MoMath Winton Power Series
Calling all mathematicians and math professionals: MoMath is kicking off a brand new lecture series with you in mind. The MoMath Winton Power Series is targeted at a mathematically sophisticated audience, and provides a forum for top mathematicians to share a significant topic or discovery they are excited about. Each presentation will be followed by a question and answer session and an informal reception. MoMath is delighted that Fields Medalist Sir Timothy Gowers will be on hand in the fall to lead off this exciting new series. For further information, call the National Museum of Mathematics at (212) 542-0566 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
For several decades, people have attempted to write computer programs that can solve mathematical problems. Despite these efforts, there are still problems that human mathematicians find very easy, but which cannot be solved by even the best computer programs. Join Tim Gowers as he discusses why this occurs and describes recent work that may change this situation, and may even, within a few decades, put mathematical researchers out of a job.
