16:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Staying relevant: claiming a space for Statisticians in Data Science More Information
Despite Statistics being the traditional field for data analysis, people with formal statistical training form a relatively small segment of the Data Science community. Indeed, it is easy to conclude that the influence of Statistics on the field is waning: for instance, Python is slightly more (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Bounding the number of symmetries of a graph More Information
Graphs (also called networks) with a high degree of symmetry are particularly nice objects to study mathematically. When studying the symmetries of a graph it is often useful to look at the local symmetries, that is, those that fix a particular vertex.  An important question then becomes whether or (...)
