SPIEF 2018Maths in the Digital Age
Mathematics has been with us for around 3,000 years, and most advances incorporated it in some way or another. It has been largely responsible for several technological revolutions. It appears as though we are on the cusp of a major technological revolution, which will to a great extent be founded on mathematics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. I would even go as far as to say that this leap forward will not be social as such – it will be more substantive than that.
