Department Name: Isaac Newton Institute (Math Science)

Abstract

Mathematics, with its capacity for generality and abstract reasoning, is a subject that is unique in its ability to penetrate deep within other disciplines, to provide a common language for establishing communication channels between research communities, and in the longevity of its influence.

The Isaac Newton Institute (INI) is an international hub for supporting mathematical sciences research of the highest quality and impact. It attracts world leading researchers, in all areas of mathematics and cognate disciplines, who interact through a variety of long and short thematic programmes as well as associated workshops, follow-on meetings and a plethora of one-off events. Based in Cambridge, and benefiting from a bespoke and iconic building as well as many world-leading facilities of Cambridge University, INI is nevertheless an independent forum serving the whole of UK mathematical sciences. INI celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

To the end of 2016 there had been 129 long-term programmes in total, and over 26,000 INI programme and workshop participants including 81 Rothschild Visiting Professors/Fellows, from Wolf Prize winner Vladimir Arnold in 1992 to Dijkstra Prize winning theoretical computer scientist Cynthia Dwork in 2016. Participants have also included 27 Fields Medalists, 13 Nobel Laureates, 12 Abel Prize winners, 25 Wolf Prize winners and over 50 Clay Senior Scholars as well as numerous winners of major prizes in other disciplines. This does not include unregistered participants, who are welcome to drop-in to events for a couple of days at a time.

INI gives UK researchers unparalleled opportunities to work with one another and with a critical mass of leading international figures in their field, unencumbered by teaching or administrative duties. It maximizes potential for knowledge exchange and the dissemination of UK research achievements, while exposing UK early career researchers to world leaders in their discipline.

A common strategic position of all Research Councils is to emphasise the importance of innovative mathematical and statistical methods to their science and in the training of young researchers. From its inception, INI's programmes and embedded workshops were demonstrably intra or interdisciplinary and conceived to accelerate research impact within the mathematical and sister sciences. Recently INI has broadened its remit to address fundamental questions in the social sciences, medicine etc. It has also concerned itself with the instigation of mechanisms to support diversity and gender equality in the sciences, and to nurture early career researchers so as to enlarge the people pipeline.

The Turing Gateway to Mathematics (TGM) was created in 2013 as the knowledge exchange arm of INI. Since then it has brought the mathematical sciences community together with an impressive range of over 700 partners in business, industry, commerce and government. It has a proven set of pathways to impact, and partners with a range of organisations to assist the whole of the mathematical sciences community.

Public engagement events are regularly hosted at INI, including its Rothschild Public Seminars. In addition to the 25th Anniversary events being held at the Institute, a highlight of which will be a discussion between Sir Andrew Wiles and his biographer Simon Singh, INI is organising a "road show" across the UK including talks by Keith Moore, Librarian at the Royal Society, and leading British space scientists.

INI is committed to the maintenance of a reputation for creativity and mathematical excellence. This will mean continuing to deliver ground-breaking research of the highest international standard, supporting the UK mathematical sciences community both in academe and beyond, and further extending the reach of mathematics into other disciplines and applications via TGM. Throughout it will strive to maintain the culture of creativity and achievement for which it is widely recognised.

Planned Impact

The Isaac Newton Institute provides underpinning support for research for the whole of the UK mathematical Sciences community. Its record of curiosity-led programming across the sciences has been substantial, but it also puts non-academic impact at the heart of much of its activity, in the areas of People, Economy and Society.

In the last few years INI's knowledge exchange role has expanded significantly, and now, through the Turing Gateway to Mathematics (TGM), it routinely facilitates this impact to an impressive list of over 700 stakeholder organisations, including as exemplars: Airbus Defence and Space, BAE Systems, Bank of England, Barclays, Deloitte, GCHQ, National Physical Laboratory, Telespazio Vega and Unilever. In total, they span the industrial, commercial, charitable and public sectors and have interacted with scientists in a wide variety of thematic areas including mathematics, statistics, big data, chemistry, climatology, computer science, cryptography, engineering, environmental science, energy, finance, healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, medical imaging, physics, security, space, uncertainty quantification. A typical meeting arranged by TGM was on the mathematical modelling of Algorithmic Trading, held in March 2017 at the Alan Turing Institute, London; it was heavily oversubscribed and attracted roughly an even split between academic and non-academic participants, which is common for such events.

