Perspectives on data, information, and mathematics

On Wednesday 7th of November there was a special colloquium on mathematics at the University of Plymouth.

Perspectives on data, information, and mathematics

Speaker: Professor Arieh Iserles (University of Cambridge)

Abstract: 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.
