Newton Gateway Case Studies

The Newton Gateway works with external partners to deliver activity and events. The case studies below highlight Programmes of Work where the Newton Gateway partnered with Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling, the KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network), the Maths Foresees Network, BAE Systems, Microsoft Research, the University of Cambridge and the Judicial System.

Probability and Statistics in Forensic Science

In 2016, the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI) ran a six month Research Programme on Probability and Statistics in Forensic Science. The Programme aimed to try to tackle the problems around the rudimentary and often flawed way that probative value of forensic evidence is presented in Courts. In particular, where probative value is presented in probabilistic and statistical terms there have been numerous instances of misunderstanding leading to miscarriages of justice.
