On the 13th June, the CCIMI hosted its annual research workshop, this year focused on Geometric and Topological Approaches to Data Analysis.

This one day conference brought together those academics working to advance data science and provided an update on the research and collaborations taking place at CCIMI, associated challenges and other potential collaborative opportunities, as well as highlighting projects being developed elsewhere related to data analysis.  Attendees from across academia and more industry focused research centres attended.  The day featured a number of excellent presenters, including Ulrike Tillmann (University of Oxford), Marco Cuturi (Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et de l’Administration Economique (ENSAE)), (Google Brain), Angkana Ruland (Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik, Leipzig) & Laurent Younes (Johns Hopkins University).  CCIMI students also presented their work in the form of short 5-minute ‘elevator pitches’ along with presenting posters, allowing the opportunity for further discussion over these during the lunch and coffee breaks.


The event was held at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences and delivered in partnership with the Newton Gateway to Mathematics.  Further information, including the programme with recordings and presentations from many of the talks is available from the NGM website.
