Oriel Ball 2018

“We are thrilled to be the Platinum Sponsor of the Oriel Commemoration Ball again this year. As many of you will know, we have been working with Oriel College for over ten years through our outstanding joint Summer Institute programmes here in Oxford, and this is a perfect opportunity for us to celebrate our long and loyal partnership.”
Dr Dominik Wanner, Director of Summer Institute here at Oriel College (University of Oxford)

Based on this year’s theme of Ludibrium – a word derived from Latin meaning ‘fun and games’ – the Oriel Ball promises to transport guests to the best times of their childhood by transforming the beautiful ancient college grounds into a playground like no other.

Still thinking about signing up for our Global Alumni Reunion? You better hurry because spaces are filling up fast and our early bird discount deadline is ending in three days.

We announced in our last newsletter that Maria, an alumna from Austria, will be attending and giving a talk about her career at Google. We are delighted this time to introduce Dr Thomas Soebbing, an alumnus from Germany, who will also be speaking at the reunion.

Digital Future

If you think artificial intelligence belongs only in sci-fi movies, think again. According to a trend report by the International Life Sciences Institute, as we enter an increasingly digital world, the skills and expertise in areas such as artificial intelligence and big data analytics are becoming increasingly coveted in the future workforce.

If computer science is your thing, then you might be interested in the Artificial Intelligence track we offer as part of our Summer Institute here at Oriel College. Taught by Professor Bernardo Cuenca Grau, a Fellow of Oriel College and a professor at the University of Oxford Department of Computer Science, this course is designed to get you up to speed with the world of AI.
You will be introduced to the concept of search as a fundamental technique in solving AI problems, and explore knowledge representation and ontologies to look at the nature of intelligence and cognition that allows computers to display human-like abilities.

How Formula 1 helps trucks become greener

Did you know that the level of research and development into Formula 1 racing is comparable to the aerospace industry? At the University of Cambridge, significant research is being carried out to study the flow underneath trucks and truck trailers with the aim of reducing fuel consumption and emissions caused by road freight.

Professor Holger Babinsky, Deputy Head of the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering and a Fellow of Magdalene College, will be speaking at our Cambridge Summer Institute programme about his research into vehicle flows, and how this can help trucks become greener.

Calling All Medical Students

Cambridge Summer Institute offers a Medicine track designed for current medicine students as well as healthcare professionals. Divided into Discovery Level, for 1st and 2nd year students, and Exploratory Level, for more experienced students, delegates will attend lectures and workshops to develop their understanding of the UK’s medical education and healthcare system – the NHS.

During the second week, the focus of the programme shifts to medical ethics and palliative medicine, where delegates will explore the fundamentals of palliative care, including assessment and treatment practices such as non-pharmacological, pharmacological, and interventional techniques.