As well as keeping stakeholders up-to-date with current mathematical and scientific technology, TGM can help broker long-term relationships which lead to significant impacts to both companies and individuals. Specific evidence for this is provided in the project partner letters. Similarly, long-term INI programmes, in pure or applied areas, can lead to impacts in highly current topics; for example models for the spread of infectious diseases developed at INI in 2013 are starting to directly influence policy in the prediction and planning for future human and animal virus outbreaks.

Associations forged at INI can often lead to new career opportunities for early career participants outside academe; for example, details are given elsewhere about two researchers who moved from academe to take up highly successful careers at Microsoft and Cryptomathic.

In regard to societal benefit, a recent INI programme on the Mathematics and Statistics of Forensic Science led to production of a set of guidelines "specifying conditions under which particular techniques can be used to provide results and reliability estimates that are sufficiently certain to be presented in court without the risk of being challenged on appeal". An associated TGM workshop to this programme was attended by leading judges and barristers, including David Kitchin the Lord Justice of Appeal.

A further example of INI's societal impact through TGM, raised by a project partner, is the 2013 workshop on Policy Support organised with the Department of Communities and Local Government. The meeting discussed policy issues related to business rates, national resilience and homelessness, and was the first time that a government department had engaged so closely and openly with the mathematical sciences community.

The other major beneficiaries of INI and TGM activity are the general public and especially school students. Public lectures are provided by the ever-changing array of world-renowned researchers to a packed audience, and mathematically oriented artwork and exhibitions are regularly on display for non-mathematicians to peruse. The Deputy Director and Director regularly talk to school students about the beauty, ubiquity and efficacy of mathematics, and the former is active in organising 'Girls in Maths' events. INI has bold ambitions to team up with other experts in mathematics communication to exploit the academic resource in the building in order to produce online, printed and broadcast material accessible to all.

Description The Isaac Newton Institute is internationally acclaimed as a world-leading visitor research institute, running programmes of the highest quality in the mathematical sciences and its applications. A measure of its success is the popularity of its programmes and workshops, which attract world-leading mathematicians and other scientists from the UK and internationally. From March 2014 to March 2018, 32 programmes from one month to six months in length were held. See http://www.newton.ac.uk/science/programmes for the details and for videos of lectures delivered. In addition, its impact acceleration arm, the Newton Gateway runs a strong sequence of knowledge exchange activities for mathematicians, other academics and stakeholders in industry, commerce, government, charitable sector etc.

The Institute's visitors, numbering over 2500 each year, engage in furthering the corpus of mathematics as well as extending the reach of mathematics into other sciences and into society more generally. There have been spectacular successes in the Institute's history, such as the announcement of the proof of Fermat's last theorem, and also radical and broad forums, where mathematicians have engaged with policy makers and legislators in helping improve society.
Exploitation Route To help maintain the strength of the UK mathematical research infrastructure, the Institute builds and strengthens capacity in strategically important research areas across the spectrum from pure to applied mathematics and statistics; fosters agility in addressing new and fast-moving research areas; facilitates intra and interdisciplinary activity; increases engagement of UK researchers with the best groups internationally; and promotes the development of talented researchers. The Newton Institute is one of the leading mathematics research institutes in the world, and serves the whole of the UK by enabling its mathematical scientists to engage regularly with top international scientists.

Description The science undertaken at the Institute covers the widest possible range from Astronomy to Zoology; our role is to disseminate the use of cutting-edge mathematics and statistics in all of these areas. Reports from the organisers of the completed programmes are available on the Institute's website, with details of publications and lectures for downloading on www.newton.ac.uk/. The Newton Gateway (formerly the Turing Gateway to Mathematics) is actively involved with Impact Acceleration and Knowledge Exchange in the mathematical sciences nationally, see gateway.newton.ac.uk/ In March 2013, the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences launched the Turing Gateway to Mathematics. Its mission statement (and that of its successor, the Newton Gateway) is to act as a channel for the flow of knowledge and ideas between the mathematical sciences and the users of mathematics. It does this by facilitating interactions and activities such as programmes of work, events, projects, education and training in areas where maths skills are needed. Acting as a gateway between academic mathematicians and industry, government, and other disciplines, it helps to widen access to mathematics generally and shorten pathways to impacts. Since the Gateway was established, it has consolidated its presence, delivering a range of activities across a number of different themes and sectors ranging from financial risk, through space and security sectors, Big Data to public policy. In addition to running visitor research programmes, the Isaac Newton Institute brings academic researchers in the mathematical sciences together with industrial, commercial and government organisations and individuals through activities such as Open for Business events. The success of these (see www.newton.ac.uk /outreach/open-for-business) together with follow-on activity for the research programmes is a key element of the Newton Gateway initiative. But it now offers much more, nurturing and expanding engagement opportunities for, and strategic relationships with, the public sector, academia and industry. This has been achieved by facilitating interactions and activities such as programmes of work, study groups, workshops, research and training programmes, as well as less formal, small working groups in which academics and business personnel collaborate.

Collaborator Contribution The partners helped identify speakers to attend to talk about the particular EME challenges and helped to develop the Programme.
Impact In partnership with dstl (Defence Science & Technology Laboratory), PA Consulting and academic mathematical experts, the Gateway worked to develop a framework to engage the mathematical community in this area. Extensive research and consultation was needed to identify participants from a number of diverse fields including (but not limited to): signal processing, optimisation, operational research, imaging and vision, control theory, wave theory, machine learning, electrical and communications engineering. This culminated in the running of a three day workshop from 8th-10th January 2020, to investigate mathematically led solutions to defined challenges in the EM environment. During the workshop, breakout sessions were organised around the individual challenges and the six groups presented their findings on the final day. By allowing participants to move between challenges this enabled them to apply their expertise to scoping out more than one problem. Participants then had the opportunity to submit outline proposals either individually or as a group, with the most promising ideas going forward to a further phase to be developed as short research projects. This initial activity is part of a three year programme of work and includes a longer term plan to build closer links and collaborations between applied mathematicians and the owners of complex challenges, establishing a joined up multi-disciplinary UK community for this area.

Collaborator Contribution The partners and academic organiser helped to develop the Progamme - identifying speakers and delegates to be invited.
Impact In recognition of the potential and possibilities of DLT as a technology for both Government and the UK as a whole, it aimed to support appropriate use cases and promote research into scalable DLT. This is set against the backdrop that DLT has sometimes been mooted as a solution to technical problems, where it isn't appropriate and there is a need to separate the reality from the hype in order to better understand what the technology can really do. It also served to bring together stakeholders (research and end users) from multiple communities, to help connect people and build closer links and collaborations to strengthen the community. There is a recognised need to explore appropriate applications beyond crypto currencies and a key feature of the day was to highlight a number of use cases across various research areas and applications. *An overview - current situation, a national perspective *Research areas and applications - archives of digital public records, foundations of distributed ledgers, human centred design, DLT in central banks *Challenges and future opportunities - legal/standards framework and general data protection regulations implications, UK Government perspective, vision and framework for the future *Vision and Future Strategy.

PI Contribution The Newton Gateway to Mathematics led on the delivery and hosting of the event - setting up the web page, identifying and inviting speakers, registrations and developing and provision of delegate materials and post event evaluation.
Collaborator Contribution The academic organisers of the INI Research Programme on the Approximation, Sampling and Compression in Data Science worked with the Gateway to identify the speakers and to develop the programme for the workshop.
Impact Data science is a fast growing academic discipline incorporating many interdisciplinary areas in engineering, physics and mathematics. Deep learning is now established as a main tool in large parts of modern data science. However, the understanding of deep learning, both from a mathematical and engineering point of view, is somewhat limited. This event aimed to address questions that highlight the need for understanding the science and the mathematics behind deep learning and data science. It took place as part of the Research Programme on Approximation, Sampling and Compression in Data Science and explored both the existing theory and the big unanswered questions regarding the science and mathematics of deep learning. It featured talks from leading academics, as well as researchers from industry and provided a wide perspective on the many facets of modern data science.
