Venue: T2-102


We currently live in the age of big data. where discovering, interpreting. learning, ancutilizing the information. knowledge. and resources hidden in data can greatly benefihumanity and improve our daily lives. However, the vast amount of data we collect isincredibly complex, and our expectations of what we can achieve with it are high. As a resultthis presents numerous challenges and opportunities for various fields, particularly in therealm of mathematical science.

In this presentation, we will highlight specific examples, particularly in image and videcprocessing, to demonstrate how mathematics has played a crucial role in the era of big data.Additionally, we will show how mathematics can push the boundaries of data science andexplore the challenges that mathematicians face in this era of big data
