connecting many of these key issues is artificial intelligence. Hannah also examines how AI is revealing incredible new insights and developing more effective processes, but also considers its often-overlooked shortcomings and unjustified hype. Looking at the realities of the revolutionary ideas behind AI she considers the controversies, ethical considerations, and the scare-stories, as she does in her book Hello World: How to be Human in the Age of the Machine.
