      • Weapons of Math Destruction, a Talk by Cathy O'Neil
      • Ward Circle Lecture Hall 2
      • VSPACER
      • Big data is good at a lot of things. Some of them are good, but one of those things is obscuring human decisions behind a facade of mathematical objectivity. Cathy will talk about what she sees as the worst such examples, that increase inequality and threaten democracy.
        About the speaker: Cathy O’Neil earned a Ph.D. in math from Harvard, was a postdoc at the MIT math department, and a professor ...more

      • The Math/Stat Colloquium: Coding Theory and Riemann Hypothesis, a Talk by Prof. Artur Elezi (American University)
      • Gray Hall, Bentley Meeting Room
      • Generating functions for the number of solutions of systems of polynomial equations over finite fields are called local zeta functions. In 19th century, Weil formulated a few conjectures about these functions. He was able to prove them in the case of a single polynomial of two variables - a curve. The part of this theorem that is relevant for our talk states that the local zeta function of a ...more
