Speaker: Ben Orlin, the author of "Math with Bad Drawings: Illuminating the Ideas That Shape Our Reality" as well as the blog https://mathwithbaddrawings.com/
Abstract: Math is supposed to be useful. And yet mathematicians are always chasing imaginary visions, abstractions divorced from reality. Could that possibly prove useful to science? Actually, yes. In a big way.
