Young mathematical elite

The last few weeks have been a hive of activity at MIDS. In addition to the Open Day and Girls' Day, on which we welcomed interested pupils to the Georgianum, two special groups also visited us recently.

On 24.04.2024, a group of pupils from a German school in Prague visited MIDS. Having previously explored the WFI, the students were warmly welcomed at the Georgianum. Dr. Raphael Schulz introduced the MIDS and the Data Science course. Finally, the students were able to learn about the page rank algorithm in a taster lecture.

On 03.05.2024, we then welcomed a group of highly talented students from the region to the institute. Prof. Nadja Ray explained the concept of studying with a lecture/exercise as opposed to school. They then took part in the lecture "Analysis II for Data Science". The topic of convergence of sequences was discussed. At the end of the visit, Prof. Felix Voigtlaender gave a lecture on the topic "What is machine learning?"
