Symposium on Big Data in finance, retail and commerce — Statistical and Computational Challenges

02/11/2017 — 03/11/2017 Universidade de Lisboa (CEAUL) Locate in map

The objective of the symposium is to present new approaches to deal with Big Data Applications in finance, retail and commerce bringing together professionals from companies in these areas and researchers who generate sound methods and tools to handle such data. It is hoped that such an interaction may help in understanding the new needs and trends in the emerging field of Data Sciences.

Axiomatic Thinking

11/10/2017 09:00 — 14/10/2017 Academia das Ciências de Lisboa Locate in map

100 years ago, in 1917 David Hilbert gave his seminal talk Axiomatisches Denken at a meeting of the Swiss Mathematical Society in Zurich. It marks the beginning of Hilbert's return to his foundational studies, which ultimately resulted in the establishment of proof theory as a new branch in the emerging field of mathematical logic. Hilbert also used the opportunity to bring Paul Bernays back to Göttingen as his main collaborator in foundational studies in the years to come.

The aim of this conference is to reevaluate the success of Hilbert's axiomatic method which did not only lay the foundations for the understanding of modern mathematics, but which also found its way in many applications, first of all - and as vividly advocated by Hilbert - in Physics. Even for the seemingly negative results, as in the case of Gödel's incompleteness theorems, it were Hilbert's sharply posed questions which opened up completely new and unexpected perspectives for our understanding of Mathematics.
