After 3 long years, The Biarri Applied Mathematics Conference is back, and this year will be co-hosted with The University of Sydney. The Biarri Applied Mathematics (BAM) is a conference that bridges the gap between mathematics in academia and industry. We bring together guest speakers from a broad range of backgrounds and interests – from University Research to Commercial Applications.
The theme for BAM2022 is The limits of predictability. In the current age of AI, data and digitisation, lofty promises are made with respect to the capability of data-driven and analytical digital systems. Unfortunately, the world is a complex place, and as powerful as current modelling capabilities are, there are unarguable limits to our analytical capabilities. This conference will explore those limits and help participants understand how mathematical techniques are defining, expanding and helping us understand our analytical limits better than ever before. Come and hear examples of projects and case studies of both successful and failed attempts to realise mathematical modelling in a variety of scenarios. The event will help participants understand where analytical techniques can be successful and where the complexity, randomness or non-linearity of the system is too great, even for the most powerful tools we have today.
