Research Rendezvous: An online showcase of exciting research from across the University alongside guest talks from industry and independent organisations. The C2D3 Virtual Symposium 2020 Research Rendezvous seeks to spark new research questions, create new collaborations and connect distant parts of the data science community at the University and beyond. Our audience will be diverse with delegates from across academia, industry, independent organisations, local councils.
If you were asked to name some companies at the cutting edge of data science, the likes of Google, Amazon and Facebook might spring to mind. Insurance companies like Aviva might not.
Yet insurance has been ahead of this particular curve for decades. After all it’s a business which has been running on big data and algorithms long before these disciplines became part of our collective consciousness.
The Cambridge Centre for Data-Driven Discovery (C2D3) brings together researchers and expertise from across the academic departments and industry to drive research into the analysis, understanding and use of data science.
Supports and connects the growing data science research community
Builds research capacity in data science to tackle complex issues
Drives new research challenges through collaborative research projects
Promotes and provides opportunities for knowledge transfer
Identifies and provides training courses for students, academics, industry and the third sector
