Differential privacy: Keeping your data safe

The age of Big Data poses a risk to our privacy as even anonymised data can sometimes be linked to individuals. Differential privacy provides a way of protecting sensitive information even when some of it is made public.

Maths in a minute: Stochastic gradient descent

How does artificial intelligence manage to produce reliable outputs? Stochastic gradient descent has the answer!

Keeping your data safe in the face of AI

The advent of artificial intelligence poses new threats to the privacy of our personal data.  We explore the challenges and a way to address them.

Generative AI: Examples of the future?

Here's a tour of some of the interesting things generative AI has achieved recently — from Hollywood to advertising!

AI and GoPro physics

Will AI one day be able to spot the equation that describes a physical process just by looking at a video of it? 

GO-Science National Numeracy Day challenge!

We're helping the Government Office for Science (GO Science) to bring you an Olympic challenge for National Numeracy Day! 

Happy Women in Maths Day!

We celebrate Women in Mathematics Day with a look at three amazing women from the history of mathematics.

Heads, Bayes wins!

If you've flipped heads 10 times what's the next flip most likely to be?  Bayes' theorem has the answer, not just for the coin, but for the pursuit of science generally.

Tails, Bayes loses (and invents data assimilation in the process)

Trying to make a prediction about the world based on dodgy data? Then data assimilation has the answer!

String theory: A promise from physics

Mathematics is an indispensable tool in physics, but can physics solve problem in maths? Find out more in this article.

String theory: Convincing mathematics

Find out how a theory from physics has provided tools for solving long-standing problems in number theory. And in turn how number theory helps solve the mystery of black holes.

Measles cases on the rise: Why this is worrying and what we can do


We look at the recent rise in measles cases, why it has led to a national health incident being declared, and what can be done to avert the threat.
