IMS2012

Posted by ubpdqn on June 15, 2012

I had the opportunity to attend the International Mathematica Symposium 2012. This was a very interesting meeting. The meeting was dominated by Applied Mathematicians, Physicists, Computer Scientists and Engineers.

Some highlights:

  • Turing lectures: The nephew of Alan Turing provided a personal insight. This was followed by Stephen Wolfram, Andrew Hodges and Roger Penrose. All stimulating and interesting in their own way
  • The future developments of Mathematica were directly and indirectly hinted at. In particular, increased image processing including Image3D as well enhancing the ease of use of the interface for users.
  • The range of amazing content, e.g. LHC  data analysis, numerical relativity supercompuetr dataset analysis, and a most delightful presentation by a material’s engineer about ‘isometric origami’
  • The use of GPU for parallelization and increasing speed of computation

I await eagerly the next version of Mathematica.

 

Peace to all.
