C2D3 research brings together fundamental research into data analysis methods with applications in science, medicine, technology and society.


C2D3 ECR and Student Conference 2024
University of Cambridge event
Monday, 23 September 2024, 9.00am to 2.00pm

C2D3 seeks to create an interdisciplinary data science and AI community for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) and students, as a place for supporting researchers and their ideas, sharing solutions and networking. 

This half-day conference will provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss research problems and solutions, and make new connections. During the conference we will hear presentations from the C2D3 ECR Seed Fund Awardees (2023 and 2024) and lightning talks from the ECR and student community.

Study uncovers how the brain simulates possible future actions by drawing from our stored memories.

In pausing to think before making an important decision, we may imagine the potential outcomes of different choices we could make. While this ‘mental simulation’ is central to how we plan and make decisions in everyday life, how the brain works to accomplish this is not well understood.
