Act Beyond Borders – mathematics for global sustainability



Prof. Hiroaki Kitano  [http://staticapp.icpsc.com/icp/loadimage.php/mogile/1261883/6f106db224ed281cf3002d99f242e698/image/jpeg]

CEO – Sony Computer Science Lab

President – The Systems Biology Institute

Mathematics helps us to understand and

model just about everything, from economic systems to sustainability and drug discovery.



Hiroaki will talk about some of his projects

that bridge the waters between artificial

intelligence, robotics, bioinformatics and systems biology.

How to stack oranges in three dimensions, 24 dimensions and beyond



[http://staticapp.icpsc.com/icp/loadimage.php/mogile/1261883/22cbceccca17b41c1fbc7ea9b5fb9a2a/image/jpeg]Prof. Akshay Venkatesh, Stanford University



A bucket full of oranges… Is there room for one more? Akshay takes us on a 400 year long journey that answers this question. He will then propel

us into a 24-dimensional world and explain how stacking oranges in such high dimensions

connects to the Voyager Spacecraft.

Optimisation in Smart Systems and Products



Prof. Stephen Boyd, Stanford University



[http://staticapp.icpsc.com/icp/loadimage.php/mogile/1261883/0768d7e275ffd86fd153b7cf142391ab/image/jpeg]Stephen is an optimisation expert and the 2013 AMSI-ANZIAM Lecturer. In a world where productivity is second to none, mathematical algorithms that automatically make complex decisions or take actions in real-time are

essential.



In a nontechnical talk Stephen will cover

issues that surround machine learning and automatic control – where the future of many industries are headed.
