Wednesday 22nd November 2017

Isaac Newton Institute

United Kingdom


The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information (CCIMI) held an Industry engagement day in November 2017. This event aimed to showcase the research that is being carried out at the Institute and presented an opportunity to hear in detail about some of the current project collaborations, other industry challenges and explore new potential collaborations.
This event followed the previous industry and academic engagement events delivered in November 2016 and May 2017.

The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information accommodates research activity on fundamental mathematical problems and methodology for understanding, analysing, processing and simulating data. Data science research performed in the Institute is at the highest international level, aiming to extract the relevant information from large and high-dimensional data with a predictable certainty. For more detailed information on projects, please see the CCIMI website.

Aims and Objectives

The main focus of this one day conference event was as an industrial engagement day that provided an update on research and collaborations taking place at CCIMI, as well as highlighting projects being developed elsewhere.
The talks highlighted research taking place at CCIMI, with associated industrial engagements and looked to explore the big questions in data science where mathematics is most suited to help provide answers.

There was the opportunity to present at a poster exhibition, which ran during the lunch and the networking sessions and the event closed with a facilitated panel session, followed by a drinks reception.

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

Registration and Venue

Attendance was free.

The workshop took place at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge. Please see the Isaac Newton Institute website for further information about the venue.
