Joint Pure-Applied Colloquium (Arieh Iserles, Cambridge)

November 7, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0

Perspectives on data, information and mathematics

The data and information revolution is changing our lives: the way we socialise, shop, elect our leaders and conduct our research. Its impact ranges across all different academic disciplines. Yet, its engine room is mathematics — a set of emerging methodologies in statistics, computation and pure mathematics. In this talk I will attempt to explain in a non-technical manner this New Brave World, demystify phrases like “deep learning”, “imaging”, “sparse recovery” and “inverse problems”, describing how mathematics is transforming “Big Data” and how “Big Data” is transforming mathematics.
