Insights in silico: from computational science to data science

Wednesday 2 March 2016, at 5:00 PM
Faraday Lecture Theatre Swansea University,, Singleton Campus Swansea, SA2 8PP

College of Science Distinguished Lecture Series – Winter 2016

by Prof Richard D Kenway OBE FRSE FInstP FLSW

 Tait Professor of Mathematical Physics, School of Physics and Astronomy, The University of Edinburgh

Discussions generated by the talk will continue accompanied by light refreshments in the Robert Recorde room until 7:30pm.

Abstract:

Advances in computing technology are driving new ways of doing science. In our lifetimes, we’ve seen computational science mature, as parallel computing has led to supercomputers powerful enough to simulate physical systems. Today, the explosion of digital data that record all aspects of our environment and behaviour is building an enormous accessible resource for business and research. Is this so-called Big Data the dawn of another new methodology, or just marketing hype?
