Graham Cormode is awarded the Adams Prize for 2017

cormode.jpgWDSI member Professor Graham Cormode is one of two joint winners of this year's Adams Prize, a prestigious award in the mathematical sciences made by the University of Cambridge. This year's Adams prize was awarded for research in Statistical Analysis of Big Data, and Graham shares the prize with Professor Richard Samworth of Cambridge.

As the announcement from Cambridge states:

Professor Cormode is a computer scientist who has made seminal contributions to algorithms used in the management and analysis of massive data sets, including the celebrated and widely used 'count-min sketch'

Previous winners of the Adams Prize have included Maxwell (1857), Jeffreys (1926), Hawking (1966), Penrose (1966), and our own David Hobson (2003).

Many congratulations to Graham on this significant recognition of his research!

ATI workshop on data science in sport

Alan Turing InstituteNext week (2-3 November 2015) sees sports-industry specialists and academic data-scientists meet in London to discuss the potential for novel data-analytic approaches in various aspects of sport. Warwick Statistics/WDSI scientists Anjali Mazumder and David Firth are organisers (together with Ioannis Kosmidis at UCL, Kostas Zygalakis at Edinburgh and Richard Samworth at Cambridge). The 2-day meeting is part of an extensive programme of Alan Turing Institute "scoping workshops" taking place over the next few weeks.

Organisations represented at the workshop will include the English Institute of Sport, UK Sport, British Cycling, Team Sky and Mercedes Formula 1 among others, along with leading data-science researchers from several univesities. The workshop is now fully subscribed, but more information about it can be found online: visit the workshop website, Data Science for Data-Rich Sports.

Alan Turing running in 1946The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s new, national institute for data science, established in 2015 and named after the well-known British mathematician who was one of the originators of modern computer science. (Alan Turing himself was also a prominent athlete, a marathon runner who reached national trials and who almost made the British team for the 1948 Olympic Games. The picture shows Turing running competitively, in 1946.)
