Background

The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information (CCIMI) held its annual Industry engagement event on the 24th November 2021. 

Launched in 2016, CCIMI accommodates research activity on fundamental mathematical problems and methodology for understanding, analysing, processing and simulating data. Data science research performed in the Institute is of the highest international level, aiming to extract the relevant information from large and high-dimensional data with a predictable certainty.

This event follows previous successful academic and industrial engagement events, which have focused on different aspects related to the mathematics of information. 

Aims and Objectives

This conference brought together those academics working to advance data science and will aim to showcase the research that is being carried out at the Institute and enable delegates to hear more detail about some of the current project collaborations and industry challenges that CCIMI is exploring. Additionally, it will highlight other potential collaborative opportunities, as well as projects being developed elsewhere related to data analysis. 

There was a session of short “elevator pitches” from next generation researchers as well as a poster session by some registered delegates. 

This event was of interest to participants including economists; social scientists; physicists; engineers; biomedical scientists as well as those working in statistics; pure, applied & computational analysis; quantum computing, cryptography, communication & security and those from data processing. 

Registration and Venue

Talks were aimed at academics, and a mathematical background was assumed, however, attendees from industry and the public sector were welcomed. 
The event took place in a hybrid format and we were delighted to welcome some attendees in-person to the INI.
