The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences Rwanda (AIMS Rwanda) is accepting applications for a graduate training course “Foundational Methods in Data Science,” which will take place at AIMS Rwanda in Kigali from March 6 to April 2, 2022.
The highly interactive training school, which will be organized around six (6) core courses and additional training components, will bring together renowned international and national academics, researchers, and graduate students who will be working on topics relevant to modern data science, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, their mathematical theories, and numerical implementations, using methods from statistics, optimization, functional analysis, and control and dynamical systems.
The training school will provide a platform for researchers and data scientists to interact in an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary environment. South Africa, Senegal, Ghana, Cameroon, Tanzania, and Rwanda all have AIMS scientific centers of excellence.
For the past 15 years, AIMS has provided superb postgraduate training to Africa’s finest math, scientific, and engineering graduates. AIMS produces a steady stream of bright young African scientists who contribute to subjects as diverse as epidemiology and public health, computer science, economics, and astronomy.
In addition, AIMS established the Next Einstein Forum (NEF), a platform that connects science, society, and policy in Africa with the rest of the globe in order to harness research for global human development. As a result, it is well-positioned to lead Africa’s quantum research center, drawing on its wealth of expertise and experience.
The AIMS 2022 “Foundational Methods in Data Science” training school provides funding opportunities to its trainee to cover local costs during the training.
Full COVID19 vaccination is required for in-person attendance.
