Isaac Newton Institute

The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information (CCIMI) held its annual Industry engagement day in November 2019. This aimed to showcase the research that is being carried out at the Institute and it enabled delegates to hear more detail about some of the current project collaborations and industry challenges that CCIMI is exploring.

This event followed the previous industry and academic engagement events delivered since 2016 and more information is available on the Gateway initiatives webpage.

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 industrial engagement event was to provide an update on research and collaborations taking place at the CCIMI, as well as presenting interesting research being developed elsewhere.

The talks highlighted research taking place at CCIMI, with associated industrial speakers and looked to explore the big questions in data science, especially where mathematics is most suited to help provide answers.  As in previous years, there was also a session hosted by CCIMI students which they developed and delivered as a group.

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.

Poster Session

All delegates were invited to exhibit a poster. Students and early career researchers (within 7 years of completing their last degree) were particularly encouraged to bring a poster and discuss their work at the exhibition that ran during the lunch and networking sessions. A prize was awarded for the most enlightening poster by a student/ early career researcher. This years winner was Kirill Kalinin, University of Cambridge.

Registration and Venue

Attendance was free of charge.
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.
