Artificial intelligence is completely remodelling today’s societies to the point that many argue that it is fostering a fourth industrial revolution.

Advances in Machine Learning are profoundly transforming technology. In fact, and basing on recent discoveries in Mathematics and Data Science, complex algorithms imbedded in modern systems allow to accomplish more complex tasks (decision-support systems, human-machine interaction, intelligent agents, etc). Today, AI-based applications requiring a deep knowledge of Mathematics and Data Science can be found in many fields, ranging from Insurance and Finance, to Health and Medicine, to Environmental studies, to Exploration of Space, to Digital Humanities, etc…
