This event celebrates the launch of an exciting new research Institute which is a collaboration between the Cantab Capital Partners LLP and the University of Cambridge. Hosted within the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Cambridge, the Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information will push the boundaries of information science.
Established through philanthropic support of £5 million from Cantab Capital Partners, the Institute will accommodate research activity on fundamental mathematical problems and methodology for understanding, analysing, processing and simulating data. Data science research performed in the Institute will be on the highest international level, aiming to extract the relevant information from large-and high-dimensional data with a predictable certainty.
At the heart of the Institute, will be the fundamental mathematical techniques and their intra-disciplinary engagement, upon which, the solution of big data questions so heavily relies. This is crucial in order to ensure advancements in data science.
