The Cafe Scientifique, Falmouth

Picture.

At the creation of Cornwall BSA, it was agreed that the BSA branch incorporates the Cafe Scientifique in Falmouth.

 

During the restructing into Cornwall Science Community, Falmouth’s Cafe Scientifique is going into a short hiatus with more talks in planning for the end of the year.

 

Please Note that there are also active Cafe Sci’s in Redruth and in Launceston, which are quite autonomous.
Autumn 2018 Season: Maths, friend or foe?

For the autumn and winter of 2018/19, the Falmouth Cafe Sci programme of talks is entirely given over to one area whose pervasive influence on all our lives has lately become ever more apparent: mathematics.

Over this season, the Cornwall Branch of the British Science Association brings you five interconnected discussions in the Cafe Sci format on the growing role of algorithms, big data and mathematics in our lives.

From algorithms in art to maths in everyday life, to questions over the safety in use of personal data: to big questions over the very nature and possibility of mathematics in a world that evolution has brought about; the ambivalent impact of endless targets on the culture of public services; and finally,  the magic of pattern versus the challenge of numeracy.
