Department hosts ICT Graduate School
16 July 2015Two new ICT Graduate Schools were announced. The Auckland ICT Graduate school is hosted by the University of Auckland in collaboration with the University of Waikato. Mr Joyce said the ICT Graduate Schools would provide a "vital link" between fast-moving hi-tech industries and tertiary education to deliver more of the skilled graduates the country needed.
Interview with Andre Nies
23 June 2015On his recent visit to London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), Andre Nies presented a seminar on "Interactions of computability and randomness". He also kindly took time out with Andy Lewis-Pye (LSE) to answer a few questions on his research, the future of algorithmic randomness and incorporating classical music into his presentations.

Seminar: Departmental Seminar on Adventures in computational social science: New Zealand as a "social laboratory" (Seminars) Event as iCalendar
26 August 2015, 12 - 1pmOver the next two years, under a James Cook fellowship, we will be constructing a simulation-based model of some of the key socio-demographic processes in New Zealand society over the last quarter century, drawing in the first instance on the New Zealand Longitudinal Census, 1981-2013, as its empirical foundation. Potentially this is a powerful instrument of cooperative social inquiry that can be used for policy testing, for scholarly purposes, and also for teaching as well.
Hacktivate: Asia-Pacific Hackathon 2015 (Computer Science) Event as iCalendar
26 September 2015Hacktivate is a sport for developers, visualised on next generation technology such as the Unreal Engine 4. During the day, teams compete to write the best algorithms for Battleships and in the evening spectators arrive to watch Battleships play out alongside live commentary. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team.
