As the Aviva-Cambridge partnership moves into its second academic year, we are very excited to welcome 3 hugely talented PhD students funded by Aviva. Their work is very wide ranging, as are their backgrounds.
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
