We invite all Liverymen, Freemen and Journeymen, their families, friends and colleagues to join us at our annual Installation Dinner in the surroundings of Haberdashers’ Hall, one of the Great Twelve Livery
Companies of the City of London. We will celebrate the installation of the Master for 2019-20,
Ray Long CB, as well as welcoming the new Wardens and our newly clothed Liverymen. Our guest speaker will be the Professor of IT at Gresham College, London, Richard Harvey. Richard trained as an electrical engineer and completed his PhD in statistical estimation. Richard worked as a defence scientist before joining the University of East Anglia (UEA) in 1993 where he is a Professor of Computer Science and runs a group of scientists conducting research in computer vision. He has authored over 100 publications in the areas of signal processing, computer vision and artificial intelligence. His current project involves teaching a computer to lip-read humans in multiple languages. Richard is also Academic Director of Admissions at UEA. He has had over ten years’ experience in these roles in which he is responsible for policy relating to the admission of all students and internationalisation. He recently founded a new network of universities called Aurora which is a group of highly research-intensive socially-engaged universities with some common values.
