Mathematics underpins much of the scientific and technological progress of modernity. This workshop will bring together experts to study the conceptual and neurological basis of mathematical thought and creativity, different aspects of which are associated with brain structures evolved for different purposes. We will explore links to machine learning, which plays a critical role as a model for cognition, as well as cognitive psychology, neuroscience, philosophy and pure and applied mathematics. For further information, please visit the workshop website. The conference is part of CARMA’s Special Semester on Mathematical Thinking.

At this workshop, we will target discussions at forming new interdisciplinary collaborations and formulating concrete research questions with a view towards major grant applications in the ARC Discovery and linkage programmes, among others. Expected benefits arising from such collaborations include machine learning improvements, computer assistance for mathematical research and other high-level cognitive tasks, and improved insight into mathematics education at all levels.
