Noel-Ann Bradshaw (University of Greenwich) gave a brilliant talk on how multi-objective evolutionary algorithms can be used within portfolio optimisation in the financial markets.
Gareth Howell (Cardiff University) gave us a sneak preview into the life of a PhD student and talked about research he's conducting on Theoretical Statistics, including the Farey Series for finding all rational fractions between 0 and 1.
David Youdan also told us about the possible merge between the IMA and LMS into a more unified mathematical society.
All in all, it was a stimulating day and one I certainly will never forget.
My favourite Quote of the day:
