Partner Event - DVOM: How to Get Rich Quick

About this Event

Tickets available for ONLINE or IN-PERSON (Bayes Centre, Edinburgh)

This talk is part of the Diverse Voices of Maths series by ICMS, to highlight the variety of maths and mathematicians.

Being able to determine the future is a great way to get money. From fairground games to the stock market, knowing what will happen is a great advantage. But even if we don’t know for certain, statistics and probability can help us make valuable predictions. In this session, Sophie gives an introduction to the world of finance and shares some of the Maths she used working as a trader.
