Bengio on Les années lumière; Durand interviewed by Labrèche

CRM researchers have had a high public profile of late. Here are two recent instances of our members in the public eye. Yoshua Bengio has been interviewed for a three-part series on deep learning for the Radio Canada program Les années lumière. The third and final part was be broadcast on Sunday, October 23 at 12:51 PM. Stéphane Durand was interviewed by Marc Labrèche for LaPresse, on the theory of relativity and the possibility of time travel. The interview is available here.

Hélène Desmarais and Luis Seco named to the CRM's Board of Directors

Hélène Desmarais is Chairperson of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the Centre d’entreprises et d’innovation de Montréal (CEIM). She also chairs the Board of Directors of HEC Montréal.

Luis Seco is a co-founder and the President and CEO of Sigma Analysis & Management. He started his career in financial risk management in 1996, while a Professor at the University of Toronto, creating the RiskLab Toronto, a research center that serviced the financial sector. He is currently the Director of the Mathematical Finance Program at the University of Toronto.

Maksym Radziwill awarded the 2016 SASTRA Ramanujan Prize

Maksym Radziwill, CRM Member, has been awarded this year's SASTRA Ramanujan Prize. He shares the prize with Kaisa Matomaki for their extraordinary joint work which was carried out largely while both were visiting Montreal as guests of the CRM and the Laboratoire CICMA. Maksym just joined the permanent faculty at McGill this year and we are very proud to count him among the newest members of CICMA. | Read more

A Message from Canada's Mathematical Sciences Institutes for Canada's Fundamental Science Review

The Mathematical Sciences are the foundation of any advanced research ecosystem, and Canada’s mathematical sciences institutes have been instrumental in supporting this ecosystem. They do so by providing scientific leadership, by developing coherent national strategies for mathematical and statistical discovery and innovation, by transcending geographic and disciplinary barriers, by maximizing provincial leveraging, by spearheading international partnerships, and by connecting the research enterprise with the imperatives of providing training and education at all levels. | Read more

CRM Laboratories

Mathematical Analysis
Both classical and central to modern mathematics, mathematical analysis lies at the core of our understanding of any continuous system. The mathematical analysis laboratory has undertaken in-depth studies of dynamical systems, partial differential equations and spectra of operators.

The objective of CAMBAM (Center for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine) is the application of mathematics to address biological challenges across all levels of biological organisation ranging from the molecular/genetic through single cell and whole organ physiology to population and ecosystem dynamics.

CICMA is an inter-university research center officially established in 1989. Its research activities are concentrated on number theory, arithmetic geometry, computational algebra and sporadic finite groups.

CIRGET is a joint force of researchers at the cutting-edge of international research in differential geometry, topology, geometric group theory and mathematical physics.

GIREF gathers researchers and research groups from several academic institutions in order to facilitate research, development, training of specialists and interaction with the industrial circles in the field of modeling an numeric simulation.

Founded in 1982, LaCIM is one of the principal research center in combinatorics, algebraic combinatorics and theoretical computer science on the international scene.

Applied Mathematics
As a result of state-of-the-art computational resources, it has become possible to simulate problems and figure solutions that we only dreamed of a decade ago. This has been a driving force in the creation of this laboratory.

Mathematical Physics
Mathematical physics represents one of the traditional strengths of the CRM since the beginning of the 1970's. Research focus on several of the most active scientific areas in mathematical physics.

Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA)
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are dynamic and ever-expanding disciplines. The incorporation of MILA into the CRM will give the CRM a more important role within the so-called “digital strategy” of the Québec government.

The work of PhysNum is focused on cerebral imaging and its method. Started within a collaboration with INSERM (Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière) and the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal, this trend took shape during the study of reconstruction signals in magnetoencephalographic problems.

Probability lab members pursue research in a broad range of areas, spanning theoretical and applied, continuous and discrete probability. A particular focus is on the development and analysis of probabilistic models for real-world phenomena from physics, biology, statistics and computer science.

The Actuarial and Financial Mathematics Laboratory is an inter-university group of researchers focused on the mathematics of actuarial science and finance. Its research activities are concentrated on the applications of probabilistic and statistical techniques to analyze random events with financial impact.

Statistics is central to many endeavours in society. Whether it be through surveys from sampling, clinical trials to study various biomedical treatments or experimental designs in agriculture or industry, statistical methodology can be found everywhere in science. The statistics laboratory rallies a great number of statisticians from Eastern Canada.
