XX Semana de la Ciencia

On November 3, 4, 6, 10 and 12 the Department of Mathematics of the UAM – Universidad Autónoma de Madrid organized the “XX Semana de la Ciencia” (20th. Week of Science) to bring Mathematics closer to the public and students of 3rd and 4th ESO and High School.

On November 6th (18:00H) our Head Enrique Zuazua will be giving the workshop “Hire me, I’m a mathematician“, where he will explain how mathematical knowledge is applied to all fields of our life; so much so Mathematics training is one of the most demanded in the labor market. This effect is amplified by the rise of Artificial Intelligence, a discipline whose mathematical foundations and challenges will be briefly described. The conference will be informative and will be aimed at a wide audience, avoiding technicalities.
