Second Machine Learning JEDI workshop

We are pleased to invite applications for the second Machine Learning JEDI workshop: The ethos of the JEDI workshops ( is to transfer skills primarily by actively working on real-world research problems in small groups rather than through lectures. Unlike the previous Machine Learning workshop, we will focus on a single real-world problem which involves both

‘Mathematics Iff Computing’ workshop – 14-18 July 2014

You know how to program a computer or use software as a tool to help do applied maths: finding eigenvalues; solving algebraic or differential equations; and plotting solutions. But do you realise that software is being used to help do the latest Pure Mathematics? Convoluted and even high-dimensional surfaces can be understood by graphical representations

IMO Training Camp

58 contestants from 12 African countries gathered at AIMS South Africa for a final training camp before they had to solve six mathematical problems within nine hours during the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) at UCT on 8 and 9 July. The IMO is the world championship mathematics competition for youths under 20 hosted by a
