The Isaac Newton Institute: Creating eureka moments

One of the most exciting places in the mathematical world is the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI), an international research centre and our neighbour here on the University of Cambridge's maths campus.
The INI attracts leading mathematical scientists from all over the world, and is open to all. We are proud to be collaborating with the INI to bring the cutting edge mathematics that is being done there to the general public. The following content is part of this collaboration.

Euromaths: Artur Avila

In the run up to the European Congress of Mathematics we continue our series of interviews with mathematicians who've won the prestigious Fields Medal. This week we hear from Artur Avila talking about his work on taming chaos.

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.

Protecting your data in the face of AI

Artificial intelligence algorithms are often trained on people's personal data. How can we make sure that this data remains private? 

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.

Euromaths: Alessio Figalli

In the run up to the European Congress of Mathematics we continue our series of interviews with mathematicians who've won the prestigious Fields Medal. This week we hear from Alessio Figalli talking about the theory of optimal transport.

Euromaths: James Maynard

In the run up to the European Congress of Mathematics we continue our series of interviews with mathematicians who've won the prestigious Fields Medal. This week we hear from James Maynard talking about the twin prime conjecture.

Euromaths: Hugo Duminil-CopinWe celebrate the run-up to the European Congress of Mathematics (ECM) with an interview of Hugo Duminil-Copin, who previously won a prize at the ECM.
The murmuration conjecture: finding new maths with AI

Artificial intelligence is changing all our lives - even the lives of mathematicians.  Yang-Hui He tells us about his exciting new conjecture that came about due to both artificial and human intelligence, and reveals patterns in the prime numbers that look like flocks of birds.

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.
